Having read The Coroner's Lunch, I was so looking forward to this one (have yet to locate 33 teeth) and it did not fail to please. Dr Siri is more laid back in this 3rd instalment probably because he has come to terms with his ability to host the spirits. The Government also seems to have become less of an obstacle ; Siri's only real opponent in this is Judge Haeng, whom he despatches with ease. I preferred though the more conniving Siri of the last book as he worked the system to his advantage. Here, he has to contend with a wily Cuban doctor who really doesn't come into his own until the last chapters.
I love this series of books; they are witty and unusual combining the supernatural with good old fashioned detective work..not unlike the Ladies Detective Agency series.

Thank you jules5 for this book and all tea. I feel lika a big winner.
Backside: The surprise appearance of a mummified arm protruding from a concrete path leading to the President's new mansion has caused an understandable degree of embarrassment. Dr Siri finds himself despatched to discretely disinter the body attached to the arm, identify it and determine the cause of death.
Reluctant national coroner, confused psychic and disheartened communist, Dr Siri Paiboun, gets on down in this third instalment of the wittiest and most inventive crime series in print.
Edit: My opinion: A very interesting book. I appreciated the atmosphere of Laos and all mysterious things that happened. A main figure I loved to followed in the story was Geung, a young man with Down's syndrome. I think this book was a good reading.
