    The Man Bringing Hardboiled Mystery Novels to Israel

    When you think of Israeli fiction, you probably don’t think of hardboiled mysteries—you know, the hard-edged, alcohol-soaked whodunits writers like Hammett and Chandler built an institution out of.

    Dror Mishani is interested in changing that. The Israeli author and literature professor has already published three detective novels which have been translated into English, all of which feature a chain-smoking Mizrahi detective named Avraham Avraham. While Mishani’s work is indebted to the detective novel canon, he’s interested in subverting expectation as well: his protagonist, for instance, is a bit of a tragic optimist, who “believes everyone is innocent.”
