review Im Winter der Löwen 100

Jan Costin Wagner · 0 review

Ns up on his doorstepNot long afterwards two men are found murdered one of whom is Joentaa's colleague a forensic pathologist When it becomes clear that both victims had recently been guests on Finland's most famous talk show Kimmo is called upon to use all his powers of intuition and instinct t. I loved this book I loved the writer I didn t know it s another volume in a Kimmo Joentaa series this doesn t diminish it s worth one bit It s not a procedural police story and nothing wrong footing the reader will be revealed in the end The pleasure one gets from this book comes from the crude and honest portrayal of the characters crude in that descriptive words barely make their presence which fits nicely on the winter atmosphere of Finland Honest in that the ideas that take shape in someone s head are rarely linearly connected nor does their formulation into words makes them meaningful I didn t mention the plot in my review because it doesn t matter Which is why I will buy another book from this writer his rendering of the conscience of the characters is what interests me

The author s careful use of language and his ability to create nuanced characters made for an intriguing read The short chapters helped make this a well paced book though it didn t always have the dramatic tension reuired to really keep the story taut and moving One difficulty I had with this story is that sometimes a character was referred to by his or her first name and sometimes by his or her second This became a bit confusing There again this may have been because the names are in a language very different from my own Perhaps best described as a psychological thriller this book is well worth reading

O solve the case Meanwhile the killer is lying in wait ready to strike againIn Kimmo Joentaa prizewinning author Jan Costin Wagner has created a lonely hero in the Philip Marlowe mould who uses his unusual gifts for psychological insight to delve deep inside the minds of the criminals he pursues. My first try with this author and it wasn t bad Basically a Scandinavian noir cosy if there is such a thing Detective Kimmo Joentaa and his Finnish colleagues work the case when two people who appeared on the same crime re creation show are murdered Some very short chapters which I usually don t like but they certainly worked here to propel the slow but well paced story about loss grief and starting over

    A surprising murder mysteryA series of actions which appear to have no connection begin this Finnish murder mystery The reader is led on and kept in suspense until he realises the tenuous connections have a focus and you want to read on A bit of an indictment on today's media though A very good read
