It s a fine example of the craft of detective writing in a period which some regard as the golden age of crime fiction.
The Sunday TelegraphThe death of a traveling salesman appears to be an open and shut case.
Studer is confronted with an obvious suspect and a confession to the murder.
But nothing is what it seems. Envy, hatred, and the corrosive power of money lie just beneath the surface.
Studer s investigation soon splinters the glassy facade of Switzerland s tidy villages and manicured forests.Diagnosed a schizophrenic, addicted to morphine and opium, Friedrich Glauser spent the greater part of his life in psychiatric wards, insane asylums and prison.
His acute observations conjure up a world of those at the margins of society."
