In the second installment in the best-selling Detective Varg series, Ulf and his team investigate a notorious philanderer--a wolf of a man whose bad reputation may be all bark and no bite.

The Department of Sensitive Crimes, renowned for taking on the most obscure and irrelevant cases is always prepared to dive into an investigation, no matter how complex. So when the girlfriend of an infamous author who insists her bad-boy beau is being blackmailed approaches Ulf Varg, the department's lead detective, Ulf is determined to help. It's rather difficult to determine what skeletons hide in the hard-living lothario's closet, though. And while Swedes are notoriously tolerant . . . well, there are limits. Even for the Swedish.

The case requires Ulf's total concentration, but he finds himself distracted by his ongoing attraction to his co-worker, Anna, whose own fears about her husband's fidelity are causing a strain on her marriage. When Ulf is also tasked with looking into a group of dealers exporting wolves that seem more canis familiaris than canis lupus, it will require all of his team's investigative instincts and dogged persistence to put these matters to bed.

I am a huge fan of Alexander McCall Smiths series : 44 Scotland Street, Isabel Dalhousie, and No 1 Ladies' Detective agency, so I am well acquainted with his "meandering" style. After all why say something in 10 words if you can use 100 and make it funny besides. I am not bonding with Mr. Varg. There are episodes in the book that are terrific - case in point the only lip-reading deaf dog in Sweden. But the great parts are far too few and between. I wanted to like this new series, but so far it does not have the same appeal as the three listed above. Kristi & Abby Tabby
