The bestselling detective novel from the author of THE READER. Available in paperback for the first time in the UK. Sixty-eight years old; a smoker of Sweet Aftons, a dedicated drinker of Aviateur cocktails, and the owner of a charismatic cat named Turbo, Gerhard Self is an unconventional private detective. When Self is summoned by his long-time friend and rival Korten to investigate several incidents of computer-hacking at a chemicals company, he finds himself dealing with an unfamiliar kind of crime that throws up many challenges. But in his search for the hacker, Self stumbles upon something far more sinister. His investigation eventually unearths dark secrets that have been hidden for decades, and forces Self to confront his own demons.11 Suite in B minor We arrived towards midday, took rooms in a hotel by the lake, and lunched in the glassed-in veranda, ... We rang the bell, opened the heavy door, went up the steps to the front garden, and there facing us was a simple, red- painted, two-level house. Next to the entrance we saw a garden table and chairs, like the ones in beer-gardens. The table was ... tall, with a slightly bent forward gait, a full head of white hair, a neat, short-trimmed grey beard, and bushy eyebrows.
