I mistakenly registered this book twice - groan - and have no idea how to fix that.
Here is my review:

One guy is a cop trying to follow leads, another is a guy looking for a flat. Through a series of incomprehensible phone calls, obscure orders and secret agent type travel arrangements we follow them both. There are many corpses, many more bottles of vodka, a hearse and an adopted tortoise. They are looking for a thumb and some money, Good luck! Same Russia, different shtick.
"It was all money, money, money today. Ideology was out."

I have a feeling it would have been much funnier if I was Ukrainian or Russian with the proper cultural understanding and if I had read it in the original language (Russian) that it was written in.
