Jan-Erik Fjell "Dunkelhaus": Norwegian crime king conquers German bestseller list

In his native Norway, Jan-Erik Fjell is a master of the crime genre and a representative of Nordic noir. It has also gained a loyal readership in Germany and was already at the top of our recommendations in the spring. This contributes to the fact that his novel "Dunkelhaus" lands at number 17 on the bestseller list for paperback fiction, as buchreport writes. In Oslo, Inspector Anton Brekke is in the middle of a murder investigation when he receives horrific news. His former mentor and colleague Harald Uteng fell from his houseboat and drowned.

In Oslo, Inspector Anton Brekke is in the middle of a murder investigation when he receives terrible news. His former mentor and colleague Harald Uteng fell from his houseboat and drowned. Apparently a tragic accident. But Anton investigates.

Long awaited: Andrea Camilleri "A deep look into the soul"

In the meantime, Andrea Camilleri has written the 26th Commissario Montalbano crime novel. Thus, this series almost comes close to Donna Leon's Brunetti crime novels. His crime series, which is set in Sicily, has had a regular readership for years and should not be missing from any bookshelf of crime fiction fans. Subtle wit, but also the taking up of political and socio-critical topics make the books worth reading.

Commissario Montalbano's deputy, Mimì, has discovered a dead man – under mysterious circumstances. Shortly thereafter, a call arrives at the police station: the wealthy theatre lover Carmelo Catalanotti has been found lifeless – in the same position as the other dead man. While the investigation in the first case proves to be particularly delicate, Montalbano soon suspects in the Catalanotti case that he has incurred wrath as the leader of an acting troupe with unusual selection criteria. Montalbano is confronted with a whole host of suspects. And she also has to stand up to a new ambitious colleague – the beautiful forensic scientist Antonia ...
