The Eskimo Solution
By Pascal Garnier
Translated by Emily Boyce and Jane Aitken.
A crime author writing the story of Louis, who decides to do his cash-strapped friends a favour by hastening their parents' demise, finds reality and fiction overlapping during a stay in Normandy. Pascal Garnier combines the style of Simenon, the insight of Camus with a wit that is all his own.
