Blood Eagle

Blood EagleThe last crime novels I read set in Hamburg were Cay Rademacher s Inspector Stave books set in the devastation and deprivation of the immediate aftermath of Germany s defeat in WWII, so I was very interested to try Craig Russell s Jan Faber series, a modern era take on crime and punishment in the city Interestingly, Russell is a Scot, author of the Lennox crime novels set in Glasgow, my home town Both cities have a certain reputation and don t appear automatically in lists of places people want to visit I am intrigued by this novel s mix of gruesome serial murder, multinational crime syndicates, mythology, politics and history It fits in, too, with my current preoccupation with Germany I recently watched on Walter Presents from More4 Nick s Law featuring Til Shweiger as Nikolas Schiller, a Hamburg policeman who uses unorthodox methods against underworld criminal gangs in the city, a German Dirty Harry, part of German TVs long running Tatort series So I have some familiarity going in to the Jan Fabel books, which helps with terminology and suchlike Some common themes, too, I can see already.I m not far into the novel but it seems odd Fabel and his colleagues have never encountered the blood eagle before their current murder investigation Or does my familiarity with the concept derive from an unhealthy interest in serial killer fiction and historical novels featuring Vikings that s not widely shared Jan Fabel is an interesting character, known as the English detective for his mixed Scottish Craig Russell is making a dig here, one all Scots have a sensitivity to, and I speak as one and German parentage He has the usual broken marriage and guilt about how his job interferes with his personal life He s good at it, though, the job that is A clever and intuitive detective I look forward to getting to know him better.Finished the book today Very much enjoyed it, though sensitive readers might find the violence and gore too much The ending is abrupt and seems like a setup for the sequel Or perhaps it s just ambiguous and open to readers interpretation There was one particular twist seemed so obvious to me it made Jan Fabel appear too slow for a supposed clever detective, especially since he s half Scottish Anyway, the climax is tense and exciting, and I like how Russell brings his narrative threads together It s much than a typical serial killer novel, exploring right wing mythology and the way charismatic leaders can manipulate others to their will A good start to a series I will definitely be continuing to read Also, I really want to visit Hamburg now I ve actually had the pleasure of writing the German TV adaptation for this novel Did I like the novel you bet I like dark and twisted, I like grisly and Craig s delivered on that and ever so much He s created, with Hauptkommissar Jan Fabel of the Hamburg police, a truly iconic cop A man in the middle of life, a good man, for once not a torn, broken or morally corrupt cop he s a good man, all around, thoughtful, smart of course , always tries to think of everyone The novelist loves Hamburg, and that love is beautifully woven into the pages If you ve never been to Hamburg after reading this novel you ll want to explore it.The case, as all of Jan Fabel s cases, is steeped in Northern mythology I absolutely love that In this and subesquent Fabel tales, there s always an additional layer of murky, dark myth riding along In Blood Eagle the myth is Viking in Origin, but Craig makes it highly relevant when he illiminates that Northern Hamburg was no than a stone s throw from the Vikings A bloody Viking ritual, an elusive serial killer, a dark Nazi past linked with it all there s several layers of dark mystery to unravel until Fabel ends the reign of the Blood Eagle killer. En Muerte En Hamburgo, Craig Russell Nos Presenta A Un Nuevo Detective, Jan Fabel, Mitad Escoces, Mitad Aleman, Un Hombre Con Consciencia E Imaginacion Russell Ha Creado Tambien Un Escenario Rico En Texturas, Donde La Ciudad De Hamburgo Juega Un Rol Central, Una Ciudad Llena De Contrastes Y Sombras En La Primera De Seis Novelas Planificadas Y Desarrolladas En La Ciudad Alemana De Hamburgo, El Hauptkommissar Jan Fabel Investiga Una Serie De Violentos Asesinatos En Todas Las Victimas, Los Pulmones Han Sido Extraidos De Los Cuerpos, Imitando Asi, Un Antiguo Rito Vikingo Mientras Fabel Avanza En La Investigacion, Va Quedando Claro Que Se Trata De Algo Mucho Mas Complejo Que El Trabajo De Un Simple Psicopata Esta Sucediendo Una Historia Compleja Y Extraordinariamente Desarrollada Muerte En Hamburgo Invoca El Moderno Mundo Criminal De Hamburgo, A La Industria Del Sexo Y Actividades Terroristas Del Pasado Y Del Presente Desde que termine de leer El aspecto del Diablo, quer a leer m s de este autor, realmente me gust mucho su estilo y no me ha decepcionado.Es verdad que este libro es completamente diferente al que he comentado en su g nero y la manera en que el autor plantea toda la historia, tambi n es verdad que ah est la