The Name of the Rose
Medieval monks running around killing each other and hiding in the abbey's labyrinthine library. Can Inspector Rebus and Shiv-awn, sorry, Brother William and Novice Adso, solve the crime?
Pretty good, but absolutely packed with bits that I was compelled to skip, not speaking Latin, Greek or Arabic, and not finding medieval religious politics very interesting either.
