RARA-AVIS: Re: hardboiled comedy

Westlake wrote a splendid little book called The Busy Body back in the sixties. This is hardboiled comedy (not slapstick but funny as hell within a grim story). His recent Put a Lid on It is in the same vein. Block's Tanner series is also an example of funny hardboiled.
