Pozornie spokojny stary taoistyczny Klasztor Porannych Obłoków, gdzie sędzia Di zatrzymuje się na noc wraz ze świtą, staje się sceną złowieszczych wydarzeń. Wartość serii o przygodach sędziego Di jest dwojaka: po pierwsze, przygody sędziego Di dostarczają doskonałej rozrywki. Akcja jest spójna, liczba postaci ograniczona, czytelnik może więc bez trudu śledzić poczynania gł ...more

Ο Δικαστής Τι, σε αυτή την περιπέτεια, βρίσκεται καταμεσής της ερημιάς κατά την διάρκεια μιας φοβερής καταιγίδας. Μοναδική λύση να καταφύγει σε ένα ταοϊστικό μοναστήρι που έχει την φήμη του στοιχειωμένου. Εκεί ο ήρωας μας έρχεται αντιμέτωπος με μια από τις πιο μακάβριες υποθέσεις που θα συναντήσει ποτέ. Η εικόνα μιας μονόχειρα νεαρής έρχεται και φεύγει, φωνές ψιθυρίζουν το όνομα του, σκιές αποπειρώνται να τον δολοφονήσουν, αγάλματα ματώνουν, ενώ φρικιαστικές τελετές έρχονται στο φως. Μια εκπληκτ ...more

Recommends it for: those who love historical mysteries set in exotic locales
Author Robert van Gulik, an accomplished Dutch diplomat, linguist, and Orientalist, yet again proves himself a great writer as well with The Haunted Monastery, the fifth book in the wonderful Judge Dee mystery series. In this short book, set in western China (in what is modern-day Sichuan Province) in A.D. 666, Judge Dee takes refuge during a terrible rainstorm in the Monastery of the Morning Clouds. Judge Dee, had been traveling home with his entourage, when the cart broke an axle. Judge Dee, u ...more

Ευκολοδιάβαστο βιβλίο που όμως σε μεταφέρει άψογα στην αρχαία Κίνα. Μου άρεσε η γραφή του Van Gulik και ας μην είναι ιδιαίτερα λογοτεχνική. Το μυστήριο πλέκεται όμορφα και ο αναγνώστης μαζί με τον Δικαστή Τι προχωρούν στην επίλυση του. Επίσης υπάρχουν πολλά στοιχεία που εξηγούν της έννοιες του Κουμφουκιανισμού και του Ταοϊσμού που το κάνει ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέρον. Σίγουρα θα διαβάσω κ άλλες περιπέτειας του Δικαστή Τι.

One of the creepiest Judge Dee stories - it's set in a secluded Taoist monastery in the mountains, in a monastery full of secret rooms and passages and crazy, crazy people - but also one of the funniest - Dee has the flu and he's even grumpier than what's usual for him. We also learn more about Dee's personal life, that he has three wives, called the First, Second and Third Lady in the book, and about his assistant, Tao Kan. The story itself is rather gory, bodies hacked apart and similar stuff. ...more

Ωραία ήταν κι αυτή η περιπέτεια του δικαστή Τι! Πάλι διαδραματίζεται αλλού, χωρίς πολλούς βοηθούς. Η πλοκή στην αρχή φαίνεται λίγο συνηθισμένη, αλλά στο τέλος οι εξελίξεις είναι ραγδαίες!

This book has a similarity to Sherlock Holmes in the way that the mystery is revealed and built up too. It is set in a Taoist Monastery on a cliff where Judge Dee, the Magistrate of the province along with his wives, stops on a Journey due to a storm. He gets engaged in investigating the deaths of multiple young girls who lost their lives due to "natural causes", but had never been documented. Many mysterious happenings go on while the judge is at the Monastery and one can instantly tell that al ...more

I liked this unusual period mystery. We just watched "Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame" found out during the "extras" that the story was based on a historic character. Further research turned up the novels by van Gulik, which centered on Judge Dee. According to the author, the storied are based on the real character, although the mysteries themselves are made up.

