Una muy buena continuación de la serie de Anne Capestan. Con intriga y humor, los componentes de la brigada se ven envueltos en el asesinato del suegro de Anne, así como en la investigación de una serie de “muertes anunciadas” para lo que tienen que desplazarse fuera de París.
Los personajes que forman el equipo de Anne se ven envueltos en nuevas situaciones surrealistas para tratar de resolver sus casos, además, en esta historia, tienen que competir con los compañeros de brigadas mucho más prepa

Me lo he pasado genial con la brigada. Me lo fumé en 1 día. A pesar de que este tiene situaciones más surrealistas que el primer libro no tiene desperdicio. Entre una persecución en pony y una rata participando de una reyerta me lo pasé bien. Nuevos miembros a la brigada y otra perspectiva de la vida personal de cada uno de ellos. La química entre el equipo y la comisaria Capestan muy bien lograda. Se me hizo corto. Si hubiese publicado ya un tercer libro lo leería de inmediato.

Segundo libro protagonizado por la comisaria Anne Capestan y su brigada de apestados. En la línea del primero, esta novela policíaca está narrada con un estilo humorístico, llegando al absurdo, con situaciones tan surrealistas como una persecución a lomos de un pony.

Tenemos nuevos elementos en la brigada, de los que destacan un policía convencido de que es un mosquetero de la época de Richelieu y una nueva especie de policía, una rata, que viene a acompañar al auxiliar de policía, Pilú, el perro

On retrouve nos détectives excentriques, leurs méthodes non-conformistes, leurs traits d'humour et d'esprit à démêler des nœuds improbables. Ne vous y trompez pas, la lecture n'est pas seulement insolite ou superficielle, c'est certes un rendez-vous plein de fraîcheur, d'humour et de plaisir, mais l'histoire ne manque ni de cohérence ni de consistance. Cette série ne cesse de me réjouir, à quand la suite ?

On retrouve Anne Capestan et sa bande de bras cassés dans une enquête plus intime, mais toujours saupoudrée de scènes loufoques et cocasses !
Encore une fois, l'intrigue tient la route, et l'écriture de Sophie Henaff déborde d'enthousiasme !

Stick Together by Sophie Henaff, is the brilliant follow up to The Awkward Squad, which introduced us to the chaff of the French police service, transplanted into one investigation unit full of misfits, overseen by the eminently more sensible, though formerly trigger happy, Commissaire Anne Capestan. I love this collection of disparate souls, from there first outing solving cold cases, and now thrust into the limelight of a particularly baffling murder investigation. Fast, furious and funny.

Divertida y entretenida novela policíaca con toques de humor, con protagonistas un poco esperpénticos, pero con mucho encanto. Es el segundo libro de una serie, en la que nos volvemos a encontrar con la brigada de 'pringados' de la policía parisina, deshechados de sus sitios habituales, comandados por Anne Capestan, la única un poco normal. Tenemos a un crack informático, pero con lapsus de memoria debido al boxeo; una capitán de policía, que se ha hecho rica y famosa por escribir novelas policí ...more

Igual de bueno que el primero, me gusta mucho esta serie. Ahora a esperar por el siguiente!
Mi Camino Blanco
Segunda entrega de una nueva saga policíaca, iniciada con el primer título "La brigada de Anne Capestan" y cuya originalidad reside en el variopinto grupo de polis frikis o malditos que componen el equipo de investigación liderado por la comisaria Capestan, asi como el leve toque de humor que lo diferencia de otras sagas.

Die Ermittler-Einheit von Kommissarin Anne Capestan ist wieder da. Sie hat sich um einen neuen schrägen Vogel bereichert, einen Polizisten, der sich für D’Artagnan, den Helden des Romans Die drei Musketiere von Alexandre Dumas hält. Und wieder wird der Truppe der Ausrangierten ein besonders pikanter Fall übertragen: Ein Mord auf offener Straße, das Opfer war ein hohes Tier bei der Polizei –und Anne Capestans Ex-Schwiegervater. Das bringt Anne gleich mehrfach in Schwierigkeiten. Denn wie soll sie ...more

Una gran continuación para la brigada de policía más pintoresca, sagaz y a priori, un tanto cómica. No obstante, aunque repudiados de sus brigadas, los policías de ese piso de Les Innocents, son todo menos inocentes y "palurdos", que es como les ven las demás brigadas. El piso, decorado y amueblado a todo lujo, mesa de billar incluida, con Pilú (o Piloto) y Ratafia como mascotas del cuerpo policial, se encuentran con 3 asesinatos (relacionados) que deben resolver.

