HANS-HENNER HESS
GRILLWETTER. Anwalt Fickel ermittelt/
BARBECUE TIME. Attorney Fickel investigates

A new case for the laziest attorney in the world
It’s all going through the grinder – this time for real

“A masterfully quirky debut novel from the trained lawyer Hans-Henner Hess. Rarely have I laughed so much about the justice system.” Kester Schlenz, STERN on “Herrentag”

“Hans-Henner Hess tells all of this [...] in a light flaky conversational voice, which turns the reading of this second Fickel volume into a uniquely enjoyable experience.” Petra Pluwatsch, Kölner Stadtanzeiger on “Bobmörder”

ATTORNEY FICKEL AND THE RESCUING OF THE THURINGIAN ROASTED BRATWURST

Attorney Fickel would like to put aside for a while his activities as local counsel at the district court, in order to finally devote sufficient time to his private life, to be more specific: Astrid Kemmerzehl, the woman he so carefully and tenderly grew close to last summer. But Bad Kissingen is far away, and now, of all times, things have grown dicey in Meiningen.
The Wagenschwanz Thuringian Sausage Wares Company in Meiningen has declared bankruptcy. Mass layoffs are pending, and the worst part is: a production stop seems unavoidable. - The repercussions for southwestern Thuringia and its populace would be devastating: sudden bratwurst deprivation, tofu shock, orphaned grills, and a glut of grill-extinguishing beer varieties. An entire region on the verge of drifting away.
To top it all off, the bankruptcy trustee has vanished without a trace. Has he ab-sconded with a suitcase full of money, as Rudi Wagenschwanz, the CEO of the com-pany, fears, or was he sooner ground up into sausage stuffing by an angry employ-ee, as Criminal Attorney Recknagel suspects? At first glance, a messy situation - whom, if not Fickel, would anyone trust to sort everything back out again? Now he’ll have to choose: love or sausage. - For someone like Fickel, there’s not all that much to consider...

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/
