    1. Set in Tallinn in 1419 this is a crime mystery novel with the highlight very much being the period and the setting This is the second book in the Apothecary Melchior series, but it really is not necessary to have read the first one to enjoy this It is therefore something quite different, and hugely enjoyable for it Tallinn in the early 1400s is an important and lively city From Hargla s careful research its inhabitants work hard and enjoy a busy social life that tends to involve beer In the firs [...]
