Glennkill : en fårdeckare by Leonie Swann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A fresh and wonderful new tale about sheep solving a mystery and finding a murderer.
One morning the shepherd lies dead in the field and his sheep are determined to find out what happened. Miss Marple, the most intelligent sheep starts here investigations and discovers with the help of the rest of the flock an old and deadly secret, that hovers over the village of Glennkill.
Are the sheep able to solve the mystery and let the dream come true they dreamed once with their shepherd? A dream about the apple trees and Europe…
Leonie Swan created a flock of lovely and memorable sheep, no matter you’re talking about Othello, Mopple the whale or Cloud the woolliest of them all, that are not just funny but also interesting to watch. The crime committed is logical planed and though the protagonists are some sheep the story is thrilling and readable just like a real crime-story, complete with all the twists and turns.
A wonderful read and something that I’m recommending to everyone, not just to fans of sheep or fans of crime-stories. A novel I’m going to read over and over again.
