RARA-AVIS: Nero Wolfe

I watched the new Nero Wolfe movie on TV last night. It was pretty amusing, but it made me wonder about the books. I've only read one, Fer de Lance, and that was a long time ago (George, was that in our hardboiled course or in the general mystery course I took?).

While I wouldn't go so far as to claim the movie was hardboiled, Archie certainly drew on the tough guy image of hardboiled, in his actions and his slangy language and delivery. The movie was a bit campy. Are the books? Any particular titles recommended?
