Other good example of hardboiled caper/comedy is Donald Westlake's Dortmunder series.

> Our own Bob Toomey used the phrase "hardboiled comedy" (applied to
Peter Rabe's MURDER ME FOR NICKELS) back in January 2000 on this list. Mario Taboada also used the phrase (applied to Richard S. Prather) in June 2000 on this list.
> There are other examples on the internet that predate these uses,
by the way (such as a Village Voice article from 1999).
