The Inspector and Silence (1997)
language
English
3.68 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: The most pointless, cliched, feebly-plotted murder mystery ever. Beautiful young girls brutally raped and strangled? Give me a break! The story unwinds at a snail's pace and after pointing the finger at the leader of the sect to which the girls belonged, of course our author pluc...
Människa utan hund (2006)

review 1: Pretty good book about the destructiveness of families. A couple of retired teachers invited their children to visit them in their small city. The visit ended with two murders - one of a son who embarrassed himself on national TV and was desperate enough to accept an invitation o...

review 1: Enjoyable (4th in series, which I am reading in order but perhaps it is less important with this series than with some). Old-fashioned police procedural (written in 1996, so it has taken a while to reach English translation). We know, more or less, who the murderer is from the be...
Komisarz i cisza (1997)

review 1: This one didn't seem as dark as some of the past installments. I do like how Nesser has his people solve the crimes...fishing, canoeing and eating ;) I can't say this one was much of a surprise to me - I thought the 'by chance' linking of the suspect due to a spelling error was...

review 1: Fifth of Hakan Nesser's Chief Inspector Van Veeteren detective series. The Chief Inspector contemplating retirement takes one final case. He must travel to a far off town to investigate the disappearance of a small girl that was living within a religious cult camp. Seemed to dra...

review 1: Il libro in se è interessante, la trama avvincente, il finale a sorpresa. Tutti gli ingredienti giusti per fare un buon romanzo giallo.Ma non ho potuto fare a meno di notare la notevole differenza tra questo libro e gli ultimi che ho letto di Vichi e Camilleri, dove la caratteriz...
Berättelse om herr Roos (2008)
language
English

review 1: Prachtig. Spanning (geen 'op het puntje van je stoel' soort spanning, maar meer een onderhuidse), humor, filosofische overpeinzingen, geloofwaardige karakters met diepgang, een boeiende verhaallijn...dit boek heeft het allemaal. Goed geschreven ook, het leest als een trein. Zwee...

review 1: THE WOMAN WITH A BIRTHMARK by Hakan Nesser is the fourth instalment in the series of crime novels set in the fictitious city of Maardam, featuring the previously a bit dark and brooding, but a very jolly and witty in this book, Inspector Van Veeteren. The novel starts with a fune...
Das zweite Leben des Herrn Roos (2008)
language
English
3.75 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Wenn man das Buch liest und einen typischen Krimi erwartet, wird man enttäuscht sein. Die erste Hälfte des Buchs besteht aus einer Charakterisierung der beiden Hauptpersonen, handlungsmäßig tut sich nicht allzu viel, bis nach über 200 Seiten der Kommissar und seine Kollegen ins S...
