Un'inchiesta del commissario Van Veeteren
Il caso G è l’unico caso irrisolto della lunga carriera del commissario Van Veeteren, da sempre la sua spina nel fianco. Il cadavere di una donna ritrovato sul fondo di una piscina vuota, un presunto omicida con un alibi inattaccabile… Chi ha ucciso Barbara Clarissa Hennan? Davvero è stato suo marito Jaan, detto G, unico sospettato e, tra l’altro, odiato ex compagno di scuola di Van Veeteren? E come ha fatto a farla franca? Questi interrogativi tormentano il commissario da ben quindici anni, anche se lui ormai è in pensione ed è completamente assorbito dalla sua nuova attività di libraio antiquario. Quando la figlia del detective privato che all’epoca seguiva le indagini si presenta da lui riferendogli della scomparsa del padre, che ha lasciato un messaggio criptico in cui afferma di avere le prove per incastrare Hennan, Van Veeteren ha la possibilità di chiudere definitivamente i conti con il passato…

The G File by Hakan Nesser. Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is reality anything else in your life goes on hold! THE Chief Inspector has but one file that has never been closed...never been solved. That of Jaan G. Hennan. Did it start 15 years ago when private eye Maarten Verlangen was paid a visit by Bar Leggi tutto
The final Inspector Van Veeteren mystery is a worthy conclusion to this wonderful series. The G File is perhaps two books in one; certainly at over 600 pages you get value for money. However the book is in two distinct parts, 15 years apart and beautifully crafted to run smoothly together. The initial Leggi tutto
Thought the story was a good one, you don't know how it was done until Håkan lets it fly.
ecco da dove viene l'impressione di deja vu: "la donna che visse due volte".
inspector van veeteren becomes involved with the death of a woman at the bottom of a swimming pool - which has no water, barbara hannan just 3 days prior she had hired a p.i. to follow her husband - with no explanation. verlangen, who is an ex police officer, assumes that it is the usual suspected a Leggi tutto
At 600 pages, this was about 300 too long. There was a murder mystery to solve and the resolution was quite clever, but by the time I got there I was so desperate to finish the book I was past caring. Most of the book was really turgid and there was so much repetition of "we know he did it but we ca Leggi tutto
This is the last in the Van Veeteren series unless Håkon Nesser decides to resurrect him. It G file refers to the only case that Van Veetren hasn't solved in his career. The G file has been hinted at in several previous instalments. The story is presented in two parts a retelling of the past and the Leggi tutto
The last, number ten, of the Van Veeteren series and I have enjoyed the series and the writer's storytelling and quirky touches all along. Why only three! Because this good read was too long and meandering. Yes, the twists were interesting, characters well drawn, old and new, storyline tidied up nic Leggi tutto
3.5 stars. The first half was a lot longer than it needed to be, and, if that were it, it would have barely made 3 stars; but the second half was vintage Van Veeteren with a twist at the end, and resulted in a great finale to the series
Auch auf die Gefahr hin von anderen der Blasphemie bezichtigt zu werden: Håkan Nesser ist der bessere Henning Mankell! Aufgrund letzterem kam ich eigentlich schon zu der Überzeugung, dass skandinavische Krimis wohl einfach nichts für mich seien, obwohl ich eigentlich "Drumherumerzählungen" sehr mag ; Leggi tutto
