Bio
Petros Markaris born in Istanbul is a Greek writer well known for his series of detective novels starring the grumpy Athenian police investigator Costas Haritos.Before he began to write he studied national economy. Later he wrote several plays and cooperated with Theo Angelopoulos on a number of film scripts. He translated several German dramas into Greek such as Goethe"s Faust I and Faust II, as well as Brecht"s Mother Courage. The Costas Haritos series of books (five novels and one collection of short stories, as of 2009) are very popular in several European countries such as Greece, Germany, Italy and Spain. Their main hero and first person narrator is a detective in the Athenian criminal police in his fifties, with a squabbling, fairly uneducated, and TV-addicted, but dearly loved wife, an aspiring, but stubborn, law student daughter, and an unpleasant, brown-nosing boss.He is not the expected mysterious and extremely charming detective one can find in most dedective novels. He is an everyday Greek full of guilt, deeply emotional and through his stories the read discovers the controversial nature of life in Athens today.
