Read his six books about a police detective office in communist eastern Europe.  Each book tells the

story about a different detective.  The first one is Bridge of Sighs.

Anne Holt's The Lion's Mouth.  As usual, the characters of this Norwegian author are terrifically drawn, but

the plot in this one is a little weak.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

Currently reading a series by Baxter Clare, American police novels set in LA.

Very readable.

Two police procedural so
In Britain just after WWI - River of Darkness, by Rennie Airth

Blood of the Wicked, by Leighton Gage, a police procedural in Brazil

Just read the last page of Peter May's Freeze Frame.

Fantastic writer!

Just starting Toby Ball's The Vault, a dystopian world where apparently files on every one are kept in an underground vault in a noir unnamed City. 

Finally started the Gary Disher Inspector Challis series, The Dragon Man.

This is a very good book, after reading Candice Fox's Hades last month I must say that the future of Australian crime writing is very bright indeed.

Give these writers a try, you wont be sorry.

I just finished reading A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas.  It is a imagined Sherlock Holmes - where Sherlock is a woman.  Well written, great characters.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Procane Chronicle by Oliver Bleek aka Ross Thomas

Pavel and I, by Dan Vyleta.  Setting is Berlin, ten days during the Christmas season, 1946.  Six characters do some good things and some bad things.  An amazing book.
