I like mysteries, especially english and swedish mysteries. This was my first Ian Rutledge story and I really enjoyed it. I found it interesting how inspector Rutledge solved the murders without fingerprints, DNA and all the forensic help that is available nowadays. Many people may find that book antiquated and dated but I really loved how how one man pulled it all together without any help from other law enforcement, officials or witnesses. I took away a star because there were some loose ends that were not wrapped up at the end of the book. Will listen to more Rutledge stories.
