Book Description

Wishing to return to his peaceful life and spend more time with his girlfriend, coroner Martin Gänsewein wants nothing more than to rid himself of his foulmouthed undead sidekick, Pascha. Unfortunately, such things are easier said than done. When bodies at the local cemetery begin to turn up sans organs, Martin and Pascha are once again forced into partnership to solve the case. With the stakes higher and body count greater, Martin realizes he has no hope of ever finding solace until he solves one last crime.

Picking up where Morgue Drawer Next Door left off, this third chapter in the gruesomely hilarious crime-solving saga delves deeper into the relationship between Martin and Pascha and is sure to please fans of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Spirit Within Us November 8, 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It was not until this book arrived, that I discovered that this was not the run of the mill mystery. I was a little apprehensive that this kind of novel would be too cute and fussy. However, by the end of the first chapter I was hooked. This is the third in a series of morgue mystery/thrillers, but it is a stand alone book.

The author, Jutta Profijt, went to visit a morgue and the unusual surroundings gave birth to a series of books taking place in a morgue in Cologne, Germany. The spirit of a man, Pasha, an ex-car thief and ladies man, hangs out at the Institute for Forensic Medicine. For some reason this morgue feels home to him, and he wasn't forced to leave. He can see the other spirits arrive and leave for destinations unknown. Besides, he has a friend, Martin, the coroner. Poor Martin is the only human who can hear Pasha, and though he has grown fond of Pasha, he is not the type who wants a spirit living near him. Pasha, however, turns out to be a terrific partner in investigation. He is able to lead Martin to places no one else can see. The downside is that Pasha wants to inhabit Martin's life, and that is not OK. Martin tries every devious trick to get Pasha to leave, to no avail. Martin and his girlfriend, Birgit, who has no idea that Pasha exists, are stuck with this spirit.

We get to know Martin's colleagues at the morgue. All of them have characteristics we find fun and irritating. Katrin, is the closest to Martin. Smart and beautiful, she has no love for their new boss, 'Piggy Bank'. His only mission is to save money and in the meantime makes life a little miserable. It is his idea to rent out the morgue drawers to pull in some money. There are many adventures in this novel, some are amusing and others a little less so.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the prime of his afterlife, Pasha falls in love October 2, 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the third book in the series featuring Pasha, the spirit who hangs out at the Institute for Forensic Medicine in Cologne. He can only communicate with one living being, the coroner Martin Gänsewein. Poor Martin isn't very happy about the voice he hears inside his head, Martin being a principled, clean-living, nerdy vegetarian and Pasha being an unprincipled, foul-mouthed ex-car thief. But despite their total incompatibility, they make a great investigative team.

There's a new director at the institute who's obsessed with increasing efficiency and cutting costs. This is a timely theme nowadays when number crunchers are taking over the management of all sorts of businesses and services they know nothing about. The new director's income-generating policies are pretty funny, like deciding to rent out morgue drawers to funeral homes.

Under new management, alarming things start happening at the Institute. Bodies are kidnapped. Corpses are mutilated. A coroner is attacked. It falls to Pasha to figure out what's going on, since he can whoosh around wherever he pleases and spy on people unseen.

Meanwhile Pasha has fallen in love with the granddaughter of the new night watchman. To see the normally lecherous Pasha revel in "pure, radiant, incandescent love" is endlessly amusing. After all, it's not easy for an electromagnetic wave to court a flesh-and-blood woman in another dimension.

Pasha is full of surprises in this book. He's become very knowledgeable about autopsy procedures. And he's growing less selfish. He's beginning to see Martin as a friend, not just a useful connection to the realm of the living. Pasha might even be willing to put Martin's happiness before his own.

Pasha is the most original amateur detective I've encountered in recent memory. I just hope he won't mature too much. I'd hate to lose him to the White Light. I want more books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow, Slow Start, But It Gets There. October 11, 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
MORGUE DRAWER FOR RENT by Jutta Profijt gets off to a slow start with pages of backstory. Near page 150 the story picks up with some interesting twists. What seems obvious from the beginning isn't what you assumed in the first place.
Pasha is a fun protagonist who as a ghost can only communicate earthwise with Martin Gansewein. Martin is not mentally equipped to handle the advent of a ghost in his life, but relies on Pasha unique abilities to find out what is happening.
Good read, but remember it takes a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third time remains a charm. June 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Once again, our dead but alive Pascha uses his skills in helping coroner Dr. Martin Gansewein solve some crimes. Of course, in doing so he also sticks his nose into Martin's private life. This is the third in the series and the storytelling still remains fresh.

This time around we have some bureaucratic bungling (imagine that) mixed in with a fluctuating body count. The book description above is woefully inadequate, but to tell much more would be to tell too much. If you like humorous mysteries, albeit with real crimes, blood and real life situations, then this series is for you. Start with Morgue Drawer Four; then move on to Morgue Drawer Next Door and on to this one. While waiting for the next in this series (at least I hope there will be more), check out Profijt's Dust Angel.

The translations by Erik Macki are very well done. He brings the English speakers into the story without writing the German setting out. It all flows seamlessly.

This is an interesting book - somewhat of a different style, but a fun, quick read. Still a mystery (my favorite), but with a twist.
