Cykelmysteriet The Bicycle Mystery

The JerryMaya Detective Agency #22

Who is the rightful winner of Valleby’s bicycle race? It seems that all the contestants are very likely to have cheated. The first person to cross the finishing line at the big square in Valleby is to win a gold medal. And 10.000 kronor. All contestants seem to be sure of winning when being interviewed before the competition, and during the race they don’t seem to fear any means to win. But how badly are you allowed to behave to get to the finishing line first? The police chief doesn’t follow and gets quite confused before the distribution of the prize. Luckily Jerry and Maya are there. Jerry as one of the contestants and Maja as a tough trainer and observer. Together they put two and two together…
