Kommt Zeit kommt Mord - Peter  Wehle

Book: Hello! I am here to bring you a quirky Viennese crime-novel full of quirky Viennese characters

Aoife: Great...that's exactly what I wanted!

Book: Look at these characters being quirky!

Aoife: Yeah!

Book: really quirky! And funny! And Viennese!

Aoife:...

Book: Why aren't you happy? I thought you wanted characters that are quirky! And Viennese!

Aoife: Yeah...I'm just waiting for the crime to happen...it is a crime-novel after all.

Book: /heavy sighs/ you want't everything, don't you?

Aoife: just a crime-novel that deserves the name

Book: Blah. Triple-murder, wrong confession? Trial, jury?

Aoife: WHAT?

Book: Triple-murder

Aoife: No, I meant the jury-bit.

Book: What's the problem with that?

Aoife: In Austria juries are only used for crimes with a sentence between 5 and 10 years. I doubt triple-murder qualifies.

Book: I wasn't aware you're an expert on legislation in Austria.

Aoife: I just know about juries. You know when that Sherlock-webepisode aired where Sherlock shouted in German at a jury? Germany doesn't have juries at all so I googled if perhaps Austria or Switzerland have...not that the people sounded Austrian or Swiss but then they didn't really sound German either...anyway I'm digressing. A jury in a triple-murder trial sounds unlikely if not impossible.

Book: BUT LOOK AT THE QUIRKY CHARACTERS!

Aoife:...

Book: AND IT'S SO VIENNESE!

Aoife:..but...

Book: Schlagobers! Palatschinken! Kaffeehäuser!

Aoife: Don't change the subject.

Book: /loudly sings Rock Me Amadeus/

Aoife:...oh just forget it.
