I read Bangkok 8 when it came out. Loved it. What made it particularly interesting for me is that the protagonist is a Buddhist and incorporates his beliefs into everything he does, including his job.

************ The protagonist goes into a long spiel about the police departments being so busy because, being Buddhists, they are bound to being compassionate and kind. Although he takes his religion seriously, there is a disclaimer, "No one doubts that I have sworn to avenge Pichai's death. There are limits to Buddhism when honor is at stake."
