"Another dark and funny crime novel by the author Carl Hiaasen has called "the real deal." The fourth Brenner book finds the detective in Vienna, uncovering corruption in the ambulance business...and just barely escaping with his life in the process. Disillusioned ex-cop Simon Brenner decides to take a job as an ambulance driver, in the hopes of getting away from the drudgery and corruption in the police force, and finding a "worthy profession." But the ambulance service he goes to work for has a problem--their major competitors are beating them to every pick-up, somehow listening on their radio communications. And Brenner can't help being just a little bit curious about this chance to do some detective work. Things turn considerably darker as he digs deeper, and it turns out that ambulance services are, literally, a cutthroat business. And there are people who don't want their business exposed. Brenner races around summertime Vienna, lights flashing, siren blaring, in a desperate attempt to fit it all together before there's another dead body on his conscience. A caustic and hilarious new installment in the Brenner series"--

"The prosaic romantic hero, Vittorio Kowalski possesses a strange talent: he can remember the weather for every day of the past fifteen years in a certain village in the Austrian Alps. When he is invited to display this uncanny ability on a TV game show, he uncovers memories of his unrequited love for an Austrian girl named Anni, the accident that led to her father's death, and his own near-fatal experience at the place of their secret childhood meetings. As the interview progresses, intricacies of the children's parents' stories unfold to reveal a startling erotic entanglement. On the very last day of the fictional transcription, we learn almost everything else."--Jacket
Resurrection by Wolf Haas( Book )

59 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the corpses of an American couple are found frozen to death on a ski lift in a pristine Alpine village, Brenner is called in to investigate, in his first case as a P.I. When Inspector Simon Brenner leaves the police force, he's looking forward to some peace and quiet, and the lovely Alpine village of Zell seems like just the place. That is, until the corpses of an American couple are found frozen on a ski lift, and Brenner, doing some part time work for an insurance company, is called in to investigate the matter. It turns out that the victims have relatives in the area, and the crime--if it is a crime--seems like it could be a family affair. Except the prime suspect has a solid alibi and no one in picture-perfect Zell is talking. So Brenner, in his inimitable style, draws out all the village's characters--the longtime residents, the resort staff and guests--and uncovers the dirty doings that lurk underneath the pristine snow...and family secrets long buried. This first book sets up the totally unique, quirky narrative voice that runs throughout the series and introduces the reluctant, yet brilliant, Detective Brenner,in a plot with as many twists and turns as a Double Black Diamond"--

Verteidigung der Missionarsstellung : Roman by Wolf Haas( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and Polish and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ist die Missionarsstellung pervers? Oder transzendental? Warum können normale Sachen ausgefallene Wörter haben? Benjamin Lee Baumgartner denkt nach. Am liebsten gemeinsam mit der hübschen Holländerin vom Burger-Stand: "Ich finde die Missionarsstellung meistens am besten. Das andere ist auch gut, aber überschätzt."Platz 2 der SWR-Bestenliste im September 2012. "In "Verteidigung der Missionarsstellung" wagt sich Haas erneut auf brennerfreies Terrain, und er tut dies erneut mit Witz und Bravour... Kaum ein anderer Gegenwartsautor spielt so frech und gekonnt mit den Möglichkeiten des Romans, und allein deshalb ist es unerklärlich, warum die Jury des Deutschen Buchpreis dieses Buch ignoriert hat" (dradio.de)
