I also had to drop one of Wessel's books. It was a small wonder that a Finnish publisher did at least two of his books. I once googled Wessel and found that there had been no discussion about him on Rara-Avis! (The stupid Finnish publisher may have decided after having Wessel's bad work in their hands that there's no market for American hardboiled crime in Finland. Too bad.)


The fans of DETOUR should remember that Martin Goldsmith's original novel is available in trade paperback.


I liked LEON and thought it was Besson's best film (which probably doesn't mean much). I don't know if it's noir, though.
