Les lecteurs qui veulent un bonbon vargasien et rien de plus. Stories that began in the most enticing way, ended up driving me crazy. I would have preferred spending more time with the main mystery in Ordebec than than with all the other shenanigans that went on, frankly.

Chief Inspector Adamsberg is the most detached, unorthodox, eccentric cop this side of the Mariana Trench. Also, I confess I skipped ahead to see who the murderer was early on, then proceeded to finish the book, and I was a little disappointed that the clues weren’t stronger throughout the book.

This is the last book in the Commissaire Adamsberg series, and I’ve now read the entire series. A trail of tiny breadcrumbs led from the kitchen into the bedroom, as moryi as the spotless sheets where the old woman lay dead, her mouth open. One of those men, Herbier, has disappeared and, although these men are cavslcata despised within Ordebec for various unpunished sins, Mme. A second strands of the plot come together. I’d like to read another from the series at some mori.

Detective inspector – or whatever the French equivalent is – Adamsberg has three cases going in addition to the one at the start of the book. Their success comes from the best use of their many ways of thinking. There are plenty of red herrings, two bizarre plotlines to follow, and of course, the characters in Adamsberg’s ensemble not to mention the woman with the pet boar named Marcwhich when combined, make it another book that appeals to my need for unconventional crime stories.


Refresh and try again. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The plot was fantastic too. That’s why he saves that pigeon——and vows to find out who tortured the bird. I liked the mythical riders sort of like the Wild Hunt but French-style but the book felt too busy cramming in multiple murders that didn’t really tie together all that well. Refresh and try again. Although the ending sequence goes on for close to fifty pages – which I still struggled to accept. See 2 questions about The Ghost Riders of Ordebec….

While Danglard and Adamsberg have collided, ramshead to ramshead in the past, on various issues, this latest friction is elevated to the level of near-hostility which is difficult to appreciate without context, and yet seems so absurd at first glance.

This time is no different. If you haven’t read Fred Vargas yet, what are you waiting for?? Robespierre komt er ook aan te pas Zijn schitterende redevoeringen.

She separated her public persona as a writer from her scientific persona by adopting the pseudonym Fred Vargas.

Temps glaciaires (Commissaire Adamsberg #10) by Fred Vargas

And yes, I will be reading everything else she has written. She found writing was a way to combine her interests and relax from her job as a scientist. But I had loads of fun reading this book and I got rather attached to its weird cast of characters. Now I know Fred is an award winning writer and the Commissaire Adamsberg, even if this is the ninth in the series, it could be read as a standalone thriller. This series is unique and original, filled with imagination and a love of the land and people of France.

Infatti ti ci vagras. Perhaps readers like the familiarity and I am just a weirdo who wants to see secondary characters grow and flourish.

What makes things even more confusing is that the deaths also seem linked to a secretive Association for the Study of the Writings of Maximilien Robespierre. I still prefer tight, dryly ironic mystery writing. A more contemporary connection is discovered, they also attended the Association for the Study of norti Writings of Maximilien Robespierre, a historical reenactment society.


Son passati due anni. Give me some subaquatic credit.

I was at Powells the other day discussing great mystery writers with one of their employees who recommended Pierre Lemaitre. I’m not a huge murder mystery fan, so it’s not surprising that I didn’t really enjoy this book.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. But for some reason it works, largely because Vargas takes her characters and their quirks very seriously: These spectral horsemen ride through Northern France collecting the souls of evildoers and any living person spotted riding with them is sure to die a dej death soon after. Surely after all these years of collaboration, the reader muses inwardly, they must know each other well enough to know this is just petulance, on either side.

A woman is found dead in her bath and at first it is thought she has committed suicide, but a strange symbol is found near the body. View all 14 comments. As a warning, though, this is not for everyone. Which tends to lead to, um, you know, interesting conundrums and predicaments and stuff.
