    One thought on “Der Brenner und der liebe Gott”

    1. I don t read a lot of detective books, but picked this up based on Tom Roberge s recommendation and The Weather Fifteen Years Ago, which is absolutely brilliant Anyway, the book itself is totally fine and does exactly what it s supposed to do sets forth a mystery, keeps the reader guessing a bit, includes a bit of sexy, a bit of violence, a few tight situations, all resolved in the end by our intrepid hero, Brenner But Haas s writing style annoys the shit out of me First off, there are a ton of [...]

    2. Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted illegally I m never a good person to listen to when it comes to crime novels, because I m not really much of a fan of the genre and then when it comes to Wolf Haas Brenner and God, the English debut of what is apparently a hugely popular series in Europe, there s an additional problem, which is that the translation by Annie J [...]

    3. Funny in a dark humor sort of way, and I really liked it it also has one of the ickiest situations in a crime novel I ve ever read.Ex cop Simon Brenner has finally found a profession he actually likes and someone who understands him better that most adults he s had anything to do with in his life Brenner works as a chauffeur for the Kressdorfs, the parents of two year old Helena, with whom he can discuss his problems and worries while he s driving her out on the Autobahn It s a great arrangement [...]

    4. The seventh I think in a bestselling German series, here translated for the first time, and I tried to like it I really did, in part because it was given to me by someone whose taste I admire but I couldn t It s written in a cockamamie and fiercely irritating third person in which the narrator takes a very animated intrusive would be another way of putting it role, continually stepping aside to tell us what he thinks about this or that, to order us to pay attention in case what he s about to te [...]

    5. Bits and pieces I didn t like I found the first bit not the most readable, but the last half of this all too short book was a blistering read This seemed a much mature read than and Resurrection and The Bone Man After the halfway mark, I couldn t put the book down It was that good a read Now I m stuck waiting for translations, although it looks like I could read Come, Sweet Death now I m not sure if crime readers will like Brenner because almost everything I ve read in Crime has left me comple [...]

    6. I liked this short book featuring an Austrian ex detective turned chauffeur It was definitely quirky and different, but that s good The story was told by a somewhat detached narrator who is not identified, and that took some getting used to This is the first of Haas s books to be translated, and I m not sure if it s the first in his series or not Fantasticficion lists it as first, but maybe that s because it was translated first I ll definitely try another.

    7. Translated from the German by Annie Janusch Personally, I prefer to look on the positive side of life these days Not just Murder He Wrote all the time, and who got who with a bullet, a knife, an extension cord, or what else I don t know Me, I m far interested in the nice people now, the quiet ones, the normals, the ones who you d say they lead their regular lives, abide by the law, don t mistake themselves for the good lord when they get up in the morning, just nice tidy lives.Look at Kressdor [...]

    8. Brenner and God is the first of Wolf Haas s Detective Simon Brenner series to be translated from German to English, though it is the seventh book in the series It seems like an odd place to begin, but I doubt any one would guess It was the premise that piqued my interest, introducing Brenner, once a police detective, now a personal chauffeur for a two year old girl, Helena When Helena goes missing from the limousine while Brenner sips espresso in the service station, it is assumed that she has b [...]

    9. This is the seventh book in the Brenner series by Austrian writer Haas, but the first to appear in English I generally hate it when series books are translated out of order, since it always leaves me with a nagging feeling that there s a whole lot of depth and backstory to the protagonist that I m missing out on That was especially the case with this book, which employs an unusually intrusive omniscient narrator who offers a snarky running commentary to the proceedings.Brenner is an antidepressa [...]

    10. This one is beautiful And it s all in the VOICE I am always happy to find a new Euro cop I can enjoy For me, Simon Brenner, a disaffected Austrian cop created by Austrian writer Wolf Haas is a delightful discovery The unseen, unnamed narrator Haas assigns to relate this story is one of the truly funny literary voices I have read in a long while In my opinion, funny is the most difficult challenge in any genre of writing And the so in mystery writing Anyone who ever got hooked on Philip Marlowe [...]

    11. Brenner and God is a curious book The story is told through an anonymous narrator who both tells the story and talks to the reader, sometimes telling them what to do My dear Swan, pay attention, this is important It s a style that I found increasingly irritating, partly because it comes across as somewhat patronising There are also a number of what are meant to be profound digressions, providing insights into modern society, but most fall flat As for the story, it s a kidnapping story with a twi [...]

    12. A fun break Interesting narrator, third person but from Brenner s point of view, primarily, and direct address from beginning to end I like the running patter of observations about memory, desperation, cell phones, police technique, hindsight, a truth written in flames, the Zone of Transparencyl in asides with just the right amount of disjointed, simultaneous breeziness and seriousness.In hindsight it would all be revealed eventually, or frankly, not even all of it, or else Vienna would look ver [...]

    13. BRENNER AND GOD is one of the cleverest and most thoroughly enjoyable mysteries that I ve read in a long time Wolf Haas is the real deal, and his arrival on the American book scene is long overdue Carl HiaasenThink of a Cohen brothers movie adaptation of a Carl Hiaasen novel set in Germany and you re only about halfway to understanding how enjoyable Wolf Haas Detective Brenner books are.

    14. What fun, what style, made me laugh out loud And I liked how the narrator takes the reader by the hand leading misleading Will try to read the series from the beginning in German since the translation indicates a few Austrian jokes insights worth savouring.

