The beer must be some foreign import (I really don't know since I don't drink beer myself).

There is some, even though the people read more huge international thrillers (we have some phenomenally popular writers of our own). There have been no reprints of noir classics recently and we are missing a good specialty publisher. I tried to persuade some publishers for Jason Starr (hi, Jason!), but alas, with no results. But I do know many people (hi, Tapani!) who have a great affinity for noir, both film and books.
