Absolutely charming, and with a scary twist.
Who says that crimes have to have big motives?
Loved the setting and characters. I could easily get addicted to Dorte's stories.

Review by: Linda Rae Blair on Feb. 10, 2012 :
Short, Quirky, Great Read!

Dorte's writing style is so unique! If you like quirky characters with even quirkier names, a mystery you'll never figure out on your own, all provided in a minimum of words and greatest of skill--well you cannot go wrong with this one, or for that matter, any of her novels. Here she has used some of her characters from "The Cosy Knave" and given them another mystery to solve. Rhapsody Gershwin and Officer Penrose are, once again, left to their own devices to solve a murder (no overtime will be paid to solve crime in this village this weekend). So, they do just as instructed and solve it! No spoiler here--what else would Rhapsody and Penrose do?
