"When the bound, hooded corpse of an unidentified man is found propped up against a gravestone in the central cemetery, Axel Steen is assigned the case. Rogue camera footage soon suggests police involvement and links to the demolition of the nearby Youth House, teeming with militant far-left radicals. But Axel soon discovers that many people, both inside and out of the force, have an unusual interest in the case and in preventing its resolution. With a rapidly worsening heart condition, an estranged ex-wife and beloved five-year-old daughter to contend with, Axel will not stop until the killer is caught, whatever the consequences. But the consequences turn out to be greater than expected - especially for Axel himself."--Publisher's description.… (mais)

The first novel in a five-volume police procedural series, Unrest, was published originally in 2012 to acclaim in Denmark. Now available in English, it’s an atmospheric mystery that combines a complex homicide investigation with the vivid backdrop of a major riot in the multi-ethnic Nørrebro district.

Axel Steen is called in to begin investigating a homicide in his own neighborhood. A body has been found in a tranquil cemetery on a night when there’s another pitched battle between police and autonomists (a Marxist-flavored form of anarchism). A squat in Nørrebro, the Youth House, had become a center of political resistance. When the police shut it down, it has caused nights of rioting. (The novel is set in 2007 and while the murder is fictional, the vivid setting draws on real events.)

At first glance, it seems the murder may be the result of police violence. The dead man is wearing an autonomist’s balaclava and shows signs of being beaten badly. Two police officers who had been dispatched to guard the cemetery are being suspiciously evasive about a crime that must have occurred right under their noses. But the victim is older than most of the anti-capitalist youth activists and he has a double-headed eagle tattoo – the symbol of Albania. From the cemetery, Axel spots a camera on a balcony that may have filmed the murder, but before he can recover it, someone has spirited it away. That’s the start of a complex story that involves deported immigrants, a drug gang, a left-wing journalist with an ax to grind, Danish security services, and civil unrest.

In some ways, Axel Steen is a familiar figure. He’s addicted to work, has an independent streak that puts him in conflict with his bosses, and has a completely dysfunctional home life. His divorce has been bitter, though he still carries a torch for his ex that tends to erupt into flaming arguments. He adores his five-year-old daughter but has trouble making time for her, taking her with him to the morgue because he can’t organize child care or let go of a work commitment. He has a heart condition that worries him, but he neglects his health. His most original characteristic is the contradictory position he occupies in Copenhagen.

The setting is wonderfully rendered. Nørrebro is a vivid mix of counter-cultural bohemianism and 21st century Europe, being the most ethnically diverse part of Copenhagen as well as the site of a historic cemetery where Danish luminaries, including Søren Kirkegaard, Hans Christen Anderson, and Niels Bohr, are buried. A journalist tells Steen with amusement that he is the only cop who lives there, yet he seems to feel at home in a place where the walls are tagged with “fuck the police.” He’s a cop’s cop in some ways – he still bears a grudge about a 1993 riot in the same neighborhood when he was a young officer – but when fellow officers disparage the residents he defends them, despising their bigotry. He’s a fitting representation of contemporary Denmark, a febrile mix of contradictions. He’s also willing to go the distance to solve a crime, even if it turns out truth and love and incompatible. Our last glimpse of our protagonist is a bit noir, a bit touching, and gives something of the flavor of the book:



Jesper Stein is a journalist, critic, and novelist. The next book in the five-book series is titled Blackbird. The television rights have been acquired by the producers of The Bridge.

Unrest – A riot through Copenhagen

Being woken up in the middle of the night by headquarters, was never nice as it meant there was a fresh corpse for him to look at. Detective Axel Steen, not the most popular detective in Copenhagen, but the one that was the most terrier like when he was on a case. Fortunately for Stein the body was not far from his apartment and was in the cemetery.

The Norrebro district where he lives, is a bohemian district of Copenhagen and had been on fire for most of the day. This all due to the police raid on the Youth House and all the violence that followed. So, when Stein got to the cemetery past all the smoke-filled barriers and resting police, is a dead body that looks like another left- wing protester.

The body is eventually identified, which leads to more questions than answers, while drawing him into the heart of the Copenhagen drugs trade, the Balkans and the Security Police. With nobody seemingly trusting Steen, he is slowly side-lined and ends up working the investigation his own way, but on his own.

