In the predawn gloom of a February day in 1994, two thieves entered the National Gallery in Oslo and snatched one of the world's most famous paintings, Edvard Munch's The Scream. Baffled and humiliated, the Norwegian police called on the world's greatest art detective, a half-English, half-American undercover cop named Charley Hill. In this rollicking narrative, author Dolnick takes us inside the art underworld. The trail leads high and low, from titled aristocrats to thick-necked thugs. We meet Munch, too, a haunted misfit who spends his evenings drinking in the Black Piglet Café and his nights feverishly trying to capture in paint the visions in his head. The most compelling character of all is Charley Hill, a complicated mix of brilliance, foolhardiness, and charm.--From publisher description.… (mere)

Interesting. Main character is fun. ( )

#2020unreadshelfproject. A great read. A intimate look into the world of art theft and long road to recovering the works. So much interesting information packed into the book. Charley Hill has a truly great job. A lot of different thefts and recoveries are mentioned which keeps the book moving. I skimmed over a few parts, but the majority held my interest. ( )

A very good account of the theft of Munch's "The Scream" in 1994, which branches out into an exploration of art heists and a semi-biography of investigator Charley Hill. Well worth a read. ( )
