Autobiography for Quais du Polar

I would probably have liked to be a lawyer. Or a policeman. Private detective. Becoming a judge would certainly have pleased me. Exercise as a shrink, to study humans. Robber, killer, in my dark moments. In the end I prefer to write, to be a little of everything at the same time.
