Alexander McCall Smith's Scotland Street occupies a busy, bohemian corner of Edinburgh's New Town, where the old haute bourgeoisie finds itself having to rub shoulders with students, poets and portraitists. And number 44 has more than its fair share of the street's eccentrics and failures.

When Pat - on her second gap year and a source of some worry to her parents - is accepted as a new tenant at number 44, she isn't quite sure how long she'll last. Her flatmate Bruce, a rugby-playing chartered surveyor, is impossibly narcissistic, carelessly philandering and infuriatingly handsome. Downstairs lives the gloriously pretentious Irene, whose precocious five-year-old is in therapy efter setting fire to his father's copy of the Guardian. And then there is the shrewd, intellectual Domenica MacDonald, mysteriously employed a sharp-eyed observer of the house's activities in her spare time...

Utdrag ur boken:
Dr Fairbairn smiled. "No Bertie. I'd never do that. Analysts don't smack people."
"Not even if they deserve it?" asked Bertie.

The book is of type "Emmerdale Farm" (In Sweden : Hem till gården). It is a low-key story and it doesn't happen very much. In the beginning I found it very slow but gradually as I was captivated by the human types, I began to find it interesting.
Small humorous depictions cheer up. An example of this is when the young man "borrows" a pair of underpants, he had kilt, and is discovered by the host in the laundry room.
This reminds me of the picture of the current Queen of England surrounded by seated men in kilts. The man closest to her haven't arranged his kilt so his penis is shown up. So I can well understand that a young man who does not want to be naked under the kilt feel anxious.

So in summary, I think this was a charming book.
