“After reading Friedrich Glauser's dark tour de force In Matto's Realm, it's easy to see why the German equivalent of the Edgar Allan Poe Award is dubbed ‘The Glauser.’”—The Washington Post Praise for the Sergeant Studer series: “Thumbprint is a fine example of the craft of detective writing in a period which fans will regard as the golden age of crime fiction.”—The Sunday Telegraph “In Matto’s Realm is a gem that contains echoes of Dürrenmatt, Fritz Lang’s film M and Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain. Both a compelling mystery and an illuminating, finely wrought mainstream novel.”—Publishers Weekly When, in later years, Sergeant Studer told the story of the Chinaman, he called it the story of three places, as the case unfolded in a Swiss country inn, in a poorhouse, and in a horticultural college. Three places and two murders. Anna Hungerlott, supposedly dead from gastric influenza, left behind handkerchiefs with traces of arsenic. One foggy November morning the enigmatic James Farny, nicknamed the Chinaman by Studer, was found lying on Anna’s grave. Murdered, a single pistol shot to the heart that did not pierce his clothing. This is the fourth in the Sergeant Studer series. Friedrich Glauser is a legendary figure in European crime writing. He was a morphine and opium addict much of his life and began writing crime novels while an inmate of the Swiss asylum for the insane at Waldau.

Excerpt from The Chinaman as We See Him Now that we have moved our borders across the Pacific, the Chinese are more than ever coming into View; and certainly we ought to seek to be better acquainted with a people who have become our near neighbors. 'we are more than ever concerned in the vast possibilities, the material development, and moral characteristics of this ancient people, who are destined to occupy such a prominent place in the world's life. The corruptions of China, of which we hear so much, are largely confined to the ruling classes. The people themselves are a healthy, vigorous, virile race, who will undoubtedly grow in power and develop qualities of national life which the world will be compelled to respect and admire.
