A general method for constructing exactly solvable fermion determinants is discussed. A two-dimensional determinant is solved exactly. A new class of four-dimensional fermion models is presented. These theories are non-renormalizable yet the fermion determinant can be calculated and there is an analogue of the Adler-Bell-Jackiw anomaly.
