L'Homme aux cercles bleus Á Dem neuen Kommissar im 5 Arrondissement Jean Baptiste Adamsberg Und eines Nachts geschieht was er befürchtet hat es liegt ein toter Mensch im Kreidekreis. While his crew of co workers are trying to figure him out the new commissaire Jean Baptiste Adamsberg settles into his job in the Paris police force in the 5th arrondissement Adamsberg started his police career in the stony foothills of the Pyrenees where another inspector told him that he wasn't cut out to be a policeman But that was before he went on to solve several murders in the area was promoted to inspector and then commissaire When the job in Paris was offered to him he grabbed it Showing up to work with clothes in disarray doodling all day working largely on gut reaction and intuition and moving very slowly he didn't fit into what Adrien Danglard one of his inspectors considered to be the regular policeman moldThis entire novel like Adamsberg himself is rather uirky but the commissaire is just the tip of the iceberg There is an assortment of offbeat and unusual characters that populate this book later as well as a rather peculiar set of crimes that occur all beginning with someone who draws blue chalk circles throughout the city leaving different articles in each one one day it's paper clips another day it's a lamb chop bone and yet another a swimming cap etc And around each circle is written the same phrase Victor woe's in store what are you out here for The chalk circle phenomenon has become so widespread that the newspapers have a field day People will soon be jostling for the honour of finding a circle outside their door on the way to work in the morning Whether the circles are the work of a cynical con artist or a genuine madman if it's fame he's after the creator of the circles has certainly got what he wanted Galling isn't it for people who've spent a lifetime trying to become famous If he's ever tracked down they'll have him on a TV chat show in no time I can see it now 'The cultural sensation of the fin de millenium' 23But Adamsberg senses that there's and orders Danglard to have a police photographer out in the street to photograph the circle that he feels will come that night And Adamsberg's intuition serves him well as the harmless chalk circles escalate into murderBesides Adamsberg who while doing his job is always thinking about his lost petite cherie Camille a woman with a pet marmoset named Richard III the author has created some other rather off the wall characters Mathilde Forestier is a famous oceanographer whose hobby is following people around the city Living with Mathilde is Clémence Valmont her seventy something year old assistant whose teeth remind Mathilde of those of crocidura russula and to whom she often refers as shrew mouse Clémence spends her evenings combing the personals looking for romance and going out on pointless dates There's also Charles Reyer blinded when he was dissecting a lioness to study its locomotive system and was suirted in the eye with rotten flesh Seriously I couldn't make up this stuff if I tried And finally there's Adamsberg's colleague Danglard whose wife left him with two sets of twins and a child from a love affair He's a good cop but he also has a sense of compassion that doesn't stop to the point where he worries about the sun dying in five billion years Danglard who has a bit too much to drink now and then often holds case conferences with his kids where he discusses police work and allows them their own voices in theorizing about the crimes Vargas allows her characters to develop their own approaches to Adamsberg's character but in the end it's Reyer the blind man who says it best He just gets on with his life letting it all swill about big ideas and little details impressions and realities thoughts and words He combines the belief of a child with the philosophy of an old man But he's real and he's dangerous 103 When I read crime fiction or mystery novels I'm not so much interested in the who but rather the why as my primary interest is in that well worn cliché about the evil that lurks in men's souls I look for motivations and underpinnings in the criminal's psyche and search for any hint of his or her existential crises in determining the why I'm a puzzle solver and this type of fiction if written well appeals to that part of me And then I decide whether or not an author has fulfilled my expectations in those categories I must say that Vargas sends all of that flying right out of the window she has written a very unusual novel in which those things really don't matter She lulls you into thinking along the lines of it's this person no it's that person but wait that's also possible and then she comes up with an ending that hits you like the proverbial ton of bricks And I liked it It was well written the characters are so eccentric that they appealed to my sensitivity to the uirky side of life and it may be a bit odd for most readers of general crime fiction who may become a bit frustrated with all of the philosophical outpourings from time to time But it's good There is just nothing orthodox about this book and I think that's part of it its appeal Most highly recommended REVIEW Û eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Fred Vargas

Fred Vargas ´ 8 REVIEW Eine Bierdose ein Brillenglas ein Joghurtbecher Keiner hat den Zeichner je gesehen die Presse amüsiert sich niemand nimmt die Sache ernst Niemand außer. At first glance Chalk Circle Man seemed like the kind of mystery novel I'd enjoy Sadly though it turned out to be not for me I don't think there's something particularly wrong with the book It just wasn't my cup of tea If I had to put my finger on why I'd say it was too offbeat for me I get that Commissaire Adamsberg is supposed to be a kind of anti Sherlock think gut feelings instead of deduction but for me the overall effect was on the woo woo side Plus none of the characters felt like actual real life people due to the fact they were all so damn uirky So Do I care for this book No Do I think others might or do Certainly
