“Bruno: Chief of Police” by Martin Walker

Walker, Martin.  Bruno: Chief of Police. (F Wal)

Policing in Chief Bruno Courrèges’s sun-dappled patch of Périgord involves protecting local fromages from E.U. hygiene inspectors, orchestrating village parades and enjoying the obligatory leisurely lunch—that is, until the brutal murder of an elderly Algerian immigrant instantly jolts Walker’s second novel from provincial cozy to timely whodunit.

Reader 1:

The main character, Bruno, is too perfect to be believable.

Reader 2:

Very complicated tale.  Morality brooding under every delightful moment.
