Ekkehard Knoerer's German-language web site spotlights crime fiction of a hard-boiled nature.
From Essen, Germany comes Lars Schafft's "Crime Couch," which offers portraits of mystery authors from all over the world and detailed reviews of their work. Users are invited to comment and judge each book. Alas, it's in German. "Krimi" is an acronym for the German term "Kriminalroman" for mystery novels in general. Their motto is "denn lesen ist spannender" which translates as "because reading is more thrilling."
