“One of the cleverest — and most thoroughly enjoyable — mysteries that I’ve read in a long time. Wolf Haas is the real deal, and his arrival on the American book scene is long overdue.” —Carl Hiaasen, New York Times bestselling author of Skinny Dip
“Simon Brenner, the hero of Wolf Haas’ marvelous series of crime thrillers, is a wildly likable and original character—a delightful and unexpected hero to show up in this noble and enduring genre.” —Jonathan Demme, Oscar-winning director of The Silence of the Lambs
“A must for crime fiction lovers with a sense of humor: In Simon Brenner, Wolf Haas has created a protagonist so real and believable that I sometimes wanted to tap him on the shoulder and point him in the right direction!” —Andrey Kurkov, author of Death and the Penguin
“A wry sense of humor … American readers will look forward to seeing more of Simon Brenner.” —Publishers Weekly

The narrative voice is what carries the Wolf Haas books. The detective, Brenner, is cynical, the crimes are political and convoluted, but the narrator is endlessly hilarious, with a voice so strong you'll find yourself mimicking its style unconsciously. Also, this book put me off of fried chicken for a good while.
