Lazy Sunday Service

Finished reading Headbanger by Hugo Hamilton on Friday. It's an interesting piece of crime fiction because it's an in-depth character study of a beat copper, one that is slowly going mad at how the system fails to adequate deal with everyday criminal acts and administer justice. Most crime novels that have police lead characters tend to focus on elite team members or high profile crimes. I'd be interested in recommendations of other stories that focus more on the routine side of policing. Suggestions?
