wearing Odin masks Sigh Shouting at books doesn t do any good I ve discovered It doesn t help that the guy with this incredible lack of knowledge about anything is the main detective Jan Fabel and he s supposed to have a degree in history And he s a book collector Clearly not ones that have actual information in them But I m being a bit disingenuous I m about 25% into this exceptional crime novel and absolutely loving it This is a series I ll definitely pursue As ever, I ll complete this review when I m done.Finished Well, that kept up the high energy excitement right to the end This is an excellent crime novel Other than being ludicrously PC, which to be honest I m coming to expect in every single novel these days, I highly recommend this first in the Jan Fabel series I can t vouch for the authenticity of the setting in the Hamburg police force, but the novel is packed with background and facts about the whole post War German situation although this interesting fleshing out never comes over as laboured This was gory, exciting, and very well written Recommended The last crime novels I read set in Hamburg were Cay Rademacher s Inspector Stave books set in the devastation and deprivation of the immediate aftermath of Germany s defeat in WWII, so I was very interested to try Craig Russell s Jan Faber series, a modern era take on crime and punishment in the city Interestingly, Russell is a Scot, author of the Lennox crime novels set in Glasgow, my home town Both cities have a certain reputation and don t appear automatically in lists of places people wan The last crime novels I read set in Hamburg were Cay Rademacher s Inspector Stave books set in the devastation and deprivation of the immediate aftermath of Germany s defeat in WWII, so I was very interested to try Craig Russell s Jan Faber series, a modern era take on crime and punishment in the city Interestingly, Russell is a Scot, author of the Lennox crime novels set in Glasgow, my home town Both cities have a certain reputation and don t appear automatically in lists of places people want to visit I am intrigued by this novel s mix of gruesome serial murder, multinational crime syndicates, mythology, politics and history It fits in, too, with my current preoccupation with Germany I recently watched on Walter Presents from More4 Nick s Law featuring Til Shweiger as Nikolas Schiller, a Hamburg policeman who uses unorthodox methods against underworld criminal gangs in the city, a German Dirty Harry, part of German TVs long running Tatort series So I have some familiarity going in to the Jan Fabel books, which helps with terminology and suchlike Some common themes, too, I can see already.I m not far into the novel but it seems odd Fabel and his colleagues have never encountered the blood eagle before their current murder investigation Or does my familiarity with the concept derive from an unhealthy interest in serial killer fiction and historical novels featuring Vikings that s not widely shared Jan Fabel is an interesting character, known as the English detective for his mixed Scottish Craig Russell is making a dig here, one all Scots have a sensitivity to, and I speak as one and German parentage He has the usual broken marriage and guilt about how his job interferes with his personal life He s good at it, though, the job that is A clever and intuitive detective I look forward to getting to know him better.Finished the book today Very much enjoyed it, though sensitive readers might find the violence and gore too much The ending is abrupt and seems like a setup for the sequel Or perhaps it s just ambiguous and open to readers interpretation There was one particular twist seemed so obvious to me it made Jan Fabel appear too slow for a supposed clever detective, especially since he s half Scottish Anyway, the climax is tense and exciting, and I like how Russell brings his narrative threads together It s muchthan a typical serial killer novel, exploring right wing mythology and the way charismatic leaders can manipulate others to their will A good start to a series I will definitely be continuing to read Also, I really want to visit Hamburg now I ve actually had the pleasure of writing the German TV adaptation for this novel Did I like the novel you bet I like dark and twisted, I like grisly and Craig s delivered on that and ever so muchHe s created, with Hauptkommissar Jan Fabel of the Hamburg police, a truly iconic cop A man in the middle of life, a good man, for once not a torn, broken or morally corrupt cop he s a good man, all around, thoughtful, smart of course , always tries to think of everyone The novelist lo I ve actually had the pleasure of writing the German TV adaptation for this novel Did I like the novel

that love is beautifully woven into the pages If you ve never been to Hamburg after reading this novel you ll want to explore it.The case, as all of Jan Fabel s cases, is steeped in Northern mythology I absolutely love that In this and subesquent Fabel tales, there s always an additional layer of murky, dark myth riding along In Blood Eagle the myth is Viking in Origin, but Craig makes it highly relevant when he illiminates that Northern Hamburg was nothan a stone s throw from the Vikings A bloody Viking ritual, an elusive serial killer, a dark Nazi past linked with it all there s several layers of dark mystery to unravel until Fabel ends the reign of the Blood Eagle killer Amazing journey thrue the mind of the killers..I think i ve become fan of this writer sometime thrue this book, the first book from him that i ve read, but i hope its not the last one With Blood Eagle, Russell pens a classic police thriller complete with gruesome murders, organised crime, police corruption and a driven yet flawed detective The only thing missing is by modern standards the pacing is a little slow.Nonetheless Blood Eagle is a compelling piece on par with Thomas Harris, and James Patterson s earlier novels Probably not for late night reading if you want safe dreams. Blood Eagle is the first book in Craig Russell s series featuring Principal Chief Commisar Jan Fabel of the KriPo in Hamburg This book is reallya thriller than a mystery, in some ways closely mimicking the sensational thrillers that are usually set in America A serial killer is on the loose a killer who leaves behind victims who have been murdered in what seems to be a brutal and ritualistic manner Add to this the politics of Germany, the Ukraine, and Turkey and you re left guessing Blood Eagle is the first book in Craig Russell s series featuring Principal Chief Commisar Jan Fabel of the KriPo in Hamburg This book is reallya thriller than a mystery, in some ways closely mimicking the sensational thrillers that are usually set in America A serial killer is on the loose a killer who leaves behind victims who have been murdered in what seems to be a brutal and ritualistic manner Add to this the politics of Germany, the Ukraine, and Turkey and you re left guessing what direction is the right one for Fabel to be taking so that he can put an end to the killing.The writing flows nicely, the characters are well developed, the plot is solid though a bit confusing at times I had to use my usual way of keeping track of character connections by sticking little notes at the front of the book I liked the descriptions of Hamburg, of the city and of the people who live there All in all a fun read that kept me guessing and wondering I ll readof Russell s novels after this one Once in a while I take my time and read some mystery books As much as I would like sharing some really whimsical thoughts about them, I always find it hard to describe what they are all about.The plot is not very different from every other mystery novel I m afraid, but the writing style was drawing me in, so I ended up finishing this novel in less than two days.Full review here Once in a while I take my time and read some mystery books As much as I would like sharing some really whimsical thoughts about them, I always find it hard to describe what they are all about.The plot is not very different from every other mystery novel I m afraid, but the writing style was drawing me in, so I ended up finishing this novel in less than two days.Full review here A Very good thriller and a beautifull description of Hamburg It kept me reading non stop It s the first of inspector Fabel series, and for me it won t be the last I also liked Lennox , the first of the other series I think Mr Russell is a Very good writter.
