Praise for The Corpse on the Dike

"A crisp, cheery follow-up to Tumbleweed."
—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Janwillem van de Wetering

"Mr. Van de Wetering's policemen are just as likely to . . . marvel at human nature as to shoot it down."
The New York Times

“[A] unique atmospheric mix of police procedure, quirky characters, and Zen outlook.” Boston Globe

"[Van de Wetering] is doing what Simenon might have done if Albert Camus had sublet his skull."
—John Leonard

    I enjoyed the book. What detracts from a higher rating is that the text is rife with typos. Whoever prepared this book for Nook simply scanned the pages without employing a proofreader. The most frequent typo was "die" for the string "the". These mistakes do not appear in the original paper version. Kindle is not offering their version of the book because "This book is currently unavailable because there is an issue with its description, content, or formatting." Emphasis on the formatting if the Nook version is any indication. I plan to wait for Kindle to have the series available, repurchasing books two and three. B&N is not getting my money on titles which will likely cost equal to or greater than Kindle.
