Read full description of the books:
This is an old book and it shows. Racist, sexist, you name it. Japanese people behave like robots and talk constantly about honor and ancient tradition, oh and about this mainstay of Japanese culture, the yakuza (in the book spelled “yakusa” for some reason). One of the cop main characters is hit by his cat’s death more than by his girlfriend’s death, because women, you know… who cares? They are replaceable. Unless they are a “yakusa girl”, then the yakusa boss (who gets to be called daimyo) will protect her and thank you for saving her. Especially if you are a Dutch cop, who after some weeks spent in Japan does local things just like the Japanese (bathing and eating fish for example), and therefore considers himself Japanese.
The stuff that especially cracked me up: in a high-end restaurant, clients have to catch koi carps by themselves in the garden pond, and then the staff cooks them. SO refined.
Oh, and there is a black woman named Ahboombah, and Chinese guys wear pigtails. In the 70s. I know there was no internet back then, but seriously, come on.
