Book Review - Babylon by Camilla Ceder

More Scandinavian mystery fiction. A respected academic is murdered with her student lover. The police must sift through a large cast of potential murderers including her ex-husband, the student's jealous partner and two thieves after ancient antiquities. Inspector Christian Tell must settle his own heart whilst solving the case and dealing with a new boss. International trade in stolen artefacts provides a well researched backdrop for this very good mystery. I'm still in love with the Scandinavians! I was interested to see a quote from Melanie Klein in the forepapers. I must admit I had assumed that Alexander McCall smith had made her up (see his Scotland St series) --- I should have known better! Wendy
