This is the second book in Australian author Marshall Browne's series about an Italian detective. The first, The Wooden Leg of Inspector Anders, won the Ned Kelly award for Best First Crime Novel in 2000, and has been shortlisted for the LA Times Crime Novel of 2001.
In this new book, Anders is sent to Strasburg to help the French police fight terrorist attacks on executives involved in big corporate mergers across Europe. Anders finds himself torn between his own opposition to globalisation and his duty as an increasingly reluctant policeman.
Whoops - sorry, so far I've not added any other entries about this book to the website (yet).
