Mit den Ermittlern – und erscheint unbegreiflicher und unberechenbarer als je zuvor Was ist damals in der Bretagne wirklich passiert Und warum bekommt ausgerechnet Inspektor Barbarotti die BriefeIm zweiten Buch um Gunnar Barbarotti „Eine ganz andere Geschichte” begegnen wir erneut dem geläuterten Zweifler und Gott herausfordernden Mann den wir bereits im Kriminalroman „Mensch ohne Hund” kennengelernt haben Seine Berufskarriere erscheint ihm immer dubioser während sein Privatleben plötzlich völlig neue Perspektiven aufweis.
S in a decent translation Nesser is an author known for his special writing style which attributes a uniue iterary touch to all of his work Apart from that Nesser is known for the creation of the famous fictitious city of Mardaam featuring in all Van Veeteren books and also in his recent novel Intrigo In the Barbarotti series though we are introduced to another purely fictional town that of Kymlinge The Southern Belles of Honeysuckle Way located somewhere in SwedenFor my full review visit Didn t finish maybe one day I don tike crime novels It s just not my thing they re usually too shallowly focused on solving a half witted crime and the characters aw geez don t get me started on the charactersBut this one is different This one is a crime novel for people ike me the crime is of course ever present but there s MORE to the novel than just that And that makes Barbarotti a whole crime novel protagonist than I ve ever read before Plus of course I m having oads of fun with the way Nesser handles his The Confident Woman: How to Take Charge and Recharge Your Life language the uirks of his storytelling and noteast Barbarottis relationship with God I commented on someone elses review of this book here on GoodReads yesterday a person who found the ending of this book to be a desperate way out of a corner At that point I hadn t finished the novel and couldn t comment on the ending but now I have and I have to say I find it elegant and well in par with the rest of the book The only trouble right now is the ast VERY LAST cliffhanger and I don t have the next book at hand gaspSo if you don t ike crime novels but still want some easy entertaining reading do try H kan Nesser and do by all means try this one I have ong been a fan of Hakan Nesser He is the first of several Scandinavian mystery writers that I began reading several years ago I read his works avidly along He is different though comparable to Jo Nesbo Henning Mankell Arnuldur Indridasson and Jussi Adler Olson This book and his new detective Barbarotti does not disappoint The mystery is well crafted and the end as far as I was concerned was a complete shockerI strongly recommend this book to any fan of mysteries and police procedurals and especially to those who are fans of the Scandinavian mystery genre Worth reading if you are ooking for an easy read crime police. En ein paar vereinzelte Fotos womöglich ein Gruppenbild das ein oder andere Auarell – und ein anonymes Tagebuch das ihre Eskapaden schildert wie sich später herausstellen wird als die Tragödie bereits ihren Lauf genommen hat Denn fünf Jahre später beginnt jemand sie zu töten einen nach dem anderen wobei die Morde Gunnar Barbarotti Inspektor in Kymlinge jeweils zuvor brieflich angekündigt werden Der Fall erregt große Aufmerksamkeit in den Medien die Polizei steht naturgemäß unter Druck Der Mörder indes spielt Katz und Maus.
