le carré de la vengeance

Le carré de la vengeance - Pieter Aspe First one in the series of this very popular Belgium author. The characters are interesting. The politics, the class differences are well done. The female character, Hannelore, who works for the justice department, in not just there to be "the girl", one of the policeman is gay but it's no big deal, the lead character is a bit more cliché but I put that on the first novel syndrome Mary Sue. The plot, one of the most important and rich family of Bruges is really having a bad week, a bad month. First a robbery that isn't really a robbery, a kidnapping, a demand for ransom that is a bit strange. A quick and interesting read.
