Training Day, by Andrei Kivinov
This new noir volume by Akashic gets started, logically enough, with a story about a policeman's first day on the job. It rambles a bit but eventually focuses on a mystery of sorts involving the apparently supernatural ability of a corpse to be in two places at once.
It's not a detective story per se, the cops aren't trying to solve the puzzle. But in the course of their duties they do. An interesting glance at what a day in the life of a St. Petersburg cop might look like.
