Intriguing and enjoyable,
This review is from: The Mind's Eye (The Van Veeteren Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This novel features Nesser's Chief Inspector Van Veeteren, an eccentric and sometimes brilliant policeman, investigating the deaths of two school teachers. The plot itself is not overly complicated, but Van Veeteren's leaps of logic, critical insights, humour and relationships with colleagues make it a very enjoyable read. Much of the story is not especially dramatic, but it is in Van Veeteren's engagement, or otherwise, with his work that the real interest comes. His approach, reactions and musings are the core of the novel, and keep the reader on their toes throughout.
