If you don't read at least one of these, you really are missing out. It is rare for me to laugh out loud, even if a book is pretty funny. I found myself laughing and snorting and once in a while choking on my coffee.
Yet it's still respectable detective fiction. I think you'll enjoy Mr. Martin's books. I just wish I could write like he can.
Inspector Hobbes is not your average British police officer. For one thing, he's significantly larger, and stronger, than most police officers. Despite truly believing in his role as a protector of the citizens of his community, he has no respect at all for minutia such as traffic regulations. He would rather talk (or intimidate) a miscreant into going straight than arrest him, although he's certainly capable or either. Oh, and after a relatively short time (for Andy, that is), Andy comes to realize that Inspector Hobbes may very well not be human.
The three books each focus on individual cases, but for me that was of secondary importance at most. Each is also a marvelous collection of British humor and cheerful silliness. As a single example, from "Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Doggers"
"‘This old house belonged to the dowager Lady Payne,’ said Hobbes, chewing on a blade of grass. ‘I knew her well.’
‘What was she like?’
‘I don’t know,’ he said. ‘I never met her.’
‘Then how did you know her well?’
‘I used to draw water from it.'
