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

On a quiet highway in downtown Amsterdam, a guy is located striking from the ceiling beam of his bed room, upstairs from the hot non secular society he based: a bunch that calls itself “Hindist” and supposedly mixes parts of varied jap traditions. Detective-Adjutant Gripstra and Sergeant de Gier of the Amsterdam police are despatched to enquire what feels like an easy suicide, yet they're instantly suspicious of the circumstances.

This now-classic novel, first released in 1975, introduces Janwillem van de Wetering’s adorable Amsterdam cop duo of portly, clever Gripstra and good-looking, contemplative de Gier. With its unvarnished depiction of the legacy of Dutch colonialism and the darker points of Amsterdam’s unfastened drug tradition, this glorious procedural asks the query of even if a homicide may perhaps ever be justly committed.
