Praise for The Maine Massacre

*Winner of the international Grand Prix de Littérature Policière*

“Triumphant . . . The best of the van de Wetering mysteries so far.”
The New York Times

“Never before have [van de Wetering’s] strengths seemed so strong: the genuine humor, decency, and wisdom of his Amsterdam policemen positively glow.”
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.”
The Boston Globe

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

“What makes this series so engaging is that the policemen are as quirky and complicated as the criminals.”
The Washington Post