I read a previous book by this author and like it. Both were written by a French author and translated into English. There were many similar words from the French police that broke the flow of words. I had a difficult time handling the story. There were parts the flow smoothly.

Me pareció mejor el primero de la serie, por la originalidad del grupo que, evidentemente, en este segundo libro ya no es tan original. En cualquier caso también es muy divertido y sobre todo la pelea con los hinchas del Chelsea es antológica.

Erfrischender Vorweihnachtskrimi mit Witz und allerhand Mut

Das Revier der schrägen Vögel ist der zweite Band der Kommando Abstellgleis-Reihe der französischen Cosmopolitan-Kolumnistin Sophie Hénaff. Obwohl mein Herz eher für britischen Humor schlägt, hat der erste Band des exzentrischen Pariser Krimis mich restlos begeistert. Nun geht das Abenteuer der ausgemusterten Gurkentruppe weiter, mit neuen Charakteren und noch verrückteren Einfällen.

Was passiert?

After bringing a dirty cop to justice in The Awkward Squad, the entire Paris police force considers Commissaire Anne Capestan's squad a bunch of traitors. This certainly isn't going to help them with their latest investigation into the death of Capestan's ex-father-in-law, a former police officer with no shortage of enemies. Even though they're referred to as "the official dregs squad," these misfits seem to be putting clues together faster than their fellow officers in other divisions and have ...more

The moment I read the summary of Stick Together by Sophie Henaff, I jumped on my library's app. to request the first book in the series, "Awkward Squad". I wanted to give myself the best possible experience. And I had a grand read. Sophie Henaff's police procedural is a distinct pleasure. The quirky characters are more than their sum. Each member of her odd squad of Paris detectives bring different personalities, strengths and weaknesses to the team and to the story. The City of Paris itself is ...more

ARC received from NetGalley, in return for an honest review.

After her ex-father-in-law, and former policeman, is found murdered, Commisaire Anne Capestan's squad of misfits are put on the case. But with obstacles being thrown in their way, new "undesirable" members joining the team, and revelations hitting a little too close to home - are they actually meant to solve the case?

In this second title of the translated Awkward Squad series, the reader is brought further into the personal lives of the

Je ne pouvais pas monter jusqu'à 4 car ma lecture a souffert d'un enthousiasme quand même moindre par rapport au premier volet, mais pour une suite, malgré l'effet de surprise passé et parce que le meilleur a déjà été exploité à mon sens, ça reste d'excellente facture et franchement sympathique++, et encore une fois, l'enquête est solide et ne sert pas juste de parenthèse dans cette intrigue centrée sur une brigade mise au placard et dont la compagnie nous manque dès la dernière page tournée.

They‘re all outsiders. They are put together in a team because they’re not wanted anywhere else. They all have their own problems. But somehow they work together. No one really wants them but together, they manage to make this their advantage. A very well-paced crime story that manages to be interesting with the facts and storyline and all of the characters. Really the best series I‘ve discovered this year.

Fun and engrossing French police procedural. I was so taken with the first book in the series, The Awkward Squad, that I ordered this second entry as soon as the English translation was published in the UK. Although not quite as fabulous as the first, I highly recommend it, particularly for fans of Peter Lovesey's Peter Diamond series, or anyone who likes a bit of offbeat, character-driven crime solving in an evocative setting. But first, go find The Awkward Squad and read it!

Pffff... j’ai adoré. Encore mieux si ce n’est aussi bien que le premier. L’évolution des personnages est parfaite, tous aussi attachants les uns que les autres. L’intrigue est salée juste ce qu’il faut, bien saupoudrée d’humour même si on n’est plus dans le désopilant du premier tome.
