my favorite Greene is "The End of the Affair"; not crime fiction and hence not "hardboiled" in that sense though the narrator could fit the bill for a hardboiled character. "Brighton Rock" and "The Third Man" are both crime novels, and at least have elements of hardboiled and noir (actually I've never read the third man, but I understand it follows the film very closely; IIRC, the book was actually adapted from the film rather than vice versa, though Greene wrote both).
