Product Details


Praise for Resurrection

“If you like the Coen brothers, you will adore Inspector Brenner.”
Globe and Mail (Canada)

Best Book Covers of 2014

“It’s truly amazing to see Brenner finally put the pieces together . . . Add a narrator whose rapid-fire monologue piles additional layers of digression atop Brenner’s own circumlocutions, and you have the shaggiest detective currently working the field.”
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Brenner and God

“Simon Brenner, the hero of Wolf Haas’s marvelous series of crime thrillers, is a wildly likable and original character—a delightful and unexpected hero to show up in this noble and enduring genre.”
—Jonathan Demme, Oscar-winning director of The Silence of the Lambs

“A must for crime fiction lovers with a sense of humor: In Simon Brenner, Wolf Haas has created a protagonist so real and believable that I sometimes wanted to tap him on the shoulder and point him in the right direction!”     
—Andrey Kurkov, author of Death and the Penguin

“Brenner and God is one of the cleverest—and most thoroughly enjoyable—mysteries that I’ve read in a long time. Wolf Haas is the real deal, and his arrival on the American book scene is long overdue.”    
—Carl Hiaasen, author of Sick Puppy

“A meticulously plotted, dark, and often very funny ride.”
The Millions

“Brenner and God is a humdinger . . . a sockdollager of an action yarn, revealed via the smart-ass, self-effacing narrative voice that’s a sort of trademark of author Wolf Haas.”
The Austin Chronicle

“[A] superb translation of one of Austria’s finest crime novels . . . Haas never loses the thread of investigation, even as he introduces off-beat characters and a very complex plot . . . This is the first of the Brenner novels in English. We can only hope for more, soon.”
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Even as Haas darkens the mood of this sly and entertaining novel, he maintains its sardonically irreverent tone.”
The Barnes & Noble Review

“A pacey and gripping read.”
Euro Crime

“A gleaming gem of a novel.”
Crimespree Magazine

“This quirkily funny kidnapping caper marks the first appearance in English of underdog sleuth Simon Brenner . . . Austrian author Haas brings a wry sense of humor . . . American readers will look forward to seeing more of Herr Simon.”     
Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Bone Man

“Darkly comic . . . American mystery fans should enjoy Haas’s quirky, digressive storytelling style.”    
Publishers Weekly

“It’s a novel that leaves you laughing even as you work to solve the mystery.”
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“A brilliant book . . . Already among the greats of mystery fiction.”
Book Devil

“The most original figure here is the narrator, who hovers above the action with matter-of-fact detachment, ever alert for moments when he can swoop down and set you straight about what’s going on or change the subject entirely.”
