BW32: Whodunit bookology - Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg

Our August Whodunit Bookology detective is French police detective Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg. We are introduced our detective of the month in The Chalk Circle Man, the first book in a nine book series. He has recently been promoted to Commissaire in the 5th arrondissement in Paris and is unorthodox when it comes to solving crimes.

The character was created by Fred Vargas aka Frédérique Audoin-Rouzeau. Ms. Vargas,  born June 7, 1957,  is a French historian and archaeologist as well as a writer. Her studies of the black death and the bubonic plague is considered definitive in research studies completed on the subject which resulted in Les chemins de la peste : Le rat la puce et l'homme (Pest Roads), published in 2003.

There are a number of ways to complete the bookology challenge, including but not limited, to the suggestions below:

Read the first book in the series.

Read one book per letter in the character's first or last name.

Read one book per letter in the author's first or last name.

If you're really ambitious, one book per letter in the character's first and last name.

Follow in a character's footsteps and read a book set in the country or time period of the character.

Be sure to check out Vargas's other series The Three Evangelists as well.
