An improbable tale, but still fun to read.

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!!!
