*** Malice by Keigo Higashino

I’m slightly obsessed with Higashino’s mysteries, and this one, Malice, is particularly successful in that we don’t know the identity of the murderer, and certainly not the motive, until the end of the book. In fact, the ever-patient investigating detective has to go back decades to fully understand the story, and in so doing expose his own decision to change careers from teacher to police detective.

Do all police detectives in all countries have this kind of unlimited timeframe and budget to get to the truth?
