Interesting but not riveting
on 9 June 2013
I think it was because none of the characters came across as people you felt empathy for, except possibly the sartorially challenged Acting Sergeant, that made me give this only 3 stars. I hoped the old lady who loves animals might turn into a sort of Miss Marple, she didn't, the detective was full of his own self importance, lived in an elegant flat with his cat and despaired of his sergeant's dress sense and the villagers themselves had not much to commend them.
If there was nothing else around I would read another.
