It’s all a little sloppy again: Eight years later, Wolf Hass finally presented the ninth part of his cult series around his hearth. Gorgeous as before?
Yes, of course: now something happened again. The sentence, however, never appears in The New Hearth, due out on Wednesday — which, after an eight-year hiatus, continues Wolf Hass’ cult series, which will find readers far beyond the crime genre. .
“Trash” is the name of the ninth case of the detective who has long become a trademark along with cinematic adaptations. And even if the unambiguously oblique narrative voice, which the Austrian author has already left before in order to revive it in the next part, does not convey this sentence either, there are a lot of other recognizable ones. Everything knocks a little, yes what do you think, a recipe for successful auxiliary expression.
And even if it was Mr. Haas now tells the editorial team: “Anyway, I just want to enjoy myself” – readers never got bored with him or his stove. Same thing with “garbage”.
Brenner’s Marginal Presence, He’s Now ‘Mistler’ and ‘Bedgoer’ in ‘Müll’
Of course, something happened again, this time at “Mistplatz”, zu Neudeutsch Wertstoffhof. A body was found there, scattered among various boxes of recyclables, that is, dismembered. Later it will turn out that something is missing – but you don’t want to reveal much. In any case, one thing is clear: Brenner will become a detective again against his will, because the ex-cop, ex-private investigator, ex-medicine … – now works there, and he is “wrong” – and besides, his life and living conditions have always been the same Difficulty, “the bed”. This means: he just looks at where someone is on vacation, or at least has not been at home for a long time, and he goes in, lives there, maybe fixes some things, sharpens knives … – and moves again. marginal presence. Then there is the abyss that Wolf Haas leads with cases, the white slave trade, the mafia, everything that was already there. This time the members trade, but now nothing else will be revealed.
So one can assume that the author has a certain desire to delve into the dark side of human beings. But he tells us: ‘Indeed, the abyss is not something I’m looking for, it’s just something there. And the joke is the only thing that helps against that. And how! Because as far as the cracks gap here, the shame is dazzling. So is the narrator. Typical in the new part: ‘You can’t Understand everything at the same time. Always takes my line of thought. One behind the other and one next to the other. But there is no mess. And most importantly, a clear mental distinction. This is what happened to me at the place of dung. When it comes to trash, it’s always about breaking up. That’s why I say garbage is the best school of thought. “

Then the stove. He wants to be tough, but he’s just a good guy – which is why this time he’s also helping out the victim’s beautiful and quirky daughter (just one set of gorgeous, but suitably original, cabaret, as always). In any case, the tragic Brenner rarely laughs, but loves to get into funny situations, this time handcuffed to bed for several hours, but not at all a rut.
Through the films, many may now see the decent face of Joseph Hader. Incidentally, 61-year-old Der Haas says, “I don’t think about my face when I’m writing anyway, more about his worldview.” And for the ninth too: Greetings for this stove! And if the “Literary Quartet” with Thea Dorn and Julie Zeh, where the theme of “Trash” is Friday, is the literary mastery any different? Is it like the book? “These questions gnaw at you, rat wouldn’t mind.” not really.
