Tras haber sobrevivido al disparo recibido mientras resolvía su anterior caso (Defensa cerrada), el comisario Jaritos arrastra una aburridísima existencia de convaleciente lejos del ajetreo policial.

Petros Markaris is a Greek writer, but his books have been translated in many languages, he is one of my favorites, actually now i'm reading his book “the late-night news”. He writes detective novels. This book is his best for me so far, it's not like all the other detective novels that you already know the killer and you just wait to see what will happen. In this book you have absolutely no idea what is going on, you find out things when Inspector Haritos finds out ! It was one of the books tha...more

Un placer volver a encontrarme con el comisario Costas Jaritos & CIA.

Durante casi toda la lectura he estado pasándome de una mano a otra las cinco estrellitas pero en las últimas páginas se me ha caído una porque la motivación de (view spoiler) me parece poco creíble. Quizás si la acción transcurriera en Japón o los países nórdicos... pero vamos, a los lectores que habitamos las tierras de Bárcenas, Berlusconis y demás casi nos da la risa.
De todas maneras, una n...more

Suicidio perfecto


Una vez más, el comisario Jaritos, ahora de baja por enfermedad estudia un caso como pretexto de otro asunto, en esta ocasión de contarnos un poco cómo se organizan empresas que en Grecia contratan a trabajadores extranheros por muy poco dinero y les venden sus propios productos. En este caso son antiguos militantes de izquierdas los que ahora reconvertidos a empresarios o políticos llevan estos negocios que quizá no sean ilegales pero desde luego no son éticos en absoluto.

El ca...more

Ho rispolverato Markaris dopo un po' di tempo, forse troppo perché il romanzo mi è veramente piaciuto. La penna di Markaris è gradevole; il suo commissario Charitos è divertente, ha la battuta sempre pronta, un menage familiare che ti lascia sempre un mezzo sorriso, anche quando non c'è nulla di ironico. Onesto e schietto. Il caso in questione poi è insolito e particolare. Alla ricerca più di una verità che di un colpevole perché nessuno si può accusare… Non facile da gestire come trama consider...more

MARKARIS, Petros: “Live! Ein Fall für Kostas Charitos”, Zürich 2004
Ich dachte, ich habe schon alle Bücher von Markaris, dem türkischen Griechen, der in die österreichische Mittelschule in Istanbul ging, gelesen. Da kam Hannelore mit diesem Buch. Ich kannte es nicht und füllte so die Lücke.
2003 auf den Markt gekommen hat es schon Probleme aufgezeigt, die erst jetzt ein europäisches Problem wurden.
Es ist zwar ein Kriminalroman, wie alle „Kostas Charitos“ Romane, aber es ist auch ein Geschichtsbuch...more

(See my review of the English edition.)
Σπάνια διαβάζω αστυνομικά μυθιστορήματα.
Κάποια στιγμή είχα δει τον Μάρκαρη στην εκπομπή που έκανε ο Bernard Pivot για την Ε.Τ., και μου κέντρισε το ενδιαφέρον.
Από τότε πρόλαβα και διάβασα το Παλιά, πολύ παλιά, και τώρα αυτό. Το πρώτο μου κράτησε το ενδιαφέρον, μάλλον γιατί η ιστορία εξελίσσετε στην Κωνσταντινούπολη, και είχε κάτι το 'εξωτικό' σαν υπόβαθρο στην ιστορία.
Σε αυτό το επεισόδιο ο αστυνόμος Χαρίτος ερευνά μία σειρά από αυτοκτονίες που ίσως έχουν...more

Inspector Costas Harotis of the Athens Police Force is on sick leave, recovering from a bullet he took in the chest protecting a mother from her stepson. Politics being what it is in Greece, he is "temporarily", then more or less permanently replaced by an incompetent who, however, has connections in high places. Meanwhile, three very prominent figures--a successful businessman, a left-wing politician, and a right-wing journalist--all publicly commit suicide, the first two on live TV shows. An e...more

If, as is claimed, Petros Makarios is Greece's foremost author of crime stories, the rest must be very dull.

