I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Die Panne

Cover of Die Panne.

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.


Garagisten ist man ausgeliefert wie einst Raubrittern, noch früher Ortsgöttern und Dämonen.
