The Man With the Silver Saab
Dog. A dog named Martin achieve pride of place in a novel titled, The Man with the Silver Saab, the third installment in the series by Alexander McCall Smith featuring Malmö Detective Ulf Varg. As Martin has lost his hearing, Varg has taught him lip reading, and Varg proudly thinks this skill is unique in Sweden. In the perpetual contest between dog and squirrel, Martin lost a battle as the squirrel bit his nose, which the vet reattaches upside down. Love for dogs changes the tone of an expected disciplinary meeting with Varg’s superior. In the background the Department of Sensitive Crime that Varg leads solves an interesting case. Along the way, we chuckle on most pages, and enjoy the characters that Smith develops in such an endearing way.
