The Small Boat of Great Sorrows by Dan Fesperman

In Dan Fespermans highly praisedLie in the Dark(A quite astonishing first novelIan Rankin), we met Vlado Petric, a homicide detective in Sarajevo, a war-torn place where life itself had little worth. Now, five years later, Petric has escaped to join his wife and daughter in Berlin, and is scratching out a meager but stable existence at a construction site. So when hes recruited by Calvin Pinean enigmatic American investigator for the war crimes tribunal at The Hagueto join a search mission back in the ruins of his homeland, he finds it hard to resist. Theyre seeking a general responsible for the massacre at Srebrenica, but Petric is also being offered as bait to lure another suspect whose activities in World War II make the current generation of killers look like amateurs. Getting hotter on a trail that eventually leads across Europe, Petric soon finds that great political powers make unsavory alliances, and that investigating the mysteries of the past can be as dangerous as navigating the war zones of the present. A gripping novel about legends and lies, about great deceptions and personal truths,The Small Boat of Great Sorrowsis a galvanizing detective novel in a vein that brilliantly transcends the genre.
