In The Final Solution, Michael Chabon has condensed his boundless vision to craft a short, suspenseful tale of compassion and wit that re-imagines the classic nineteenth-century detective story.

In deep retirement in the English countryside, an eighty-nine-year-old man, vaguely recollected by locals as a once-famous detective, is more concerned with his beekeeping than with his fellow man. Into his life wanders Linus Steinman, nine years old and mute, who has escaped from Nazi Germany with his sole companion: an African gray parrot. What is the meaning of the mysterious strings of German numbers the bird spews out -- a top-secret SS code? The keys to a series of Swiss bank accounts perhaps? Or something more sinister? Is the solution to this last case -- the real explanation of the mysterious boy and his parrot -- beyond even the reach of the once-famed sleuth? Subtle revelations lead the reader to a wrenching resolution.

This brilliant homage is the work of a master storyteller at the height of his powers.

Performed by Michael York

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Intriguing This is an excellent novel that tells a fantastic detective story. The name of the main detective is never given he is always called the old man but who he is is easy enough to figure out, you could even say it is elementary. The novel is great quick read and you'll have no idea who did it until the very end.
