Keeping watch under the windows of the Paris flat belonging to a politician's nephew, Louis Kehlweiler catches sight of something odd on the pavement. A small white object, surrounded by the excrement of local dogs. A piece of bone. Human bone, in fact. Naturally, when Kehlweiler takes his find to the nearest police station, he faces ridicule. But the tiny fragment obsesses him so much that he stops shadowing suspicious characters in Paris and follows the trail to the tiny Breton fishing village of Port-Nicolas.

I find the writing style rambling and not always compelling. Nevertheless this author has interesting plots and can be a fast read and fun peek into crime solving in France.

Fred Vargas is certainly one of the very best mystery/crime fiction writers out there. Obviously the four International Dagger Award are a good clue but the books can be difficult to find in this country. I find that the translation is excellent and that the author's background as an archeologist often provides interesting backdrop to the stories. Dog will have his day is very good but I did not find the novel up to her (very highest at that) usual standard.
