Thanks for the link. The Brandstetter novels are similar in style and tone to the Lew Archer series. The personal life of Brandstetter, however, is very much a part of the series. He ages from book to book and his relationships change as well. It's one of the most satisfying aspect of Hansen's writing along with a nice touch for descriptions. Hansen was not a great plotter and some of the novels suffer in that respect.

I'm quite fond of the series.
