Synopsis

Lovable Scottish constable Hamish Macbeth -- who would rather be fishing than detecting -- must root out another criminal in his thirteenth charmingly clever case.

As the small village of Lochdubh has no dentist, locals travel 20 miles to Frederick Gilchrist's dental surgery in the town of Braikie. Although Lochdubh's one-man police force, Hamish Macbeth, prefers the more modern, painless procedures practiced by dentists in the city of Inverness, a blinding toothache one morning convinces him to give Gilchrist a try. Upon arriving, Hamish finds the dentist dead on the floor, a victim of nicotine poisoning. Discovering that the deceased was a non-smoker, Hamish must put his own toothache on ice -- to extract a murderer on the loose.

Death of a Dentist
Average rating
4 / 5
Another fine Hamish mystery.
May 19th, 2014
Hamish Macbeth has a feeling that something's just not right, and again he manages to infuriate DCI Blair while solving two murders and a robbery. No midges - those annoying Scottish mosquitoes - this time, but all the regular cast make an appearance, and the mystery remains gripping until the end.
