Humor

In the hilarious new novel in the best-selling Detective Varg series, an eminent art historian is framed and the ace investigators of the Department of Sensitive Crimes are on the case.
 


Detective Ulf Varg is a man of refined tastes and quite familiar with the art scene in Malmö. So when art historian Anders Kindgren visits the Department of Sensitive Crimes to report a series of bizarre acts committed against him, they swing into action. Fish stuffed into the vents of his car and a manipulated footnote in a recent publication would be cause enough for an investigation, but when a painting Kindgren had confidently appraised as a genuine is later declared a fake, it’s clear that someone is out to tarnish his reputation.
 
Meanwhile, Ulf himself is also weathering personal issues that quickly spiral out of hand. When his lip-reading dog Martin engages in a contretemps with a squirrel, it results in a grievous wound, and Ulf must rush him to the veterinarian and weigh the merits of cosmetic surgery for animals. But later when Martin’s blood is found in the back of Ulf’s classic Saab, Ulf finds himself the subject of a departmental investigation.
 
In the end, Ulf will have to muster all his detective skills and bureaucratic cunning to restore Kindgren’s reputation—as well as his own.
