Fakirs author Antonin Varenne review ä 3 Can he expect from a man who bled to death in his own excruciating SM stage show Now there's a maverick police lieutenant on the prowl who thinks that Musgrave's suicide was murder Guérin might not look like much but he's one of the few honest officers on the force As the horrific extent. It s possible to believe at least for the first few pages that Bed of Nails is another uirky policier in the spirit of the Commissaire Adamsberg series by Fred Vargas and then it starts to sink in these characters aren t Gallic eccentrics they are truly damaged Gu rin the chief detective in charge of suicides scratches his head so hard he leaves bloody scars across his scalp while the suicide at the center of the story is a performance artist who spears himself onstage The beautiful blond reuired in every noir novel runs into walls a pet parrot plucks himself and I won t even start with the crimes of the corrupt police department Varenne s pacing didn t uite work for me but somehow he s managed to write a book that s completely bleak yet still has moments of desolate charm French fiction Chrysanthemum rin the chief detective in charge of suicides scratches his head so hard he leaves bloody scars across his scalp while the suicide at the center of the story is a performance artist who spears himself onstage The beautiful blond After the Falls reuired in every noir novel Then the Americans Came Voices from Vietnam runs into walls a pet parrot plucks himself and I won t even start with the crimes of the corrupt police department Varenne s pacing didn t uite work for me but somehow he s managed to write a book that s completely bleak yet still has moments of desolate charm French fiction

Fakirs author Antonin Varenne review ä 3 It's as if he's being mocked from beyond the grave When John Nichols arrives to identify the body of an old friend he is immediately caught up in the detritus of Alan Musgrave's life the side of Paris the tourists don't see where everyone has a past but very few count on a future But what. Varenne has conjured up a group of odd characters in this dark uirky and philosophical story Guerin is the police headuarters chief suicide investigator and is piecing together links between recent suicides that forms the plot for the early part of the novel at least His parrot abuses his visitors at home and his sidekick Lambert is unpopular with his other colleagues and an outsider The parallel storyline is of an ex American diplomat living off the grid in rural France who is in Paris after the death of an old friend an ex Marine with PTSD who last work was in an S and M bar as a torture artist Few things are as they seem and this is certainly not a straightforward detective story The stories within the story are a feature of the novel and it is therefore best approached in a different way by the reader It falls between the noir and literary genres it s philosophical aspects meeting with the emotional bleakness of the characters and the seedy underbelly Of Parisian life
