Detektivmysteriet The Detective Mystery

The JerryMaya Detective Agency #29

A new detective is in town! When a valuable picture is stolen from Valleby’s museum, star detective Torkel Nööt turns up out of nowhere. He seems to know all about Valleby and his detective skills seem even sharper than Jerry and Maya’s! Soon Torkel Nööt has identified the picture thief and become a favorite with everyone. Even the police chief is convinced by his self-assured approach and, muttering to himself, he arrests the suspect. The only ones who don’t allow themselves to be charmed are Jerry and Maya. Are they just jealous or is there something fishy about the star detective? Why does he know so much about the Valleby residents’ lives? And how can he solve the case so incredibly quickly? But everything does seem to be going so smoothly…
