Groner, Augusta: Joe Muller Detective Omnibus, v.1, 20 Feb 2008.
‘Being the Account of Some Adventures in the Professional Experience of a Member of the Imperial Austrian Police.’
This detective observes human behaviour closely and absorbs atmosphere to draw his conclusions but is also capable of using disguise and subterfuge. There is some slight similarity with the detective novels of Friedrich Glauser and a distant resemblance to Simenon’s Maigret.
By Frau Augusta Groner, née Koppalik (1850-1929), who was a Viennese author who sometimes appeared under the more masculine pseudonym of August or Auguste Groner.
Frau Groner’s work has been translated and adapted by Grace Isabel Colbron (1869-1948). Her contribution seems to include removing every single umlaut from the text, including that in the author’s surname.
I came across these titles in PG, thought that they looked interesting, so collected them in an omnibus because they are relatively short pieces. (They have also been published in print as an omnibus according to Google Books.) The PG text is rather faulty and I have made a number of corrections.
The Case of the Lamp That Went Out
The Case of the Registered Letter
