    Book details

Murder in the Dark sports a winning combination of engaging crime narrative and cool, unsentimental appraisal of Scandinavian society (as seen through the eyes of its shabby, unconventional anti-hero). There are elements of the book which now seem quite as relevant as when they were written, and like all the most accomplished writing in the Nordic Noir field, there is an acute and well-observed sense of place throughout the novel. The descriptions of Copenhagen channel the poetic sensibility which is the author's own: 'Copenhagen is at its most beautiful when seen out of a taxi at midnight, right at that magical moment when one day dies and another is born, and the printing presses are buzzing with the morning newspapers.'

Review Text

  • By Simon Clarke on 25 December 2013

    First published in 1981,this Danish classic Nordic Noirnovel has at last been translated and published in English.The tale is narrated in the first person by a malejournalist.He is somewhat of an outsider,his close friends are''my record player,my tape recorder,and my whiskey bottle.''When he finds himself a possible suspect in a murder enquiry,he commences his own investigations in parallel with thepolice.This takes him to places he knows well,seedy bars andhotels,the underbelly of Copenhagen.A fascinating ,distinctively written novel ,that is a veryfine example of the genre.

    Good to see Turell in English, I'm reading the next one of his in Italian as I can't find an English version. Very personable characterisation. I'll read more as I find them.
