    Extremely entertaining!

    The Strange Case Of The Moderate Extremists by Alexander McCall Smith is a ebook novella introducing Detective Ulf Varg. Very soon, a full-length novel featuring Ulf Varg called The Department of Sensitive Crimes will be published. Reading this novella is a perfect way to see whether you like the concept of the new series and want to dip in further! I love the title of this book. The very notion of moderate extremism seems like an oxymoron, which is why it’s such a good title. The book also has extreme moderates! Ha, ha. McCall Smith always seems to be able to combine adjectives and nouns in new and interesting ways in his titles. The main character, Ulf Varg, lives in Sweden and works for the Department of Sensitive Crimes. During the course of the novella, he solves two unrelated mysteries. As in all of McCall Smith’s other novels, the pace is calming, the philosophy gently sprinkled throughout, and by the end things are again right in the world. I love Alexander McCall Smith’s books so much, every time a new one comes out I read it. I think that this book is a perfect place for you to start reading his books too! Note: I received an advance copy of this book through Netgalley.
