Love the middle-aged, morose, driven crime novel detective.

Summer reading. Crime novels. Joe Nesbo this year. His Harry Hole fits the crime detective trope of the single, middle-aged, morose, driven misfit too!

Here are just a few of my favourites in this category: Morse, Lewis, Bosch, Wallander, Rebus, Perez, DCI Banks,  Frost,  Foyle,  Cannon,  Montalbano, Jesse  Stone,  George  Gently, Longmire.

Readers keep sending more names. Add Vera (fits the bill despite being female) and Jack Irish.
