About the book


In this frightening and surprising novel, the eccentric, wayward genius of Commissaire Adamsberg is pitted against the deep-rooted mysteries of one Alpine village's history and a very present problem: wolves.

Disturbing things have been happening up in the French mountains; more and more sheep are being found with their throats torn out. The evidence points to a wolf of unnatural size and strength. However Suzanne Rosselin thinks it is the work of a werewolf.

Then Suzanne is found slaughtered in the same manner. Her friend Camille attempts, with Suzanne's son Soliman and her shepherd, Watchee, to find out who, or what, is responsible and they call on Commissaire Adamsberg for help.

Winner of the CWA International Dagger for Wash This Blood Clean From My Hand.

What the critics say

Commissaire Adamsberg must be the most engaging French detective since Maigret
- Scotland on Sunday

Poetic, offbeat and gently addictive. Her prose has an unusual deftness, a wry humour. A unique voice
- Guardian

An intriguing, idiosyncratic voice
- Time Out

An absolute masterwork. One of the best books of the year
- Toronto Globe & Mail

A work of real class - its characters sharp, multi-faceted and original, and its style crisply intelligent
- Herald
