Nervöse Fische ist ein typischer Krimi in gewohnter Steinfest-Sprachqualität. Leider hat mir die Figur des Inspektors Lukastik, so detailverliebt sie auch entwickelt sein mag, gar nicht gut gefallen. Sie ist zwar sehr kurios, aber mit ihrem Hang zu Wittgensteins Traktaten, die gar nicht verstanden, sondern gleich einem Orakel in jeder Lebenssituation befragt werden, einfach intelektuell zu überkandidelt konzipiert.
Auch in Bezug auf die sexuelle Abnormität hat Steinfest diesmal ein bissal zu tief

Von der Anlage interessant. Chefinspektor als Wittgenstein-Anhänger. Toter auf dem Dach, der von einem Hai angegriffen wurde.
Schräge Kombination – aber zu schräge Durchführung.

Von Wittgenstein ist leider nur wenig zu lesen und die Story dümpelt mit der Zeit auch nur doof vor sich hin. Chefinspektor hatte mal was mit seiner Schwester – immerhin mal eine etwas andere Biographie.

Man liest halt so was, wenn man wohl im Zug sitzt und was Leichts will. Dafür war es gut. Aber es bleibt nichts hängen,

A much more realistic mystery than the by-me-much-disliked Batmans Schoenheit while still exhibiting the David Lynch-esque weirdness that made the Cheng novels so interesting. And of course we've met Chefinspektor Lukastik in those novels. He's not as interesting a character as Cheng, but fun, nonetheless, and here, too, the language and philosophizing are more to the point than the zany plot.
