Dear Guillermo Martínez:

Were you aware, when you wrote Crímenes imperceptibles, that British police officers - even detectives - only carry firearms under very special circumstances, and that those circumstances do not include surveillance or off-duty tasks like going to concerts with their family?

Didn't think so.

Other than that little error, I really liked the book.

It was like that in Denmark a few years ago, and I felt a bit sad when I realized our days of innocense were over. Now they always carry arms.

Dorte, it's still like that in Iceland. Only members of the special squad that deals with armed drunkards and potential hostage situations are allowed to bear firearms. As far as I know they have never fired a single shot except during exercises.
