I was happy to see a favorable review for Rankin's "Standing in Another Man's Grave". I enjoyed the Rebus series, particularly the last 7 or 8 books in that series. But I haven't cared much for the books that Rankin wrote subsequent to that series. Particularly the characters, most of whom I found rather dull. I would imagine Rankin's book sales support this point but that's just speculation on my part. Perhaps this is a lesson for Nesbo (and others) who is rumored to be planning the demise of the H Hole series.