The investigation seems to be going off in different tangents, but Steen is not afraid to step back and look at all the information available. Like a jigsaw puzzle without a picture, Steen is the one who slowly pieces everything together. Even if it does mean going out on a limb.

Like any defective detective Axel Steen is not only the problem child of the Police Service, but the problem child with his ex-wife and his daughter. He has relationship problems that get him into trouble, before you count his dependency on hash. He is in the middle of a personal crisis, a career crisis, but he does not care he wants to solve the case and he will.

Jesper Stein has created a wonderfully defective character in Axel Steen, that even when things are going wrong around him he carries on. Set with a background of the bohemian district, you get a flavour of part of Copenhagen not often seen by the tourist.

This is an engrossing read, showing that even the countries that are seen as sensible Europeans have an underbelly which is always willing to fight back. An excellent thriller that shows you not everything in Denmark is nice and shiny, but dark and gritty.

An excellent addition to the Scandi Noir Oeuvre. ( )

Unruhe: Der erste Fall für Kommissar Steen
erschienen 2013 im KiWi-Taschenbuchverlag, 480 Seiten


Kurzbeschreibung

»Ein Debüt, das in die oberste Krimi-Liga gehört.« Lokalavisen

Axel Steen, Ermittler im Kopenhagener Morddezernat, wird von einer inneren Unruhe getrieben. Die panische Angst, sein Herz könne plötzlich aufhören zu schlagen, hält ihn Nacht für Nacht wach. Von der Fensterbank seiner Altbauwohnung blickt er über die Straßen von Nørrebro, dem Künstler-, Drogen- und Rotlichtviertel Kopenhagens. Als während der Unruhen um die Zwangsräumung und den Abriss des Jugendzentrums eine Leiche gefunden wird, fällt der Verdacht zunächst auf die Einsatzkräfte der Polizei. Denn die »grüne Lunge« des Viertels war während des Räumungseinsatzes von den Ordnungskräften abgeriegelt worden. Hat die Polizei einen der jungen Leute aus dem Jugendzentrum einfach kaltgemacht? Steen gerät unter Druck. Bald jagt er nicht nur einen Mörder durch das von Rauchbomben vernebelte Nørrebro, sondern muss selbst um sein Leben kämpfen. Offenbar ist der Fall für einen von ständiger Todesangst geplagten Ermittler der Mordkommission eine Nummer zu groß …


Über den Autor

Jesper Stein ist Journalist und arbeitete als Kriminalreporter in Kopenhagen. 2008 erschien sein Bestseller über Bent Isager-Nielsen, den Leiter der Sektion 1, dem dänischen Pendant zum FBI. Das Buch erklärt u.a., warum Dänemark die weltweit höchste Aufklärungsrate bei Mordfällen aufweisen kann. Jesper Stein lebt seit 1992 in Nørrebro, ist verheiratet und hat zwei Kinder. Unruhe ist sein Debüt als Krimiautor.


Meine Meinung

Der Krimi Unruhe spielt sich in Dänemark, genauer gesagt in Kopenhagen, ab. Der Ermittler Axel Steen ist hier der Protagonist. Immer wieder liest man, das Axel Angst davor hat, das plötzlich sein Herz aufhört zu schlagen oder er einen Herzinfarkt erleidet. Ziemlich oft ließ er ein EKG über sich ergehen. Getrennt lebend von seiner Frau kümmert er sich tageweise um seine Tochter.

Axel Steen scheint nicht einfach zu sein. Er ermittelt eigenständig und riskiert so manches mal seinen Rausschmiss. Im Laufe des Buches wird er immer mehr vom Fall abgezogen. Um was es genau geht, beschreibt die Inhaltsangabe recht gut.

Ich hatte auf den ersten Seiten Probleme ins Buch zu kommen. Der Schreibstil war anfangs ungewohnt und der Protagonist Axel Steen gefiel mir nicht sonderlich. Mit der Zeit ließ sich für mich das Buch flüssiger lesen und ab der Hälfte fand ich es zunehmend interessanter. Bis zur letzten Seiten konnte ich mich mit der direkten Art von Axel Steen nicht anfreunden.

Da es sich hier um den ersten Fall des Kommissar handelt, folgen sicher noch weitere Bände über Axel Steen.

Dem Buch vergebe ich 7 Punkte. Nach Startproblemen ließ es sich recht gut lesen. ( )
