(The third book in the Commissario Alec Blume series)

I liked the plot but a few dangling plot lines at the end left me unsatisfied and annoyed at the author. Trying to be 'clever' he undermines the competence of the female police officer, writes off the criminal family with a blood bath that happens 'off stage'. This is NOT on my 'look for more by this author' list.

I enjoyed the setting, but not so much the protagonist - I couldn't find anything sympathetic in him. I probably won't read any more in this series.
