The first Amsterdam Cops mystery On a quiet street in downtown Amsterdam, a man is found hanging from the ceiling beam of his bedroom, upstairs from the new religious society he founded: a group that calls itself “Hindist” and supposedly mixes elements of various Eastern traditions. Detective-Adjutant Gripstra and Sergeant de Gier of the Amsterdam police are sent to investigate what looks like a simple suicide, but they are immediately suspicious of the circumstances. This now-classic novel, first published in 1975, introduces Janwillem van de Wetering’s lovable Amsterdam cop duo of portly, wise Gripstra and handsome, contemplative de Gier. With its unvarnished depiction of the legacy of Dutch colonialism and the darker facets of Amsterdam’s free drug culture, this excellent procedural asks the question of whether a murder may ever be justly committed. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Der als Kriminalschriftsteller berühmt gewordene Janwillem van de Wetering hat eineinhalb Jahre in der Askese eines Zen-Klosters verbracht. «Seine oft genug körperlich schmerzhaften Erlebnisse mit der Zen-Meditation, der ernüchternde, auch von Lausbubengehabe durchzogene Alltag im Kloster und die Schlussfolgerungen, die schließlich zum Abbruch seiner Studien führten, sind auf eine Weise geschildert, die so ganz ohne beweihräuchernde Stimmungsmache auskommt.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) Das Buch ist ein existenzielles Abenteuer für alle Leser, denen die bewusstlose Routine des Lebens nicht genügt.

A collection of 13 short stories spanning two decades in the lives of van de Wetering's Amsterdam Cops Amsterdam isn’t exactly a hotbed of violent crime, but wrongdoing does occur, and the most bizarre cases tend to be passed to Grijpstra and de Gier. In one they investigate the death of a handsome oceanographer whose corpse is found amidst his tanks of shiny living mussels. In another they strong-arm a brutal crime lord whose henchman threatens the sergeant’s cat. Yet another leads them to uncover a most unusual murder weapon: a chocolate Easter bunny. With the curious blend of wit and the macabre readers have come to expect from the pen of Janwillem van de Wetering, the Amsterdam Cops have a way of seeing to it that justice, ultimately, is done. From the Trade Paperback edition.
