Greed is the story of Kurt Janisch, an ambitious but frustrated country policeman, and the lonely women he seduces. It is a thriller set amid the mountains and small towns of southern Austria, where the investigation of a dead girl’s body in a lake leads to the discovery of more than a single crime. In her signature style, Jelinek chronicles the exploitative nature of relations between men and women, and the cruelties of everyday life.
“Jelinek gives us a starling glimpse…of what women are, as well as answering Freud’s question, ‘What do women want?’ It is neither gentle nor sweet nor safe nor reasonable — just true.” — Lucy Ellmann, The Guardian (UK)
