McCall Smith's character shows up in all his books. He really is a terrible snob but quite amusing. Unfortunately his lack of fondness for London and England show up in all his books and in this one in particular. As a Londoner who loves his city, I find this a great pity. I do enjoy reading novels based in my home city but would prefer the writer to be a little kinder. I shall of course continue with the series but then I think perhaps McCall Smith should go back to Scotland.
