The Judge and His Hangman by FRIEDRICH DURRENMATT abridged in five parts by NEVILLE TELLER
Read by Bernard Hepton (1) No ordinary case, when a policeman is murdered. No ordinary case, when the suspect is a highly respected diplomat. No ordinary case, when the man in charge of it is the slow-footed, quick-witted Inspector Barlach of the Berne Police. Extraordinary, when he has only a short while to live and a formidable wager to win at the same time.