    15. A good mystery although the style reminded me of the dialect many German born Canadians seem to use when speaking Englishd that made the fluidity of reading difficult but not off putting.

    16. Overall, it is a moderately good crime story but the style is very very different to the average crime story There is a kidnapping and a mystery developers around who did it and why There are suspects and several men are murdered The connection does become clear eventually but the story twists and turns Not as you would expect in such a story but as Result of the actual narration I did find the style exasperating and was ready to put the book aside several times I kept reading though to discover [...]

    17. Written in a very different way from what I m used to, but I enjoyed it, as well as the humor, and the story itself It s a kidnapping murder mystery.

    18. If you haven t heard of the insanely talented and clever Wolf Haas, it s probably because you speak English and live in America One of the best selling crime fiction authors in Germany and other German speaking countries, as well as Europe, he is best known for his books featuring Simon Brenner think of Brenner as the German Adrian Monk sort of three of which have been made into films Komm, s er Tod Come Sweet Death , Silentium and Der Knochenmann The Boneman He has won several prizes for his wo [...]

    19. I very nearly gave up on this novel at page 83, going to far to shelve it, temporarily as it turned out, on my Did Not Finish shelf but I kept going because there are so many positive reviews on here, not to mention glowing praise on the covers from people as varied as Carl Hiassen and Jonathan Demme yes, I know, who d have thought it But he did direct Silence of the Lambs after all Wish I could say this is one you need to stick with and then all of a sudden you get it Not so much Instead, I sup [...]

    20. If you re expecting the traditional American version of an ex cop, you would be very wrong with Wolf Haas character Brenner, in the book Brenner and God Brenner is a bit slow witted, possibly slightly depressed kind of ex cop who takes on the job of being a driver for a two year old child of an abortion doctor and her contractor husband And he does it well, traveling between the two individuals and the child s daycare provider That is, until the day that he forgets to gas up the car before picki [...]

    21. This is a very clever murder mystery, written from an unusual and witty authorial viewpoint The semi omniscient narrator never identifies or explains himself, yet seems to know some things, and not know other things, and becomes a character in himself He informs us early in the book that specific terrible things will happen, and when, and they do This in no way detracts from the pleasures of walking through the poses and plans of the evil Senator, the rich developer and the scheming thugs The se [...]

    22. Der neue Haas ganz gut eben typisch Bei manchen Szenen stellt man sich gleich vor wie grauslich das dann verfilmt wird.So sehr ich vom Stilmittel des langsamen beh bigen Romans mit simpler einf ltiger Sprache am Anfang begeistert war, so sehr nervt mich mit der steigenden Anzahl der gelesenen Brenner Romane die ewig gleiche Fadesse.Lieber Wolf Haas ich glaub unter Auftraggeber und M rder duzt man sich Scheiss auf die Quoten f r zuk nftige Filme und murks endlich den Brenner gaanz grausllich und [...]

    23. Nach all den Jahren wieder ein Brenner Allein schon aus Nostalgie habe ich das Lesen sehr genossen und damit die Nacht von Freitag Erscheinungstag auf Samstag verbracht Stilistisch ist alles wie gehabt Ich vermute sogar, dass kein Buch der Reihe was den Stil angeht so prototypisch ist Auf aber interessant wartete ich wie bei jedem Asterix auf die Piraten und wurde nicht entt uscht Der Plot ist okay, kommt aber an die besten B cher der Reihe nicht ganz heran Nicht berzeugend ist leider, wie Haas [...]

    24. The storyteller is dead long live the storyteller in the last of the 6 Brenner stories which are so special due to the way the lyrical I is speaking to us, he dies Not the main character no the person telling is about Brenner, the ex policeman, ex detective Now he is back and so is this Mr Simon how Brenner is called in the beginning of this roller coaster of a crime story As usual written in an incomparable way Haas leads us through Austrian and general human absurdity seen by the eyes of our u [...]

    25. I read this in English The translation is wonderful because it s such quirky, inventive language full of half sentences and surprising quasi sequiturs I was completely taken in by this story for its plot, yes, since it had me baffled, but for the telling But if you re saying, that s despicable, then I unfortunately have to tell you, this was still the nice part of the story midnight spaghetti It s number 7 in a series, I guess, and I m going to look for number 1 to see if I might devour all of [...]

    26. Another compelling and original crime novel from Melville House Brenner and God will either captivate or grate on the reader there s no middle ground due to the highly unusual narrative voice of this novel My father didn t particularly care for it weird but I found the writing original and frequently hilarious, though hilarious in a fairly dark sense The detective, as it were, Brenner, gets in a bit over his head, without losing it completely, as he searchers for a young child that he happened t [...]

    27. My first foray into the work of Wolf Haas, and I may bump this up to 5 stars when I inevitably read it again A murder mystery like none other, thanks to a snarky protagonist and perhaps the most hilarious and off beat narrator I ve ever come across It takes a little while to get the feel of it, but once I did, I enjoyed the ride The titular Brenner is an ex cop in Austria, where he is now a chauffeur for a wealthy couple s little daughter After she s abducted, Brenner goes on the case, taking hi [...]

    28. The new English translation is unaccountably unavailable on I m so pleased Melville House is bringing this series into English, but why oh why must they like so many other publishers begin with a late entry in the series number 7, I believe So infuriating.What sets this book apart and the series as a whole, from the bits of others I ve dipped into in German is the narrative voice slangy, vicious, funny, and told from the point of view of an unnamed first person narrator, not the protagonist Alas [...]
