Norbert  Horst - Time of Death


“Norbert Horst writes quickly, with concentration and strictly subjectively.” Deutsche Welle

“Norbert Horst is at present writing the best police novels in Germany.” Hamburger Abendblatt

“Seldom have I read such an authentic and realistic book about the work of the police.” WDR

“Professionalism, perfectly carried out.” krimileser.wordpress.com

“One of the best German crime story authors. His novels are finely composed literature, not simple hawking of everyday police events. And they don’t achieve their intensity and suspense from the exotic character of the plot or the exquisite brutality of the perpetrator, but rather from their main characters. Readers become close to Chief Detective Konstantin Kirchenberg (not a drinker, and not an overweight diabetic!); they are privy to his world of his mind, a chaotic plethora of splintered thoughts, precise observations, and cynical reflections. Horst’s strengths are the language of his protagonist – short, terse impressions – and the quick, apposite dialogue. This makes him, with his four novels, one of the best German crime story authors.” Focus Online
