Baa Baa Black Sheep

Siebzehn ist, seventeen is a book translated from German, Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann. It is an unusual mystery in that a shepherd's murder is narrated from the point of view of the sheep. The different sheep have very different characters, and are well-written. Perhaps there's a little too much self-introspection, but, hey, it's German. That's what we live for.
