Meet Attila Ambrus, the Robin Hood of Eastern Europe. He’s the one-time pelt smuggler professional hockey goalie, Zamboni driver, roulette addict, whiskey drinker, and native of Transylvania who’s decided that the best thing to do is to rob as many banks as possible. His rival: Lajos Varju, whose knowledge of police work comes from Hungarian-dubbed episodes of “Columbo.” Here’s an uproariously funny and unforgettable account of crime in the heart of the new Europe. With a supporting cast that includes car wash owners, drunk army generals, and a hockey team that seems to spend as much time breaking the law as it does practicing, this book gives us a charming outlaw-hero. “A story so outrageous that it could only be true.” Photos.
