There s this concept in fantasy writing world building Sci fi too It s pretty self explanatory because these books are not taking place in our universe it s up to the author to give us all the details to paint the picture provide shading in just the right places ensure we can tell what we are supposed to be looking at Economics politics interpersonal relations language gender roles humor This can be done well emphasizing just here and embellishing just there so the empty spaces also fill in the canvas Or it can be done poorly cramming in everything and we wind up with Where s Waldo and no one can figure out what the hell is happening Martin Cruz Smith is a really good world builder I mean he s writing about a real place but it doesn t exist any as such so I don t think that makes his job any easier Granted I have no idea what life was like in the Soviet Union in the early 80s and maybe the author didn t either But this is a fully realized world a backdrop that adds a great deal of freshness to yet another twisty detective thriller Part of the reason Stieg Larsson books created a new genre in the US well sort of the Swedish location specific murder genre are his weirdly obsessive descriptions of the Swedish landscape which gave readers something to focus on while Lisbeth was shopping at Ikea Here the sense of place is as compelling with weather as miserable the plot and writing a lot betterArkady Renko is a great character He knows how the system works sees no problem in losing the files on a few murder cases to keep the crime rate low and the politicians happy Yet he refuses to follow the party line pisses off the wrong people follows leads when he has no vested interest not even a strong desire for justice He just wants to be right He is assigned to the case of three corpses found shot and mutilated in a famous park and it seems like he keeps working on it for no reason other than the fact that it violated his personal sensibility that it s uncouth to murder people in a place where people come to relax commiserate with friends maybe do some ice skatingThe plot is pretty complicated as you d expect but the trappings you ll see what I did there in a second are pretty fun Without giving too much away everything ties into the international fur trade and if Martin Cruz Smith is right it s a bloody business This is a Russian sableThis is a Russian sable fur coatimage error
