Marilyn StasioFaithful as ever to the split-focus formula of the police procedural, Kaminsky leaves it to Rostnikov's colleagues to untangle an intricate smuggling network connecting Moscow, Kiev and Botswana.

While some people can and do go mad in such places, Devochka inspires Kaminsky's sleuth to new levels of irony.
