May Books 5) Doors Open, by Ian Rankin

'I spent a lot of time in the library.'
'Might explain why I don't remember you - I only went there the one time, took out The Godfather.'
'Was that for recreational purposes or for training?'
An excellent story of a raid on the National Gallery of Scotland, mostly from the point of view of the upper-middle class robbers who hire an underworld boss as an accomplice, and also that of the detective investigating them. I expected the tension to be about whether or not they would be caught - and knowing Rankin, either is possible - but in fact there was an excellent twist at the end when the real story is revealed.

I see there's a new Rebus novel out, coming in paperback next month. One for the list.
