Ein Teil einer künstlichen Hüfte, das zwei Touristen aus einem Güllefass wie von einem Katapult abgeschossen um die Ohren fliegt, ist der Auslöser für die Suche nach einem lange verschwundenen Mann. Irmi Mangold und Kathi Reindl finden heraus, zu wem die Hüfte gehörte. Die Geschichte des Bauern ist ein Albtraum. Erst kommt sein behinderter Sohn ums Leben, dann verenden all seine Kühe an einer rätselhaften Krankheit, und schließlich gibt es kein Lebenszeichen mehr von ihm selbst.

I have tried to listen to this book twice now and can’t get over how silly it is . Narrated by someone that pretends to have an Bavarian dialect. Not going to waste my time any longer.

I have read this book already and absolutely enjoyed it as an audio book as well.The story is interesting and the narrator is superb! I just love the different dialects and the Bavarian is the „real deal“ not someone just trying to sound like someone from the area. Love - love - love. Will purchase my next book immediately. Thank you for giving me a little bit of home while living in the USA!!

Ein Mord in Kommissar Kluftingers beschaulichem Allgäuer Heimatort Altusried: Der Lebensmittelchemiker des örtlichen Milchwerks ist stranguliert worden. Mit eigenwilligen Ermittlungsmethoden riskiert der liebenswert-kantige Kommissar einen Blick hinter die Fassade der Allgäuer Postkartenidylle - und entdeckt einen scheinbar vergessenen Verrat, dunkle Machenschaften und einen handfesten Skandal.

I read all the Kluftinger book and am so happy I can enjoy them again as an audio book. I can only give a 2 stars for the narration of the book. I believe the authors would make a good decision having the books narrated professionally.

I have read all the Kommissar Wallner books and now I am thrilled I can also listen to them on Audio books.
The story is great the setting is my hometown and I feel I can relate and even “know” the characters.
The narrator does an incredible job.
Can’t wait for my next book.

My first book by this author and I am already looking for more. I usually prefer male narrators, but very much enjoyed Eva Mattes voice. A great unusual story, one that left me thinking. The dog Castor added do much to the story. Thank you for a worthwhile audio book!

Als Kommissar Wallner die Nachricht erhält, man habe die Leiche eines alten Mannes gefunden, bleibt ihm beinahe das Herz stehen: Seit Stunden ist Opa Manfred abgängig und auf dem Handy nicht zu erreichen. Doch am Tatort stellt Wallner erleichtert fest, dass Manfred wohlauf ist - er und Polizeiobermeister Leonhardt Kreuthner haben den Toten entdeckt. Unter leicht dubiosen Umständen, versteht sich. Bald stellt sich heraus, dass der ermordete Dieter Wartberg gar nicht tot sein dürfte.

I am from Miesbach Germany living in the USA. I absolutely love the Kommissar Wallner Books,not only as they bring a bit of Home to me. They are well written, interesting stories and funny but not "stupid funny". I recommend starting with the first Wallner book as you will start loving the characters and want to "meet them" early on. I can't wait for the next book!

I have read all the "Klufti" books and now have found them on Audible. Thank you! Sometimes I find myself sitting for a few more minutes in the garage or parking lot to listen a few extra minutes. Clever, funny (but not stupid funny) and so very enjoyable. Hoping for more.

We tried this book once on a long 4 day trip and gave up. Tried it again this year and it was just as bad. Predictable, filled with stereotypes and boring. I will delete it now so we don't get tempted again for a third time.

Rachel Eisenberg ist Mitinhaberin einer angesehenen Münchner Kanzlei, frisch getrennt und Mutter einer 13-jährigen Tochter. Ihr neuer Fall soll eigentlich nur ein bisschen Medienpräzenz bringen - ein Obdachloser, der eines äußerst gewalttätigen Mordes verdächtigt wird -, doch als sie ihrem Mandanten zum ersten Mal gegenüber sitzt, ist Rachel sprachlos: Sie kennt ihn. Oder glaubte das zumindest.

Another great book by Andreas Föhr.
I love a good German "Krimi" . Eisenberg was well written and superbly narrated.
I wish I could find more books like this one -interesting from start to finish and not an insult to the listener.
