Bibliomysteries galore! Da es viele Buchreihen kriminalistischer Natur gibt, in denen Bibliothekarinnen (seltener Bibliothekare) in einer tragenden Rolle mitspielen, verdienen sie eine eigene Seite in meiner Bibliographie! Ein häufiges Motiv ist übrigens, dass sich Bibliothekarin und Polizist oder Bibliothekar und Polizistin im Laufe der Buchreihe näher kommen… Geordnet ist die Liste nach dem Namen der Reihe, in Klammer dahinter findet sich der Name der Autorin oder des Autors.

Nicht-bibliothekarische Krimireihen, bei denen in einzelnen Bänden Bibliothekar_innen vorkommen, oder bibliothekarische „Einzelkrimis“ werden in der allgemeinen Belletristik-Übersicht angezeigt. Verlage und Erscheinungsdaten fehlen zum Teil noch und werden demnächst ergänzt.

Im Mittelpunkt steht Hal Johnson, ein Polizist, der nach fünf Jahren bei der Mordkommission Bibliothekspolizist (library detective) geworden ist: „What I do is chase down stolen and overdue books for the public library. Most of my work is routine and unexciting – but every once in a while I run into something that adds pepper to an otherwise bland diet“. Denn Leute verstecken alles Mögliche in Bibliotheksbüchern, von Drogen über den Schlüssel zum Schließfach mit der Beute bis zum Testament. Und so wird man auch als Büchereinsammler mit Mord und Totschlag konfrontiert ;-) Diese unterhaltsame Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten ist als eBook in der Megapack-Reihe bei Wildside Press erschienen. „Fuzz“ ist übrigens ein veraltender Slang-Begriff für Polizei bzw. Polizisten.
