In this latest novel, there is nothing noir about the world of Ulf Varg, a detective in the Sensitive Crimes Department in the Swedish city of Malmo. Ulf is concerned with very odd, but not too threatening crimes – injuries to the back of the knee caused by an unknown hand, young women who allow their desperation for a boyfriend to get the better of them, and peculiar goings-on in a spa on Sweden's south coast.
The Department of Sensitive Crimes introduces us to the world of this typically Scandinavian character and his friends and colleagues. Further adventures are planned.
For the chance to win this intriguing book, tell us in 25 words or fewer, what very odd crime would you like to investigate? The three we like the best will win.
