The Inspector Barlach mysteries : the judge and his hangman and Suspicion by Friedrich Dürrenmatt( Book )

553 editions published between 1952 and 2019 in 16 languages and held by 2,818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The hero - or perhaps anti-hero - of these two classic, genre-bending mysteries is, as Sven Birkerts describes him, "a detective at career's end ... no family, a domestic life no more furnished than Sam Spade's, with only gruff and grumbling ties to his colleagues on the Bern police force." Both mysteries follow Inspector Barlach as he moves through worlds in which the distinction between crime and justice has grown uncertain. In The Judge and His Hangman, Barlach forgoes the arrest of a murderer in order to manipulate him into killing another, more elusive criminal. And in Suspicion, Barlach pursues a former Nazi doctor by checking into his clinic with the hope of forcing him to reveal himself. These two thrillers by the great Swiss writer Friedrich Durrenmatt, newly translated by Joel Agee, bring existential philosophy, and the detective genre into dazzling convergence."--BOOK JACKET

The quarry by Friedrich Dürrenmatt( Book )

312 editions published between 1949 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Der Verdacht geht es nicht darum, herauszufinden, wer der Mörder ist, sondern darum, ob und wie Kommissär Bärlach wieder aus der Falle kommt, in die er hineingeraten ist. Bärlach hat eine Operation überstanden, und man nimmt an, daß er noch ein Jahr leben wird. Er liegt im Salemspital in Bern und liest symbolischerweise in der Zeitschrift "Life". Ein Bild erweckt Verdacht seines Arztes, daß nämlich der berüchtigte Arzt Nehle, der im Konzentrationslager Stutthof ohne Narkose operierte, mit Dr. Emmenberger, dem Vorsteher einer Zürcher Privatklinik, identisch sei. Bärlach hätte allen Grund, anderen die Prüfung dieses Falles zu überlassen: erstens ist er jetzt pensioniert und zweitens hätte er wohl ein Recht darauf, sein letztes Lebensjahr in Ruhe zu genießen. - Verlag
The execution of justice by Friedrich Dürrenmatt( Book )

172 editions published between 1985 and 2019 in 25 languages and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A respected professor is dead - shot in a crowded Zurich restaurant, in front of dozens of witnesses. The murderer calmly turned himself in to the police. So why has he now hired a lawyer to clear his name? And why has he chosen the drink-soaked, disreputable Spät to defend him? As he investigates, Spät finds himself obsessed, drawn ever deeper into a case of baffling complexity until he reaches a deadly conclusion: justice can be restored only by a crime. This is a captivating neo-noir classic from the master of the genre. The Execution of Justice is a dark, wicked satire on the legal system and a disturbing, if ambivalent, allegory on guilt, justice, violence and morality."--Publisher's description
