rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Our protagonist has a breakdown and, because the village inn is full, is invited to stay in a local mansion. It turns out that his host is a retired judge, and together with his friends, a retired prosecutor and a retired attorney, they stage a mock-trial of their guest – all in good fun – of crimes yet to be named. The rest is very Dürrenmatt. Short and enjoyable, but always with an edge of unease.


10/ Die Panne by Friedrich Dürrenmatt. Delightfully brutal novella (as Dürrenmatt tends to be). The protagonist feels great the whole time, while the reader is trapped in uneasiness. https://books.rixx.de/friedrich-durrenmatt/die-panne/
