Retorno del profesor de baile, El (Maxi) (Spanish Edition)

En diciembre de 1945, un avion britanico aterriza en Buckenburg (Alemania) y de el desciende un hombre con una pequeña bolsa negra que se dirige a la prision de Hamelin, donde estan encerrados doce criminales de guerra alemanes: su mision consiste en ejecutar a esos peligrosos asesinos. Cincuenta y cuatro años despues, en 1999, Herbert Molin, un policia sueco ya jubilado que vive apaciblemente en su granja, situada en el pueblecito de Härdjedalen, muere de manera brutal: literalmente, el asesino lo ha matado a latigazos; ademas, la policia descubre alrededor del cadaver huellas sanguinolentas muy extrañas, como si alguien hubiera ejecutado en torno a el unos pasos de baile. Un antiguo compañero de Molin, el joven Stefan Lindman, decide viajar a Härdjedalen para averiguar lo ocurrido, pese a que no esta en muy buenas condiciones de salud. Sin embargo, poco a poco ira descubriendo misteriosas conexiones entre la muerte de Molin, los colaboracionistas durante la segunda guerra mundial y los grupos neonazis de la actualidad. Para Lindman ya no habra marcha atras: cada pista lo impelira a seguir adelante para saber la verdad.

Mankell's novel is an indictment of the rise of hate groups in modern Sweden where xenophobic groups like Strong Sweden and other neo-Nazi organizations promote their racial hatred towards others. One can almost feel the cold snow and the isolation of Sweden in this well written novel of murder,... ...more

This is the best of the Henning Mankell books. The murder that starts off the book is incomprehensible, but the hanging of Nazi war criminals in the prologue gives us a hint. As usual the Swedish gloom and weather sets the tone and the deep understanding of motivation drives the book. ...more

Having read several of Mankell's Kurt Wallander books, I thought I would try a mystery by him not in that series. My evaluation: fully as great and satisfying as the Wallander books!

THE RETURN OF THE DANCING MASTER contains an added bonus. One of the most unforgetably named detectives in all of... ...more

The Return of the Dancing Master features a new Henning Mankell detective named Stefan Lindman. Coincidentally, perhaps, a character named Stefan Lindman is Linda Wallander’s odd, unconventional boyfriend in the first BBC4 TV series. He was killed off at the end of the first series. This series s... ...more

Otra novela negra de Mankell. Con diferencia, el tipo del que más libros he leído en mi vida. Probablemente sea por dos cosas: porque son buenos y porque son muy entretenidos.

A lo que vamos. Este no es de Wallander, sino de un policía de otra región sueca. Es bastante parecido a su compatriota de... ...more

In the prologue of Henning Mankell’s The Return of the Dancing Master, I thought I recognized a character from a recent TV movie called The Last Hangman, featuring the life and times of Albert Pierrepoint. (actor:Timothy Spall) I was wrong about the novel character’s exact identity; Mankell’s han... ...more

Mankell kann es besser

Wenngleich die Überschrift "Mankell kann es besser" lautet, heißt das nicht, dass das Buch schlecht wäre. Im Sinne von "Das Bessere ist der Feind des Guten" - so ist es hier eben auch - es ist jedoch bestimmt nicht sein schlechtestes Werk. Gute Mittelklasse eben - aber was f... ...more
