From the Russian masters of sci-fi comes The Dead Mountaineer's Inn, a hilarious spoof on the classic country-house murder mystery. When Inspector Peter Glebsky arrives at a remote ski chalet on vacation, the last thing he intends to do is get involved in any police work. He's there to ski, drink brandy, and loaf around in blissful solitude. But he hadn't counted on the other vacationers, an eccentric bunch, including a famous hypnotist, a physicist with a penchant for gymnastic feats, a sulky teenager of indeterminate gender, and the mysterious Mr. and Mrs. Moses. And as the chalet fills up, strange things start happening-things that seem to indicate the presence of another, unseen guest. Is there a ghost on the premises? A prankster? Something more sinister? When an avalanche blocks the mountain pass and traps everyone in the chalet, the corpse is finally discovered. Glebsky's vacation is over, and he's embarked on the most unusual investigation he's ever been involved with. In fact, the further he looks into it, the more Glebsky realizes that the victim may not even be human.In this late novel from the legendary Russian sci-fi duo-here in its first-ever English translation-the Strugatskys gleefully upend the plot of many an Hercule Poirot mystery-and the result is much funnier and much stranger than anything Agatha Christie ever wrote.… (mais)

Upon reflection, such a heartbreaking ending. ( )

Sci-fi skoro detektivní příběh o příhodách v hotelu, kde straší. Vysokohorský hotel se stává dějištěm napínavého střetnutí obyvatel cizí planety s pozemšťany. V hotelu straší. Je Bruno chlapec nebo dívka? Odříznuti od světa. Smrt v zamčeném pokoji. Mimozemšťané nebo gangsteři?

It's okay. I think I was hyped a bit too much for this from reviews/Vandermeer's introduction. ( )

A police inspector, Peter Glebsky, specialty fraud and white collar crime, goes on a ski holiday for a needed rest in the mountains. Only. . . the Inn, recommended by a friend is haunted by practical jokers. Instead of finding rest he finds a peculiar assortment of guests, a financier with a beautiful wife, a magician with a gender opaque nephew/niece, a mountain climbing physicist, a giant Swede, etc. Someone is playing practical jokes, moving things around, making the floor damp here or there. Peter is enjoying observing them but then, inevitably, there is a dead body. He is not a murder detective, but he jumps into gear. There is also an avalanche that has made leaving impossible, phone lines down. Only . . . the clues just gets more and more impossible, more and more absurd. The Strugatskys pull apart the genre and put in all the classic elements and "roadblocks" (literally in this case) and then toss in the kitchen sink. Thi isn't your usual murder mystery and is more absurd than serious, more humorous than not but it pivots on an aspect of human nature that is neither absurd nor humorous: the human need to make a story that 'works' which, in this case, involves overriding the more improbable (but true) explanation. It's fun and I totally enjoyed it, but not for everyone. **** ( )

The movie was recommended by an Estonian. A perfectly OK Russian science fiction whodunit. I'm not sure you should get to switch genres to reveal the murderer. ( )

The The Dead Mountaineer's Inn is a novel by Arkady Strugatsky & Boris Strugatsky, published in 1970. The version I've read is the Hungarian edition, published by Kozmosz Könyvek in 1981. This is a story of an investigation, set somewhere in Scandinavia of the 1960s, where strange things happen to guests trapped in a hotel. The characters are varied, the events are interesting. I liked the The Dead Mountaineer's Inn book from the Strugatsky brothers, it was fun from start to finish.
