The Oxford Murders

Want to read a murder mystery with a mathematical twist? "The Oxford Murders", by Guillermo Martinez is a nice one (apparently, the movie is coming out next year).

A series of murders is happening in Oxford, tangentially involving people in the math department there. Supposedly, there is a mathematical series underlying the murders, and a couple of mathematicians are trying to figure it out before the series goes too far. A very nice and rather quick read.
