Newcomer is part of a series with detective Kaga by the Japanese master of thrillers, Keigo Higashino, often compared to Stieg Larsson, but, according to his own words, he is more inspired by his compatriots likeEdogawa Ranpo czy Seichō Matsumoto.

This time, Higashino takes us to a district that has the atmosphere of the old Edo – mosft og the novel takes place among the many traditional shops. Every business has its own secrets which detective Kaga must uncover in order to discover who is behind the mysterious murder of 45-year-old Mineko Mitsui. The plot is a bit like a tangled rope and undoing the knots slowly brings us closer to the answer. In order to find the culprit, the detective must first understand the victim’s relationship with the environment, andthis is Kaga’s great stength – he wins the the sympathy of those he interrogates by offering them gifts and emotional support, which is why he is often considered a weirdo. However, he also possesed a great skills of observation and deduction, which enabes him to solve the case.
