A peculiar sense of humour, eccentric characters,
a unique backdrop at the juncture between East and West Germany

Counsellor Fickel in the Ice Rut – Is He Fast Enough to Capture the Bobsled Murderer?

After his somehow not totally undeserved success in solving the Kminikowski affair, Counsellor Fickel has become a bit of a local celebrity in the former East German city of Meiningen and its surroundings. This not only manifests itself in heightened attention as far as the opposite sex is concerned but also the unaccustomed inquiries from potential clients. Shorty before the start of the Winter Olympics, Fickel suddenly careens on thin ice with his new case: Walter Kornhaß, the veteran technical head of the toboggan run at the Oberhof winter sports centre was apparently responsible for the negligent death of a highly decorated top female and is being accused of involuntary manslaughter. But Kornhaß insists on his innocence. Fickel sets forth on his investigation and soon runs into human abysses in the world of top-class sport. And then a second deadly accident occurs in the ice rut. Now at the latest, Fickel, a former pusher of the Oberhof II bobsled, takes the matter personally…

Hans-Henner Hess

Hans-Henner Hess verbrachte seine Jugend im Schatten der Berliner Mauer mit Tagträumen, Nachtwandeln sowie dem Züchten von winterharten Zierkakteen. Als nach Einführung des Westgelds wichtige Absatzmärkte wegbrachen, sah er sich gezwungen, einen ehrlichen Beruf zu erlernen, und entschied sich irrtümlich für die Juristerei. Beim Verfassen seitenlanger Schriftsätze gewann er Gefallen am Fabulieren und schulte kurzerhand um auf TV-Autor. Seine Erfahrungen im Justizalltag sowie eine angeborene Affinität zu Thüringer Klößen verarbeitet er in der bei DuMont erscheinenden Krimireihe um den relaxten Meininger Anwalt Fickel. Bislang erschienen ›Herrentag‹ (2013), ›Der Bobmörder‹ (2014) und ›Das Schlossgespinst‹ (2016). https://www.facebook.com/Anwalt-Fickel-1879865495672387/
