In the Swedish criminal justice system, certain cases are considered especially strange and difficult, and the dedicated detectives who investigate these crimes are members of an elite squad known as the Sensitive Crimes Division. In this series debut from Alexander McCall Smith, the team consists of Ulf "the Wolf" Varg, thoughtful and diligent; Anna Bengsdotter, who's in love with Varg's car; Carl Holgersson, who likes nothing more than filling out paperwork; and Erik Nykvist, who is deeply committed to fly fishing. Together they will discover why a man has been stabbed in the back of the knee, and begin an unconventional search when a young woman's imaginary boyfriend goes missing.
"Tucking into a brand-new mystery series by Alexander McCall Smith is a lazy-dazy pleasure…. What binds the stories are the tight relationships of Varg and his colleagues and their hilariously human crotchets."—NYTBR
