|Summary, etc.:||"The King Arthur Case is the seventh installment of Jean-Luc Bannalec's bestselling mystery series. The forest of Broceliande, with its picturesque lakes and castles, is the last remnant of the fairy kingdom, if Breton lore is to be believed. Innumerable legends spanning thousands of years are set here, including the tale of King Arthur and the Round Table. It seems to be an appropriate destination for Commissaire Dupin and his team to take a late summer field trip. But when the body of a historian turns up, Dupin is called upon to investigate in the brutal murder case. Before too long, there are more victims. What knowledge do the assembled scientists have about the most recent archaeological digs in the area? Where do they stand on the controversial decision to turn parts of the forest into an amusement park? And why is no one willing to talk? Even Nolwenn, Dupin's unshakeable assistant, is concerned. And that means trouble. Mysterious, ingenious, and suspenseful: Dupin's seventh case takes him and his team into the very heart of Brittany"--|
In English, translated from the German.

The famous Brocéliande Forest in Brittany, stomping ground for Merlin, Morgan le Fay, Lancelot, and other characters and sites in Arthurian legend, forms the backdrop for this seventh Commissaire Georges Dupin mystery. Dupin, happily exiled from the Paris Police to the Atlantic seacoast town of Concarneau, takes a sort of learning expedition/bonding trip with his coworkers to the inland forest, and no sooner does the group arrive at a large manor house than Dupin stumbles over a noted Arthurian expert's newly murdered body. That same day, another Arthurian scholar is found stabbed to death in the forest. Dupin (who is anathema to the head of the Paris Police) is, in a rather absurd plot point, appointed to head the investigation. The backstory to the murders and attempted murders centers on the conflict among the Arthurian scholars, gathered for a conference, over whether King Arthur was legendary or actual, given new evidence unearthed at archaeological digs in the UK and France. The plot is not entirely believable, but the fascinating background carries the day. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
