Meet Fahner, the retired small-town doctor who resorts to the garden axe when his patience with his cruel wife runs out. Meet Patrick, so entranced by the sight of his sleeping girlfriend that he cuts a small piece out of her back, just to see what she tastes like. Meet the silent assassin who calmly despatches two Neo-Nazi thugs on a railway platform. A nameless lawyer invites us to read an extraordinary dossier of violent and unspeakable acts. All the crimes have one thing in common: the guilty have never been convicted in a court of law. But however heinous the crime, the narrator shows how the human circumstances behind events can tell a different story.

A wonderful debut, gripping from the very first page and not a word out of place * Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung * What makes these tales stand out are not the extremes of their protagonists but the narrator's voice: resistant to melodrama, dryly funny...never less than humane. If Crime shows the arbitrary nature of justice, it also backs the underdogs -- Adrian Turpin * Financial Times * A strange and scary fictionalised casebook -- Boyd Tonkin * Independent, Books of the Year * Mesmerizing * New York Times * Small literary gems * The Times *