The improbable theme of this tale is a series of suicides committed live on television. Inspector Haritos, on sick leave, begins an under cover investigation. This being Greece in pre-Olympic Games building mode there is ample scope for corruption. Haritos - helped by his media contacts in the press and television, together with an assistant who compensates for his lack of IT know-how - do...more
Ευθυμία Δεσποτάκη
Πικρό, πολύ πικρότερο από τα προηγούμενα. Βγαίνει μια κατάθλιψη, εκείνη των παλιών αγωνιστών που τους έφαγε η μεταπολίτευση και οι επιτήδειοι. Οι χαρακτήρες είναι και πάλι τρομερά σκιαγραφημένοι κι όσο πάει τόσο θυμώνεις μαζί τους ή τους οικτίρεις. Έχει το κακό του από μηχανής θεού εδώ κι ο ρόλος του Ζήση αρχίζει να γίνεται γραφικός, αλλά στο επόμενο το σώζει αρκετά.

Δεν ήταν ο καλύτερος Μάρκαρης που έχω διαβάσει, αλλά ένας μέτριος Μάρκαρης είναι πάντα καλύτερος από πολλά βιβλία που έχω διαβάσει. Αν το διαβάσεις μην μείνεις μόνο σε αυτό , βρες το Παλιά Πολύ Παλιά , το Νυχτερινό Δελτίο και την Άμυνα Ζώνης και θα ανακαλύψεις ένα πολύ καλό συγγραφέα.

sto leggendo a ritroso la "saga" del commissario Charitos. Devo dire che sì, i libri di Markaris si leggono facilmente e velocemente, le pagine scivolano via con agilità. Ma qui la storia mi è sembrata un po' tirata, i tre suicidi-omicidi mi son sembrati troppi, già dopo il secondo mi sarebbe piaciuto entrare nel corridoio finale della risoluzione del caso e non per "suspense" ma per noia.
Ho trovato debole la struttura narrativa: il neo più grosso è che risulta difficilmente credibile che un pol...more

Markaris è ingiustamente meno famoso di quanto meriti. Il suo commissario Charitos, in questo romanzo più che mai tiranneggiato dalla moglie Adriana (che le sue mani siano benedette), è uno dei personaggi più azzeccati della narrativa di genere.
In questo "Si è suicidato il Che", Charitos si trova a dover risolvere una situazione ingarbugliata che mescola politica, affari, militanza terroristica e delitti abilmente mascherati.
Il commissario si affida alla sua proverbiale testardaggine e a una fer...more

Quattro stellette e mezza.
Petros Markaris non si smentisce, ma l’ho trovato un filo meno brillante dei due precedenti. Rimane una gran bella lettura di genere, questo sì, e un bel ritratto sociale della Grecia di qualche anno fa, quella di prima della grande crisi.
Zefa García
M'ha agradat molt, com sempre. Màrkaris fa un retrat molt proper de Grècia, de la seva gent i els seus costums.

An enjoyable escape from Scandi crime. Insp Haritos who is on sick leave is asked to investigate unofficially the public suicide of a number of prominent Greeks. It really gave a flavour of Athens preparing for the Olympic games with an atmospheric capture of the heat, the traffic, feelings about immigration from the Balkans and the ghosts of the military Junta. Also a very engaging hero, I will definitely read the first two in the series.
Mario
La trama è un po' debole e traballante, ma comunque originale.
Il personaggio del commissario Charitos è accattivante e il testo scorrevole.
E' interessante e curioso il piccolo quadro della Grecia moderna che riesce a descrivere, con frequenti spunti di carattere gastronomico (ma mai nulla sui vini curiosamente, o quasi; forse Charitos è astemio ?).
Alla fine Markaris riesce anche questa volta a creare un libro piacevole.
Mara
Giallo abbastanza intrigante, ma trovo che il vero valore dei libri di Markaris sia nella descrizione del contesto socio-politico ed economico della grecia che lo scrittore tratteggia con umorismo agro-dolce ed un pizzico di amore-odio.
Chris Galle
After a slow start - the slowness of Greek life seems to be infectious! - I got fascinated by Kostas' weary fight for integrity both in and outside the police station. Nice holiday literature. And what an intriguing title!
Emily
If you've got a good working knowledge of modern Greek history and culture, you might enjoy this plodding mystery. It was just ok, and didn't really care about finishing it.
Athina
Ωραίο κι αυτό το βιβλίο, είχε ενδιαφέρον από την αρχή, αλλά μου έκανε λίγο κάπως το τέλος, δεν το έχω χωνέψει ακόμα, αλλά μου άρεσε!

La trama è decisamente interessante e coinvolgente. Scritto bene. Consigliato.
