For the first time, the books in the trilogy are now available all together and in print after appearing separately on Kindle (I have made some minor modifications). In The Girl with the Fish Tattoo, Morose is enlisted to help investigate a series of terrorist bombings which have led to anti-Muslim riots and a right-wing nationalist backlash. Everyone assumes a political explanation but Morose is less convinced. And just how does the sexy biker girl with the piranha tattoo fit in? The Girl who Swam with Sharks represents an exotic interlude from the political thriller style of the other two books and is more like a traditional whodunit. Morose travels to Thailand to rescue his older brother Endeavour who has been arrested and accused of helping his young Thai girlfriend murder her rich American husband. Finally, in The Girl who Cried Wolf, Morose is recalled from exile in Iceland to defuse the Croydon Missile Crisis. After refusing to cooperate with rendition and extradition, Uncle Kenny, who is seeking re-election as Prime Minister after four years in office, is threatened with rogue drone missiles by the American Ambassador. What should Kenny do with Julian St. James, the founder of the radical FidelNews.com website, who has leaked top secret US military documents and is accused of raping a student in Sweden? Also, can Morose solve the curious incident of the wolf which did not howl in the night? At least Morose is not alone and is ably assisted by his trusty sergeant, Louise, by the ambiguous founder of Manchester's No. 1 Transsexuals' Detective Agency, Eddie, and by the lovable Icelandic Criminology student, Dóra.