The characters are interesting, the glimpses into life in the Tang dynasty intriguing.

This audiobook was my first introduction to the Judge Dee mysteries by Robert van Gulik. It was sufficiently spooky and drew me in right away - combination psych thriller, light horror, murder and mystery. Perhaps it was due to listening this while driving at night through empty country surrounded by fog. I was hooked!

In the mountains above Hanyuan, Judge Dee has been caught together with Tao Gan and his three wives in the middle of a thunderstorm. They must take refuge at the Daoist monastery Chaoyunguan, where during the Northern Wei dynasty a peasant revolt was violently quelled, and where more recently three young girls have died mysterious and unexplained deaths. In addition, Judge Dee begins seeing ghostly apparitions and hearing strange whispers in the monastery halls. In spite of these hauntings and i ...more

I originally bought the French version of this book while I was in Paris last summer and then bought the English version on ebay. A murder mystery set in a haunted Taoist monastery during the Tang sounded perfect and I did enjoy it even if there weren't any actual ghosts. I read the English version first this time and then the French version. This helped with my comprehension of the French a great deal as when I found one passage confusing I could go back and figure out what was going on from th ...more

Συμπαθητικότατη φιγούρα ο Δικαστής Τι!!! Και με τρεις συζύγους παρακαλώ!
Ομολογώ κατά πρωτίστως πως επ ουδενί δεν πέρασε από το μυαλό μου να διαβάσω κινέζικη αστυνομική λογοτεχνία και πως, γιαυτό δεν με απογοήτευσε και καθόλου.
Όπως και κάπου προανέφερα αν ο Δικαστής μας ήταν λίγο πιο ιδιόρρυθμος θα τον συνέδεα με τον πολύ οικείο σε μας Σέρλοκ. Διαθέτει την ίδια οξυμένη αντιληπτική ικανότητα, θυμάται και ανακαλεί λεπτομέρειες, γεγονότα και εικόνες που παρήλθαν, και όλα αυτά τα τα συνδιαζει και τα

Der Name der Orchidee

Ein einsames Kloster im Nirgendwo - unerklärliche Morde - undurchsichtige Mönche - ein mit überragendem Geist versehener Aufklärer von Verbrechen: Kommt Ihnen das bekannt vor? Wer Umberto Ecos Meisterwerk gelesen (oder zumindest die kongeniale Verfilmung gesehen) hat, wird sich in diesem Kurzroman direkt wie zu Hause fühlen. Richter Di ist zwar kein William von Baskerville, dazu ist er zu trocken und humorlos, doch ähnlich wie Ecos Detektivsmönch lässt auch der Richter Di ni

I really like this book. As someone who grew up reading agatha christie, this book is also a classic detective story, really exciting to read, with a touch of horror on the side. Different from CSI era, this novel gives you a perspective of how we deal with crimes in the past. And by the past here, is waaayyy back to the year 668 or so in ancient China.

I fell in love with Judge Dee character, who is very fair and competent in solving all the problems, and he doesn't care with the status of the p

An historical mystery set in ancient China. Judge Dee finds himself stranded, along with his three wives, at a remote Taoist monastery, and uncovers all sorts of wickedness among the monks. Including murder, rape and kidnapping. Judge Dee, being a devoted follower of Confucius, doesn’t rely approve of this new-fangled Taoist dabbling in metaphysical speculations anyway. Dee is a delightfully entertaining detective, and the whole tale is rather like one of Ann Radcliffe’s overheated gothic novels ...more

Why I reread this book: I put the EPUB version on my iPad recently, took a look at it ... and found myself hooked, all over again.

This is probably my favorite of the Judge Dee mysteries I've read. Like the others, it has pleasant viewpoint characters (the Judge and his "lieutenant" Tao Gan); unlike the others, this has a whiff of horror about it, both in the atmosphere (the setting feels a little like a haunted house, with ghosts and secret passages) and the final revelation, which is a bit unpl

judge dee never fails to impress me. even staying a night in a monastery, he would inevitable come across a mystery and solve it.

