A detective was just what the doctor ordered on a Montezuma themed afternoon in Camaguey, Cuba. I had read one book by Turell ages ago, though not this one. I actually enjoyed it. It has all the characteristics of a typical whodunnit, a nice one at it though. Turell has a good sense of humour, small remarks in the book that do not necessarily tell something about the story, make the book fun reading.
The story, in some provincial town in the middle of Denmark is about the murder of a prostitute, where a suspect was caught within minutes. Yet a journalist, a lawyer and a police detective from the capital do not believe that the boy, a few sandwiches short for a picnic, is actually a killer.
