Already a huge star in Europe and the Nordic countries, Kjell Eriksson has American critics also raving, with almost every review studded with words like "stunning," "chilling," "suspenseful," "haunting," and "brilliant." InThe Demon of Dakar, Ann Lindell and her motley crew of colleagues are faced with a most baffling murder case in which all clues lead straight back to a popular local restaurant named Dakar. The owner, Slobodan Andersson, has some shady connections in his past, and his partner's reputation is equally murky. The kitchen crew is not above suspicion, either. The meat chef is an oddball, to say the least, while unbeknownst to the rest, the newest hire's personal life is a tangled web of lies. Even Eva Willman, the seemingly blameless older woman returning to the workforce as a waitress, has skeletons in her closet. And then the tension rachets up a number of notches as it becomes apparent that one murder has not satisfied the killer in the least. If Ann is to prevent a bloodbath at Restaurant Dakar, she must match wits with a killer whose motives are seemingly completely obscure. But the reader knows the killer well. His crimes are justified from his point of view. Not only that, he's a very likable fellow who is only looking for justice. As in all of Kjell Eriksson's compelling spellbinders, though, justice entails a frantic race to the finish, a race without rules and fraught with danger. Winner of the Swedish Academy Award for Best Crime Novel.… (mais)

The Demon of Dakar was my introduction to the Ann Lindell series. I was surprised to get through the first CD before Ann came onstage, but the multiple third-person viewpoints sorted themselves out. The threads started to come together. I was sympathetic to the plight of Manuel, the only one of three Mexican brothers who had sense enough to turn down the offer to smuggle drugs. One of his brothers died fleeing arrest. The other is in a Swedish prison.

I had no sympathy for the partners who hired Manuel's brothers and was actively hoping they'd get theirs.

Eva, the divorced mother who has been laid off from her postmistress job and has two teenaged sons to support, was another appealing character in the case.

The reader knows who is doing what and gets to wonder if and how much Ann Lindell and the other police investigating will catch on, let alone catch the villains. It is a bit amusing when they come to incorrect conclusions.

The more I listened, the more I rooted for Manuel and his surviving brother. The manhunt scenes became intense.

Although I could have done without the epilogue, I enjoyed this book. Mr. Strozier's narration suited the tone. ( )

READ IN DUTCH

I saw this book in the library and as I'm always in for a new author, I thought I would give this book a try.



I was very disappointed by this book. I usually really like Scandinavian detectives, but this one wasn't working for me, unfortunately. I found the plot, if present, not really interesting and the story in itself wasn't very credible either.



I've heard though that this is considered one of his weakest novels, so perhaps I was just unlucky when choosing this book. However, I'm don't plan to read any more of his books in the near future.

While I was at the library picking up the book club book, I grabbed a few more by Eriksson, the author of The Princess of Burundi. This has the same team of police officers, this time led by Ann Lindell actively and takes place in Uppsala but includes a multi-national cast. The initial introduction of characters was very confusing but it soon settled in. Perhaps settled in too much because it began to drag out in the middle and then suddnely went on a roaring tear to the finish. When NOBODY figured out the crime. Then there was a truly strange epilouge. It was still a good read but not as good as Burundi. One more by him to see if he's worth hunting up more.

A typical Eriksson effort; sprawling, confused, confusing, without a meaningful ending. Don't bother ( )

So ich bin durch, ich hatte zwischendrin in dem Buch einen Hänger, irgendwie war da nichts los oder zuviel oder einfach nur zäh.
So richtig überzeugt hat mich das Buch nicht, aber ich bin sehr froh dass die beiden Brüder den Schwedenurlaub gut überstehen. Das Gesetz muss ja nicht immer siegen.
Im Mittelpunkt des Krimis steht der Mexikaner Manuel der mal nach seinem Bruder in Schweden gucken will. Der Bruder sitzt wegen Drogenhandels im Gefängnis. Und es gibt Tote - naja ist ja nen Krimi. Die Kommissarin Lindell und ihr Team bleibt eigentlich ziemlich blass. Henning Mankell Kommentar Kjells Erikkson Krimis gehören zu den Besten, kann sich nur darauf bezeiehn ,dass auch Eriksson sich sozialer Themen annimmt und aufnimmt im Krimi. Schweden als Tummelplatz für das Soziale, das Gerechte etc. und doch läuft es schief. ( )
