The man with the silver Saab / Älexander McCall Smith.


"Perplexing, unfathomable, and perhaps unimportant, the cases that Malmo's Department of Sensitive Crimes take on will test them to their limits. Life--and crime--is not always as it seems for Ulf Varg and the other fearless detectives in Malmo's Department of Sensitive Crimes. There are always surprising new cases to take on, and the latest batch is no exception. And that's not to mention Ulf's struggle to contain his feelings for his colleague Anna Bengsdotter. All in all, things are distinctly difficult in Malmo, and it seems up to Ulf and the Department to set them right"-- Provided by publisher.
Detective Ulf Varg is a man of refined tastes and quite familiar with the art scene in Malmö. When art historian Anders Kindgren visits the Department of Sensitive Crimes to report a series of bizarre acts committed against him, the team swing into action. When a painting Kindgren appraised as genuine is declared to be a fake, it's clear someone is out to tarnish his reputation. -- adapted from jacket.
