Murder at the Savoy FOURTH ESTATE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The sixth book in the classic Martin Beck detective series from the 1960s - the novels that shaped the future of Scandinavian crime writing. Hugely acclaimed, the Martin Beck series were the original Scandinavian crime novels and have inspired the writings of Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell and Jo Nesbo. Written in the 1960s, 10 books completed in 10 years, they are the work of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo - a husband and wife team from Sweden. They follow the fortunes of the detective Martin Beck, whose enigmatic, taciturn character has inspired countless other policemen in crime fiction; without his creation Ian Rankin's John Rebus or Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallander may never have been conceived. The novels can be read separately, but are best read in chronological order, so the reader can follow the characters' development and get drawn into the series as a whole. When Viktor Palmgren, a powerful industrialist, is casually shot during an after-dinner speech, the repercussions - both on the international money markets and on the residents of the small coastal town of Malmo - are widespread. Chief Inspector Martin Beck is called in to help catch a killer nobody, not even the victim, was able to identify. He begins a systemic search for the friends, enemies, business associates and call girls who may have wanted Palmgren dead - but in the process he finds to his dismay that he has nothing but contempt for the victim and sympathy for the murderer...

'How well do you know your wife, Mr Crookham?' Peter Crookham is delayed in traffic on his way home to dinner with his wife, Mariana, and his journalist brother, Andy. He arrives back to a bloodbath: his brother is dead - covered in knife wounds - and his wife, in a near-catatonic state, is bathed in blood. Convinced Mariana is incapable of murder, Peter vows to discover what happened and clear her name. But he is forced to question his conviction when he discovers what Andy was secretly investigating prior to his death - Mariana's past. In search of answers, Peter must visit the former East Berlin, Mariana's childhood home. But all he can glean is that Mariana's mysterious past is somehow linked to the then East German security service, the STASI. Interleaved with Peter's story is that of a man present in East Germany in the late 1970s. This elusive, nefarious figure appears to be the connection, the piece of the jigsaw to put everything in place - a man who it seems was affiliated with the STASI. But this man, Peter will discover, is more than that. Much more. And so is Mariana Crookham. Blood Relative is an atmospheric page-turner that brings the often-grim realities of Socialist Berlin to life. A murder mystery-come-psychological thriller with a dark underlying mystery, it grips you tight and keeps you guessing until the very last page.

Queer Child, or Growing Sideways in the Twentieth Century COMBINED ACADEMIC PUBLISHERS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Children are thoroughly, shockingly queer, as Kathryn Bond Stockton explains in "The Queer Child", where she examines children's strangeness, even some children's subliminal 'gayness', in the twentieth century. Estranging, broadening, darkening forms of children emerge as this book illuminates the child queered by innocence, the child queered by colour, the child queered by Freud, the child queered by money, and the grown homosexual metaphorically seen as a child (or as an animal), alongside the gay child. What might the notion of a 'gay' child do to conceptions of the child? How might it outline the pain, closets, emotional labours, sexual motives, and sideways movements that attend all children, however we deny it? Engaging and challenging the work of sociologists, legal theorists, and historians, Stockton coins the term 'growing sideways' to describe ways of growing that defy the usual sense of growing 'up' in a linear trajectory toward full stature, marriage, reproduction, and the relinquishing of childish ways. Growing sideways is a mode of irregular growth involving odd lingerings, wayward paths, and fertile delays. Contending that children's queerness is rendered and explored best in fictional forms, including literature, film, and television, Stockton offers dazzling readings of works ranging from novels by Henry James, Radclyffe Hall, Virginia Woolf, Djuna Barnes, and Vladimir Nabokov to the movies Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, The Hanging Garden, Heavenly Creatures, Hoop Dreams, and the 2005 remake of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The result is a fascinating look at children's masochism, their interactions with paedophiles and animals, their unfathomable, hazy motives (leading them at times into sex, seduction, delinquency, and murder), their interracial appetites, and their love of consumption and destruction through the alluring economy of sweets.
