In guter culture der bisherigen Groll-Romane sind die zum Teil haarsträubenden Unternehmungen der Protagonisten in einen steten Fluss teils skurriler, teils scharfsichtiger Erörterungen der Welträtsel eingebettet.
Und nicht zufällig ist es der große Strom, der die Entscheidung herbeiführt.
Eine Kriminal-Groteske, packend von der ersten bis zu letzten Seite.
