    Labouring under the perpetually draining heat of a stifling summer in Maardam, a jaded and typically morose Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is clearly in the autumn of his career and contemplating retirement seriously than ever before Approaching sixty and with thirty five years service in the bag the advertisement offering a potential partnership in Krantze s antiquarian bookshop and time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, which for introspective Van Veeteren include beer, playing chess, classical music and a cigarette, takes a firm hold Thwarted in his desire for a peaceful summer sojourn at the family cottage by ex wife, Renate, he books a fortnight in Crete with high hopes on the romance front With two weeks remaining before his holiday is due to begin avoiding responsibility for investigations which might run into his departure date is a must, hence a request for his expertise in the idyllic tranquility of the forests of Sorbinowo, reassuring the acting Chief of Police, sounds like the perfect start to his break If only life was that simple but it never is for Van Veeteren.In the absence of his boss, stand in Chief of Police in Sorbinowo is Merwin Klugge whose three years service to date have amounted to little than paper pushing and finds himself daunted by an anonymous caller reporting a disappearance of a girl from the summer camp that plays host to a religious sect by the name of the ...

    Left to man the Sorbinowo police station while the chief takes time off to get over the death of his wife, Sergeant Merwin Kluuge isn t expecting much trouble in this bit of paradise But it s not long until he receives an anonymous call from a woman claiming that a little girl has disappeared from a camp in Waldingen run by the Pure Life religious sect The people at the camp say everyone s accounted for The next day he gets yet another anonymous phone call from the same woman, who threatens to go to the press if Kluuge doesn t do something But what sends him into a minor panic, and has him reaching for the phone to call the Mardaam police is when she says that if continues to do nothing, they ll kill some His chief had left orders not to be disturbed and to call Maardam if anything came up, because Van Veeteren owed him Of course, V.V is not happy about this, since he s bought a plane ticket for Crete, but off he goes to Sorbinowo But when he gets to the Pure Life camp, the group will hardly give him the time of day, and swear that no one s disappeared He s allowed to talk to some of the girls, but they re not saying much The next day, the body of a ...

    1.5 Meh rounded to 2 stars on GR because I ve read worse I bought this book at a local book sale, so I had zero expectations going in I m not disappointed in the low rating because I hadn t heard of the book until I bought it a few weeks back The Inspector and Silence tells the story of Inspector Van Veeteren, a Swedish detective, as he tries to solve a case involving the Pure Life a religious cult Unbeknownst to me when I bought it, this book is number five out of ten in a series that follows Van Veeteren Admittedly, that could play a factor in why I didn t connect with the book I found the story itself interesting a murder involving a cult Quite interesting However, just about everything else fell flat for me.I didn t connect to any of the characters, even on a superficial level I just finished the book and can t remember anyone else s name other than Van Veeteren not promising Everyone, including our inspector, just felt one dimensional The writing was also proble...

    I was disappointed by this book I d read all the other Nesser books so far translated into English and I was looking forward to this one, so I felt a little let down The story opens promisingly enough with a mysterious phonecall in which an unidentified woman claims a girl has been murdered at a site used by a secretive religious group Van Vee...

    I really like VV he s human, intuative, and deeply moved by the horrors he has seen including the little girls in this book It was heading toward a 5 star read, but the ending of the book was weak to me Nevertheless the telling of the story was superb I will read of the VV mysteries and Ness...

    My first introduction to H kan Nesser, The Inspector and silence affords the reader a thoroughly enjoyable sojourn to Sorbinowo, a forested Swedish lake side town Looks can be deceptive however and the forest, along with the town, hides a dark secret that local police cannot fathom enter chief inspector Van Veeteren.When I began reading The Inspector and silence which is incidentally the fifth in a series of ten books to be released in the UK, I wasn t quite sure what to expect having never heard of either H kan or indeed Van Veeteren It became clear to me within a couple of chapters that the narrative, considering it hails from Swedish descent, was engaging and fluid Having now read the book to its conclusion, much to my surprise, I can now confirm that this fluidity remained throughout allowing a rapid and entertaining read I can t remember reading another translated novel that read so effortlessly plaudits to Nesser and of course the translation services of Laurie Thompson In the heart of summer, the country swelters in a fug of heat In the...

    I read this during a plane ride to Sweden and coincidentally sat next to a woman who was from the author s home town Although I got a kick out of the main character, Inspector Van Veteren, VV for short, I thought VV was a little short on the detecting side of things I discovered the murderer in the firs...

    The most pointless, cliched, feebly plotted murder mystery ever Beautiful young girls brutally raped and strangled Give me a break The story unwinds at a snail s pace and after pointing the finger at the leader of the sect to which the girls bel...
