Overview
"Wolf Haas is the real deal, and his arrival on the American book scene is long overdue."
--Carl Hiaasen

THE FIRST INSPECTOR BRENNER NOVEL
The darkly comic book that launched the bestselling series . . .
Wolf Haas is firmly established as one of the world's bestselling crime novelists. And now the novel that introduced Simon Brenner, Haas's inimitable protagonist--a detective who always gets where he's going, but never the way anyone else would--is available for the first time 
in English.
When the corpses of two Americans turn up on a ski lift in the idyllic Swiss town of Zell, former police inspector Brenner, who needs a new job, not to mention more migraine medication, agrees to investigate the deaths for an insurance company.
But as Brenner gets acquainted with the finer points of curling, community theater, and certain sexy local schoolteachers, he notices one thing starkly missing: any semblance of a clue.
Until he stumbles across a buried secret that might have explosive consequences.

Originally published in Germany in 1996, Haas's first in his Insp. Simon Brenner series uses a sardonic omniscient third-person narrative voice to stand out from other darkly comic mysteries. The setting is Zell, the capital of Pinzgau, "a tiny speck" in the middle of Europe, whose economy is sustained by skiing. Brenner has quit the police after almost 20 years, and taken up as a PI. An insurance company gives him what appears to be a tragic accident to investigate: an Americans couple, rich octogenarian factory owners, froze to death on a ski lift owned by their son-in-law, Vergolder Antretter. As Antretter, who controls half of Zell, is the only surviving relative, the circumstances of the deaths appear suspicious. From the outset, Haas makes clear that the investigation will be a long haul, with the narrator stating that Brenner solves the case after working on it for nine months. But the time passes quickly en route to a solution that's been fairly clued. (Feb.)
