Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel and Detective Inspector Peter Pascoe, Reginald Hill's Yorkshire detectives, are another entry in a long line of excellent British police procedurals, a subgenre that may more truly define the British mystery than any other. Dalziel is middle-aged, fat, and a realist to the point just short of being a cynic. He is shrewd and a top-notch investigator. Pascoe is younger, college-educated, and on the way up. He's married and has one child. The series is given a certain edge by the fact that, while the men work well together and respect each other's abilities, they are not bosom buddies in the manner of so many detective teams. While working in the procedural vein and giving us a close-up picture of life in Yorkshire from the cities to the small mining towns, Hill still frequently provides clues and solutions worthy of a classic puzzle.
