The professor has some adventures outside of Regensburg, which is a relief, the office politics were winding down in Germany. I've read all 3 books, and I think this is the best one, although I am too much like the good Professor Doctor to really enjoy this series fully.
"I am truly sorry, Professor von Igelfeld," she said. "This is no way for a country to treat a distinguished visitor. Shooting a visitor is the height, the absolute height, of impoliteness."
Silly but entertaining novel about a pompous professor and his endless search for the respect he deserves. Although it started out a bit slow, things picked up once he got to Colombia, and I loved the ending.
Book 3 in the series about Professor Dr. Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld of the Institute of Romance Philology. This is one of the funniest books yet. I don't know how (the author) Alexander McCall Smith comes up with these stories!!!
Professor Dr. Moritz-Maria von Iglefeld finds himself in more situations in this third installment of the Portugese Irregular Verbs series. With dry wit and subtle humor, Alexander McCall Smith guides von Iglefeld through some interesting scenarios abroad and in the continuing battle with his nemesis, Unterhalser. A thoroughly enjoyable listen!
