Mystery & Suspense • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

David Rintoul narrates this latest Alexander McCall Smith story, that features Detective Uif Varg, head of the Department of Sensitive Crimes in Sweden. Rintoul's Varg does not speak with any sort of Swedish accent, but rather in a mild, cultured English voice that communicates the wry humor, quick wit, and ethnic idiosyncrasies found in the dialogue. Varg must find out who sabotaged the breeding of a prize-winning cat, while also looking into spying in the Moderate Extremists party. This new series is a spoof on the detective novel but also involves real detecting. It's short, fun, and smoothly told. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
