Glauser, Friedrich: The Spoke (09.04.09)
Returning to this writer after some time has passed, I was again delighted with the simple straightforward telling of what was a somewhat complex murder plot. Featuring Sergeant Studer again, the characters are all economically but believably portrayed and some parts, like the description of the village midway through nthe novel, are poetic without being overblown. It is easy to accept that Glauser was one of nthe greats of the inter-war crime story.
