Item description for La primera detective de Botsuana by Alexander McCall Smith...

En Botswana nunca haba habido una mujer detective... hasta el da en que Mma Ramotswe decide abrir su pequea oficina al pie del monte Kgale, cerca del desierto de Kalahari. Le basta con unas sillas, dos mesas, un telfono y una secretaria... adems de unas tazas para invitar a los clientes a tomar un t. Qu otra cosa se requiere para resolver misterios? Al fin y al cabo, no se han dedicado siempre las mujeres a escuchar y a intentar solucionar los problemas de los dems frente a una taza de t?

Mma Ramotswe no es una irnica intelectual ni una aguerrida ex polica, sino una mujer alegre y rolliza, cargada de sentido comn y con un firme deseo de ayudar al prjimo. En su opinin, muchas personas no saben distinguir el bien del mal, y hay que ensearles la diferencia. Hurfana, superviviente de un matrimonio infernal y madre por slo cinco das, esta Miss Marple africana sabe reconocer el dolor ajeno, y quiere contribuir a aliviarlo. Sus mtodos son tal vez poco ortodoxos, pero tambin lo son sus casos, as como sus atribulados clientes.

Con sus acertadas descripciones y sus sensatos comentarios, la protagonista de esta novela nos introduce paso a paso en la realidad de un pas lejano y desconocido, donde la teconologa convive con las tradiciones mgicas, y donde resulta ms fcil conocer las noticias de boca de las vecinas que leyendo la prensa.
