Dans ce recueil de trois histoires, on retrouve Adamsberg et ses méandres alors qu'il pratique la promenade pour résoudre ses affaires. Ce que j'ai bien aimé, c'est que dans deux des trois nouvelles, ce n'est pas lui qui les résous mais des témoins. L'art d'Adamsberg tient donc à savoir comment faire parler les témoins, de les retrouver là où ils - et le lecteur - s'y attendent le moins pour qu'ils se dévoilent un peu malgré eux.
Charmant et original, ce recueil se lit très vite.

I have finished Seeking Whom He May Devour by Fred Vargas. It is a very good murder mystery with good character development and more information regarding the operation of the French police service.

There is on issue I would have with the translation. One character kept referring to Commissaire Adamsberg as "old chap". This is a very English phrase and is very out of place in the mouth of a Frenchman. It grated every time I read it. Apart from that the translation was great.

Would I read more novels by this author?
Yes!

Would I recommend this book?
Yes.

To whom would I recommend it?
To anyone interested in murder mysteries. It contains no gore or extreme violence so if very accessible to all.

Did this book inspire me to do anything?
Yes. To continue reading books by Fred Vargas.

Book abandoned. I like Fred Vargas and the quirky Commissaire Adamsberg, but this story was just too far-fetched, the translation too clunky for me to persist past the first 50 pages.
