Police procedural in Scotland which is quite good and engaging

A Dark So Deadly - Stuart MacBride

Set in a fictional Scottish town, this police procedural novel is about a serial killer on the loose and a bunch of misfit policemen are on his trail. The case shows the seedier side of Scotland's poor and disaffected and the novel has scenes of many types of abuse. The main character, Callum McGregor, is well-developed as are those who work with him and are part of his life. The book also looks into McGregor's past and the fate of his family. Peppered with humour, this thriller will certainly please those readers into macabre but "light" mysteries. I didn't like the ending much but it does bring everything to a close. Easily read even if many scenes are quite disturbing. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
