Bad is the new good.

In the not too distant future the European Union enacts its most far reaching human rights legislation ever. The incompetent have been persecuted for too long. After all it's not their fault they can't do it right, is it? So it is made illegal to sack or otherwise discriminate against anyone for being incompetent.

And now a murder has been committed and our possibly incompetent detective must find out who the murderer is. As long as he can find directions to get him through the mean streets.

Customer Reviews of Incompetence


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who says you can't judge a book by it's cover? This book caught my attention by the end of the title. Grant paints a gritty picture of the future, where somehow the EU (European Union) has made it illegal to deny someone employment based on race, religion, sex, or SKILL. For a detective who's actually good at his job, this makes it very difficult to catch a killer, who may be even better at HIS job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What else did you expect? A hilarious novel from one of the minds behind the television show "Red Dwarf". Reminicent of Douglas Adams' "Dirk Gentley" novels. (A corpulent detective who puts his pain threshold to the limit) If you find that quirky English humour tickles your funnybone, this is the book for you!
