another excellent book by Gunnar Staalesen with narration by Colin Mace

realistic characters, sustained suspense, good sense of place and time. hard to put down, great revealing of the ending without a big wrap it up to explain what happened

Varg Veum struggles through the seedy side

Varg Veum struggles through the seedy side of town looking for a missing teenager. He uncovers a well organised teenage prostitution operation, has his life threatened a number of times and maintains regular surprise developments right up until the end. An entertaining series in the top tier of my library.
