Reviews

Praise for The Maine Massacre *Winner of the international Grand Prix de Litt�rature Polici�re* "Triumphant . . . The best of the van de Wetering mysteries so far." --The New York Times "Never before have [van de Wetering's] strengths seemed so strong: the genuine humor, decency, and wisdom of his Amsterdam policemen positively glow." --Kirkus Reviews Praise for Janwillem van de Wetering "Mr. Van de Wetering's policemen are just as likely to . . . marvel at human nature as to shoot it down." --The New York Times "[A] unique atmospheric mix of police procedure, quirky characters, and Zen outlook." -The Boston Globe "[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
