Review:

Praise for Janwillem van de Wetering

“Masterly Zen mysteries.”
The New York Times Book Review

"[Van de Wetering] is doing what Simenon might have done if Albert Camus had sublet his skull."
—John Leonard

"What makes this series so engaging is that the policemen are as quirky and complicated as the criminals."
The Washington Post
