Tempo ( visu )
2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"Dieser Film ist das Kinodebüt des österreichischen Oscar® Preisträgers Stefan Ruzowitzky. 1996 entstanden, im Wiener Jugendmilieu angesiedelt, flott und amüsant inszeniert. Ein Rave-Movie um einen knapp 18-jährigen Ausreißer, der sich als Fahrradbote verdingt, sich bei seinen Fahrten in aufregende Tagträume hinein spinnt und schließlich nicht mehr zwischen Realität und Fantasie zu unterscheiden vermag. Seine Erfahrungen mit Musikvideos erleichterten es Ruzowitzky, die rasenden Rhythmen und den hämmernden Beat in einem für die Zuschauer geradezu stroboskopartig wirkenden Filmschnitt bildlich einzufangen. Das Tempo des Rave bestimmt auch den Lebensstil der Protagonisten."--Container

Come, sweet death! by Wolf Haas( Book )

"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"--

"Lena ist heimatlos. In der Grossstadt konnte sie nicht Fuss fassen, am Land ist sie längst nicht mehr zu Hause und die grosse, weite Welt, die sie angeblich als Kellnerin auf einem Kreuzfahrtschiff bereist hat, kennt sie nur vom Horensagen. Das Begräbnis des Grossvaters ist ihr nun Anlass und Vorwand zugleich, ins Dorf zurückzukehren, in der Hoffnung, vielleicht doch hier ihren Platz im Leben zu finden."--Container