I love the many characters in this story. each have own purpose in going to the monastery. reminds me of Agatha Christie's 10 little Indians story.

what I didn't like about this story was that it was hard to imagine the plan of the monastery. There was just too many corridors and rooms. it kinda disturbed the flow of the story for me coz I need to recall who and who wa
Het wordt een drukke nacht voor de verkouden Rechter Tie als hij door noodweer strandt in een Taoistisch klooster. Noodgedwongen moet hij beleefdheidsgesprekken voeren, een mysteriespel bekijken en deelnemen aan een banket. Hij hoort allerlei geheimzinnigheden en ziet een vrouw verkracht worden, waar hij eigenlijk niets zien kan en wat is de relatie tussen de jonge vrouw die non wil worden en het meisje met de beer? Al met al raadsels genoeg voor Rechter Tie die hij pas tegen de ochtend weet op ...more
The Judge Dee stories remind me a lot of Melville Post's Uncle Abner stories as Judge Dee and Post's Uncle Abner share a lot of similar characteristic's. Both of them are kind of pompous, self-righteous, arrogant but infallible little prigs (which is not all bad for storytelling.) And, the stories are also similar in that they play out more like a series of morality tales or fables then mysteries.

For me, fun maybe, nostalgic maybe, but not really much in the way of a mystery.

My personal favorite, this one is #5 in the series. Judge Dee, along with several wives and households finds himself trapped by a storm in in the mountains, and forced to take refuge in a Daoist monastery. Of course, as usual, the magistrate finds several mysteries awaiting him.

The final denouement is one of the most vivid I've read in a mystery. I'd recommend this book to people who enjoy historical mysteries or stories set in China.

When I borrowed this book, I thought it would be a quick read with little to recommend it beyond that. To my surprise, the character of Judge Dee is founded on a real historical figure who lived from 630 A.D. to 700 A.D. The mystery involves the philosophy of Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. The key to this mystery involves a religious symbol and incorporates a Chinese culture of the7th century.

Judge Dee's cart breaks down on a mountain road during a bad storm. He and his entourage seek shelter for the night at a nearby monastery. Judge Dee then investigates the mysterious disappearances of 3 girls over the last year. Lots of interesting peeks into the life of 7th century China. I have read about 6 of the books in this series and so far this is my favorite.
Nov 06, 2012 Anne rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
The setting is interesting and provides a glimpse at Taoism contrasted with Inspector Dee's Confucianism. I found a greater level of gruesome violence than the first book and as a result, I did not like it as much.

I love mysteries, and once I find an author, I read straight through. But of all the van Gulik's this one gave me the most chills. I don't want to spoil it for anybody, but it's got a very weird feel to it, and gave me a some pretty creepy moments.
Ronald Van
Eigenlijk een gedrocht van een onmogelijk verhaal waarbij de kennelijk befaamde Chinese rechter Tie in één nacht onwaarschijnlijk veel belevenissen meemaakt.
Schijnbaar mystieke verschijnselen worden aan de hand van toevalligheden verklaard, jammer is dat voor het verhaal.
Lisa Kucharski
In this Judge Dee mystery the story takes place during a stay at a large Monastery. It is also laid out in a more traditional western styled story. However, by remaining in one spot, we get to see more intimately aspects of the place and the peoples in it.

Pleasant mystery--probably even more pleasant for those interested in early China. For those more interested in mysteries, it's a little wooden, though I like Judge Dee himself. Great illustrations.

This one was pretty spooky, what with all the shadowy doings in the monastery and the salacious nature of several of the crimes (yes, there are more than one!). Judge Dee is such a human character, but his deductive reasoning and wit are sharper than sharp. A good read.

A quick, engaging read that gets even more interesting as it gets going. Parts of it were a little disturbing and unpleasant. But overall, a clever mystery.
