Im Winter der Löwen

E 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 pursue. 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

This author just appeals to me in the story line of his protagonist who is in perpetual mourning for his wife investigating crimes in Finland It has the right amount of darkness about the story yet it is not trite or depressing He is up there in my book with others like Nesbo and p d james as an author whose books I happily anticipate

This is the third book I ve read by Wagner after Ice Moon and Silence and it s just as brooding and grief haunted as the first two an aspect which perfectly suits Wagner s wounded detective Kimmo Joentaa Wagner has been called the anti writer of pop literature I m not sure what that means but it s true that his crime novels are eccentric even by Scandinavian standards Maybe it s because Wagner is German and his novels are set in Finland Whatever the reason I enjoy the offbeat abstract uality that makes them meditations than mysteries The Winter of the Lions features a charming talk show host and a confused stricken woman bent on metaphysical revenge There s also a willowy gay puppeteer who of course is s

    I cannot believe firstly that I've left the last two books in this series unread for so long and secondly I'd be daft enough to read the third THE WINTER OF THE LIONS out of order Not that it made a lot of difference to the experience It's hard to use the word enjoyable when you're referring to any of the books by Jan Costin Wagner as they are so steeped in grief and brooding although there was just a glimmer that Kimmo Joentaa m

    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 nicel

    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
