Submitter: The eyeballs are particularly choice, I think.
Holly: <Snort!> The 12-year-old in me loves this title. I love the weird cover, too.
Seriously, though, these are popular mystery novels by a Dutch author. The detective, DeKok (which means “Cook”) apparently spells his name for people when he meets them. This series was made into a TV show, too, named for the author.
This was submitted by a public library in Illinois. I wonder if they have the other books in the series, if they have a large Dutch population in their town, and if I’m missing something because I haven’t heard of this author. Our patrons love a Scandinavian mystery, but I wasn’t aware that Dutch mysteries were popular too.
Lastly, what’s the goo on the bottom edge of the cover? Ewww.
