The famous Slueth of Satyajit Ray has long been on my TBR list since I saw the theatrical production of the Badshahi Angti. Ray’s vast knowledge of the Bengali landscape,his cinematic vision and certain influence of Doyle amd Christie have come together to produce a masterpiece yet unparalleled in Indian Crime/Mystery literature.I will attempt to read all 35 Novellas by Ray starring Felu and his constant companion Topshe as they set on to explore the depths of the criminal world.They will all be read in their original English translations.
