I’d never heard of this popular murder mystery series set in rural France.
This 1st novel in a long series was first published 2008.
Benoît “Bruno” Courrèges, a passionate cook and former soldier who was wounded on a peacekeeping mission in the Balkans, who never carries his official gun and who has “long since lost the key to his handcuffs” is the village policeman in sleepy St. Denis.
Like Three Pines in Quebec, astonishing things keep happening in this tiny rural village.
The book is an easy read. Bruno an entertaining and enjoyable character.
I’ll try more in the series.