inteligencia literaria que vi en el otro libro, un estilo limpio, pero sobre todo con una buena historia y con un personaje protag nico cre ble y fuerte.Me ha encantado, lo he disfrutado mucho, me ha gustado sobre todo la manera en que se ha ido desarrollando toda la investigaci n de los asesinatos donde Craig Russell juega con muchos temas adem s de los obvios.El libro est ubicado en Hamburgo y adem s de presentar una serie de asesinatos basados en ciertas creencias paganas, el autor toca temas pol ticos y sociales importantes en Alemania, corrupci n policial, mafias que manejan el tr fico de drogas, pero sobre todo la forma en que la fuerza pol tica y de seguridad tienen que andar con pies de plomo pues todav a tienen que manejar temas de neonazismo en la Alemania actual y con traumas del pasado nazi en la sociedad de ese pa s.Creo que el autor que a pesar de no ser Alem n ha manejado el tema de manera muy inteligente y perfectamente documentado.Sin embargo no me ha gustado el final de este libro, tengo que leer el segundo para saber si la manera en que ha terminado este libro es debido a que en la segunda entrega hay alg n tipo de continuaci n de esta historia, ha dejado algunos cosas abiertas, sin ep logo para saber qu ha pasado con eso, personalmente no me gusta eso, pero a este autor se lo voy a perdonar porque el libro ha valido la pena muy a pesar del final que tiene Ein Serienm rder, dessen Taten anscheinend nicht nur einem kranken Geist entspringen, der von altnordischer Mythologie inspiriert ist, sondern die auch zunehmend in Verbindung zu stehen scheinen mit politischer Intrige Ein undurchschaubares Spiel vom BND, der der Kriminalpolizei gegen ber offensichtlich Informationen zur ckh lt Und ein B rgermeister, dessen Rolle ebenfalls fraglich ist die Hamburger Kripo hat es nicht gerade leicht bei der Aufkl rung der Taten Und als sich herausstellt, dass offensichtlich auch noch das organisierte Verbrechen um eine ukrainische Bande mit im Spiel ist, ger t so manches aus den Fugen.Aus den Fugen ger t am Ende leider auch die Geschichte Das Ende konnte mich nicht berzeugen und hat mich ziemlich entt uscht Au erdem benehmen sich die Personen teilweise recht merkw rdig, und man m chte ihnen zuschreien Warum bist du so bl d Aber davon abgesehen ist es interessant, daher gebe ich noch drei Sterne. Goed geschreven Voortreffelijk voorgelezen in het Duits Spannend maar wel een beetje bloederig. Spielt in Hamburg Das man deutsche Berufsbezeichnungen verwendet ist ok I m sorry, Herr Kriminalhauptkommissar aber einfach random deutsche W rter einstreuen st rt den Lesefluss Schwimmhalle, Kanne oder K sebrot kann man auch bersetzen K asebrot alter Amazing journey thrue the mind of the killers..I think i ve become fan of this writer sometime thrue this book, the first book from him that i ve read, but i hope its not the last one Me ha encantado este libro de Craig Russell con el comisario Jan Fabel ubicado en Hamburgo No s si habr sido por la historia, que atrapa y mucho, por los di logos, absolutamente naturales, por la recreaci n de los hechos, sobrecogedores al m ximo, por los protagonistas o por la maravillosa ciudad de Hamburgo, que conozco y me trae muy buenos recuerdos, que este primer libro de la serie me ha gustado much simo Por ponerle alg n pero, dir a que a algunos se les podr a hacer pesado el excesivo uso de t rminos en alem n, sobre todo si se desconoce el idioma Por lo dem s, muy recomendable. Sometimes, it s very frustrating being a clever clogs Or perhaps just someone who reads too much This is a brilliant crime novel so far , but, gosh, they need me on this case Women discovered cracked open and with their lungs displayed Police have no clue Errblood eagle UmVikings Does anyone seriously not know this sort of stuff And then a victim half remembers men with strange smooth faces all with one eye oh, come on Vikings plus one eyed menThink about it Odin ODIN the God of the Vikings They were wearing Odin masks Sigh Shouting at books doesn t do any good I ve discovered It doesn t help that the guy with this incredible lack of knowledge about anything is the main detective Jan Fabel and he s supposed to have a degree in history And he s a book collector Clearly not ones that have actual information in them But I m being a bit disingenuous I m about 25% into this exceptional crime novel and absolutely loving it This is a series I ll definitely pursue As ever, I ll complete this review when I m done.Finished Well, that kept up the high energy excitement right to the end This is an excellent crime novel Other than being ludicrously PC, which to be honest I m coming to expect in every single novel these days, I highly recommend this first in the Jan Fabel series I can t vouch for the authenticity of the setting in the Hamburg police force, but the novel is packed with background and facts about the whole post War German situation although this interesting fleshing out never comes over as laboured This was gory, exciting, and very well written Recommended.
