By way of light (if slightly grim) relief, Natsuo Kirino’s wonderful crime novel called Die Umarmung des Todes in German (apparently translated into German earlier) and Out in English. Four women workers on the night shift at a lunchbox (bento) factory find themselves disposing of a body when one of them kills her husband. Almost totally convincing, whatever the summaries sound like, and gripping. Kirino has written many novels, but this appears to be the only one translated into German or English. (I see some of the German reviews call the boxed lunches Lunchpakete).
