The many fans of Precious Ramotswe will find further cause
for celebration in the protagonist of Alexander McCall
Smith's irresistibly funny trilogy, the eminent (if
shamefully under-read) philologist Professor Dr. Mortiz-
Maria von Igelfeld of the Institute at Regensburg.
Unnaturally tall, hypersensitive to slights, and oblivious
to his own frequent gaucheries, von Igelfeld is engaged in
a never-ending quest to win the respect he knows is due
Portuguese Irregular Verbs follows the Professor from a
busman's holiday researching old Irish obscenities to a
flirtation with a desirable lady dentist. In The Finer
Points of Sausage Dogs, von Igelfeld practices veterinary
medicine without a license, transports relics for a
schismatically challenged Coptic prelate and is mobbed by
marriage-minded widows on board a Mediterranean cruise
ship. In At the Villa of Reduced Circumstances, the final
novel in the trilogy, we find our hero suffering the
slings of academic intrigue as a visiting fellow at
Cambridge, and the slings of outrageous fortune in an
eventful Columbian adventure.
