If you’re looking for something a little different, specifically a thriller NOT set in Scandinavia, then this Japanese best seller is worth a try. When Yasuko’s violent ex turns up at her apartment, she and her daughter end up killing him in a fight for their lives. Desperate, they accept the help of Yasuko’s next door neighbour, Mr Isihgami, a quiet, brilliant maths teacher who is in love with Yasuko. He makes the body disappear and it appears everyone has got away with murder. But as the police investigate and the story unfolds, nothing is as it seems and this is one of the few murder mysteries where the ending comes out of left field. The translation can be a little clunky but if you love your police procedurals, you’ll love The Devotion of Suspect X.
