The wry and rueful Columbo of Austria investigates a grisly murder at a beloved restaurant where snooty Viennese gourmands go to eat … fried chicken.

At a wildly popular chicken shack in the Austrian countryside, a gruesome discovery is made in the pile of chicken bones waiting to be fed into the basement grinder: human bones. But when former-police detective now private eye Simon Brenner shows up to investigate, the woman who hired him has disappeared …

Brenner likes chicken, though, so he stays, but finds no one will talk. And as he waits for the disappeared manager, there’s one ghastly find after another.

Perhaps the most raucous book in the series, The Bone Man manages to make fun of institutions from high cuisine to soccer while nonetheless building relentless suspense based in all-too-real social issues. Smart, tense, and funny, the book makes clear why Carl Hiaasen called Wolf Haas “the real deal.”

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 25, 2013 – Soccer, Balkan conflict, and fried chicken are just three of the unlikely ingredients that go into Haas s darkly comic second novel to be translated into English featuring Austrian PI Simon Brenner (after 2012 s Brenner and God). The L schenkohl Grill, a popular eatery in the small town of Kl ch, is shaken after human remains turn up among chicken bones in a bone grinder. Ex-cop Brenner arrives from Vienna ready to investigate, only to discover that the Grill s manager, Angelika, who hired him, has disappeared. As Brenner deals instead with the owner, Angelika s imposing father-in-law, Friedrich L schenkohl, more people disappear, and mayhem erupts in the local soccer league. American mystery fans should enjoy Haas s quirky, digressive storytelling style, though a sprawling plotline and the translation s inevitable difficulty with conveying the original language s flavor prevent this whodunit from being the ideal introduction to the rumpled, unassuming, and unforgettable Brenner.
