Peiting – She is known as a lively actress at the amateur stage in Peiting and as a cabaret artist in her solo programs such as “Gradraus” or “Stubenrein”;

During the Corona period, she also became a crime writer: I mean Alexandra Stiglmeier from Peiting.

"Men, Murder and Remmidemmi" is the name of the detective novel, whose 250 pages are easy to read.

A certain Elli Fuchs first finds a corpse on the base of a bathtub, then the culprit and finally a new friend. 

The 52-year-old from Peiting, who has already written one or two plays, will present her first novel in autumn 2022.

She is looking forward to the premiere reading.

It's on Thursday, October 6th at 7 p.m. at the "Zuckerl" in Peiting.

Admission is twelve euros.

Tickets can be ordered from the bookstore at the Bach by calling 08861/66212.


Alexandra Stiglmeier makes 42-year-old Elli Fuchs the protagonist in the thriller.

She would have liked to be a criminal.

But that didn't work.

She sells toilet lids, which is what Alexandra Stiglmeier did in real life because she works in a heating and plumbing shop.


Elli discovers a dead man under the base of the tub, bagged in a feed sack.

A mysterious case involving tragic family secrets comes to Elli's mind, in which she believes she absolutely must investigate.

If only it weren't for the Mardi Gras, the kids and that damn man hunt that complicates things unnecessarily.

For she has lost her own husband;

he took a much younger one.

Which is why Elli is back from the city to the Pfaffenwinkel in the fictional village of Engelsried.


But instead of an angel in the form of a new man, she finds a mummified corpse.

And that under a bathtub.

Since Elli must determine absolutely.

Something just keeps getting in her way.

For one, the carnival.

And on the other hand the blacksmith Lenz from the Kripo.

Of course, he has (a common adjective in the novel) a completely different theory about the murder, keeps showing up when Elli can't use him at all, and then grins so cheekily.

But Elli doesn't let that deter her at all and uncovers a village secret that would have been better left hidden.


Already in line two


Because the perpetrator - the whimper - who grumbles over the counter in line two of the novel, has even three corpses on the tally stick after many pages of enigmatic questions.

Author Alexandra Stiglmeier strikes an unmistakable tone;

he is like her with her character and her cabaret name "straight out" and close to home.


The thriller is published by Emons Verlag in Cologne.

The Rhinelanders think that Stiglmeier's Bavarian humor is profound and that her plot is "wonderfully weird".

She manages to sketch banal everyday situations and different personalities so aptly that the human comes to the fore and everyone can really recognize themselves in her stories.


Yes, "Männer, Mord und Remmidemmi" is not a strenuous thriller, but one in which you can often laugh at all the puzzling things.

An entertaining read.

At the end of the glossary, some hearty words from Bläschel (long tongue) to Zwiderwurzen (female person with a high degree of bitchyness) are translated.

On page 249, Alexandra Stiglmeier adds a small outlook in the last paragraph.

"Who knows what's coming.

Maybe Lenz and I will investigate together in the future,” she puts into Elli's mouth;

the (professional criminal) has become her new Gspusi and, in her opinion, fits perfectly "with my spring-colored bed linen".

What can be read from the lines about "determining together in the future"?

A sequel to the thriller seems quite possible.
