An unscrupulous cab driver. The killer's own frightened wife. Most troublesome of all, an outspoken dissident, watched closely by the KGB, whose trial had been set for the very next day.
A heavy iron-headed hammer. A rusty, antiquated sickle. And a broken vodka bottle.
Tkach, who seduces suspects into confessing with his apparent innocence. Karpo, a bit of a Tartar, a bit of a vampire, a stolid saint of the Soviet faith. And Rostnikov, their leader, who almost wishes the investigation won't turn out to be too simple. Before the case is over, Rostnikov will remember that wish and regret it.

Big historical fiction fan and mysteries/espionage addict. Favourite author at the moment, Jo Nesbo.
Mostly slow and plodding, characters not really developed, started as a good idea but somewhere along the way author seems to have lost the plot...so to speak.
