Ann Cleeves, White Nights

6548062White Nights is the second of Ann Cleeves series of mysteries set in the Shetland Isles and starring Jimmy Perez, bearer of an unlikely name and vast amounts of knowledge of the locals. Although the mysteries are a bit underwhelming, I really like the atmostphere that Cleeves manages to create; the first novel of the series, Raven Black, took place in the depth of winter; this second one is set in midsummer when the sun hardly sets, and everyone gets a little bit crazy.
