Searching for a KIller, Searching for Meaning

This is a mystery where the mystery takes a back seat to a deeper search for meaning. An asteroid is going to destroy the Earth in six months, and society is falling apart, as people drop out, some to do the things they always wanted to do, and some to escape the suspense by killing themselves. But one young police detective is still on the job, investigating one suicide among thousands that seems a bit wrong to him. If you're looking for a mystery, this is merely average. If you're looking for a meditation on the ways that people find meaning in life, or fail to find meaning in life, when all hope is gone, this is pretty good. This is the first book of a trilogy, but stands pretty well on it's own.
