The new English translation is unaccountably unavailable on Goodreads.

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, the plot itself is a little weak.

I'll read more as they are translated, though.

An ISBN search will bring up the English version (bit of a pain to do it that way, I know). I'm just as puzzled as you as to why it won't come up on a title search.

Dorian Good to know. Thanks.
