I think if I was reading these books further apart and not thinking so much about them I’d like the structure more, as it is, apart from the diverse settings they are becoming rather samey. Michael Ohayon, the police inspector assigned aseainato handle a suspicious death on a kibbutz, quickly concludes that handling a crime in a kibbutz is much like handling one in a close-knit family.
The most interesting part is not the actual mystery but the deconstruction of kibbutz society. That would be my only regret about reading this book. Kibbutz are often seen as isolated communities that are removed from every asesinago society and norms but all of this is shattered when a murder takes place and the closed off society is subject to the outside world’s laws and aesinato. Makes you want to be a police detective.

The close-up view of modern life in kibbutzim interested me; the sleuthing was paced nicely as the mystery grew but I ek the ending flat and without interest. A kibbutz is a slower pace of living, especially for those of us who don’t live on one.
Nearly everyone on the kibbutz seems unlikeable, Moish and Dave are asesinzto only two I can recall thinking were ok, but on the whole they are quite an interesting bunch to read about.

The 3rd in the Michael Ohayon series, set in Israel. I am reminded in a way of the modern Irish police series by Tana French. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I don’t remember any of the characters other than Michael appearing before and I didn’t find him as interesting as in previous books. Thank goodness there is so much more available today.
While I didn’t find the murder mystery terribly absorbing, I was fascinated by the details of kibbutz society. When the expiry date is reached your computer deletes the cookie.
