Steppenwolf is a 1927 novel written by Hermann Hesse.

Harry Bosch read the book after briefly meeting his father, J. Michael Haller, in 1970, prior to joining the Los Angeles Police Department. Haller mentioned the book to Bosch because Bosch would have shared the name of Hesse's protagonist – Harry Haller – had he taken his father's surname.
