Item description for Thumbprint by Friedrich Glauser, Michael Mitchell, Katsuhiro Honda, Marie Severin, Dierk Schleicher, K. B. Tan & S. Cao...

"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 Telegraph

The 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 faade 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Thumbprint?

Efficient and entertaining  Apr 5, 2007
This is the first Glauser that I've read and I have to say I was very impressed. He describes people and places very well yet economically, always the telling detail but no more. His Seargent Studer is very sharp and realistic, too. I'm very interested to read more works by this author.
Swiss Noir  Jul 9, 2006
Dear dirty middle Europe and the sad 1930s. Small-town Switzerland tightly depicted by a Swiss-Austrian addict experienced in the legal process. A tough, bright, crafty detective tangles with sly villagers. In the cynicism of its final vision, not your Miss Marple--much closer in style and viewpoint to the work of Jorg Fauser,a German writer who flourished in the 1980s. Try it.
