The novel by Croatian writer Nada Ga?i? (b. 1950) Peaceful Street, Lined with Trees is a detective story of a series of mystery murders committed within two hot weeks in August 2003 in a quiet, tree-lined street in Zagreb. The novel aptly combines diary entries, dream interpretation, police reports, texting, drawings etc., which enable the reader to follow the protagonists’ lives, their thoughts, actions, their subconscious, and try to untangle the crimes. The author depicted the social problems and ills of contemporary society (and not only Croatian) with humour and ironic detachment, which only enhance the reality effect in the novel.
