Detective Gordon: A Case for Paddy

Ulf Nilsson, illustrated by Gitte Spee

Paddy is happy and content with her life as a policewoman, but Gordon suddenly starts to wonder where she came from and where her mum lived. The terrible thing is that Paddy doesn’t know. She’s forgotten everything. Luckily Gordon knows what to do to restore Paddy’s
memory: A cup of tea, a comfy armchair, a candle and a pen and some paper are all that’s needed. And then Paddy starts writing poems about her mum. And just as Gordon predicted: Paddy’s memory slowly starts coming back. Something terrible had happened! The fox’s sharp claws. Everyone running in different directions. Waterfalls and pine trees.
It could only mean one thing: the fox must be involved and it took place at Cave Island. The two officers immediately set off to investigate. Could Paddy’s mum be there? A friendly and philosophical detective story for youngsters.

The book has been chosen for the prestigious international USBBY (The United States Board on Books for Young People) 2019 list.
