    1 thought on “This Night's Foul Work”

    1. I am enamoured of this mystery series by Fred Vargas. After reading the first in the Commissaire Adamsberg series, I promptly went out and picked another off the shelf, which happens to be Vol #7, the second-to-last of the volumes translated into English. A new novel, (An Uncertain Place has been released in the U.S. in 2011). Since some of the events refer to earlier books in the series, one should probably read them in order, but the central mystery is easy enough to follow. This is such a spe [...]

    2. A priori, je pensais avoir déjà lu ce roman (je l'ai marqué comme "lu" sur , mais pour une fois, je l'ai même rangé dans l'étagère "romans policiers", et j'ai été radine en lui donnant rapidement deux ou trois étoiles). Et bien non, dès les premières pages j'ai réalisé qu'en fait je n'avais jamais ouvert ce livre de ma vie – on n'oublie pas certains de ses passages – mais cette confusion décrit assez bien mon rapport avec Fred Vargas : j'en avais déjà lu un, un peu vite sans [...]

    3. I love this author so much -- I try to think of people I could phone to read out whole pages so that they might hear what is delighting my heart! I love the characters she creates, their peculiarities so lovingly described, each weakness also a strength that her eccentric Commissaire sees and draws on -- her books are about acceptance and forgiveness and stretching one's beliefs and credulity and holding onto hope and being loyal to one's own tribe, the place and people you belong to.She tells m [...]

    4. Este livro é parado. Parado até. . . meio do livro ou um pouco até mais de meio do livro e eu não gosto disso em policiais. Gosto de "acção" logo a partir da primeira página, gosto que a história me envolva e gosto de pormenores sórdidos. Este livro. . . também os tem. Aliás, tem personagens carismáticas que dão um toque especial, que tanto podem ser enigmáticas como confusas. Desde o início somos enredados na trama e conhecemos pessoas com as suas características específicas.Co [...]

    5. Here we go again, Jean-Baptiste. As I said in one of my other reviews these novels of Vargas are definitely characters-driven books. And I constantly find them original and refreshing. If you relish quirky and eccentric protagonists, if you like an odd sense of humour and if you don’t mind convoluted if not far-fetched at times intrigue you should be satisfied with Fred Vargas novels either. I definitely enjoyed following intricacies of Adamsberg mind while he was following rather devious intr [...]

    6. No one pens a policier like Fred Vargas (aka Frédérique Audoin-Rouzeau, a French medieval historian and archaeologist). Her Commissaire Adamsberg novels aren't only a cut above the usual series fiction; they're in a class of their own. There's Adamsberg, to start with, an absent-minded savant, plus his equally odd team of detectives. But what gives these books their specific flavor is the way Vargas infuses her historical and scientific knowledge into the convolutions of her plots, and the pec [...]

    7. Normally I wouldn't pick up a book in the middle of a series, but this beckoned to me from a neighborhood little free library and the author's name is Fred and it seemed different from anything I've read before (I don't think I've read any other French detective fun).Initially I was captivated and entertained, then I started snorting & thinking the characters were super stupid with the virgin thing and their slowness unraveling certain clues and horrible with the jealous privacy-invasion thi [...]

    8. Paris, upper Normandy, stag hearts, murder, grave robbers, immortality potions, what’s not to like? A perfect distraction. I’ll read more of Fred’s work, I think. She’s good.

    9. Je n’ose rien dévoiler de l’intrigue pour ne pas gâcher le plaisir de lecture. Je peux seulement divulguer que le commissaire aménage dans une maison qui est, selon son voisin - un vieil italien manchot -, hantée par une sainte ayant tuée de ses mains sept femmes avant de périr sous celles d’un tanneur et qu’un nouvel élément, une vielle connaissance du commissaire, vient ajouter sa pierre à la déjà très hétéroclite brigade. Il faut savourer ce roman, se laisser planer aux [...]

    10. Ella siempre lo vuelve a hacer. Tramas sutilmente dispersas, lineas que se bifurcan y se vuelven a bifurcar, historias que suenan a cuento chino, ¿De dónde sale esto? (o WTF) y de repente ¡Luz! todo cobra sentido. Con erudición e imaginación (una mixtura fantástica) Fred Vargas nos relata nuevos episodios en la vida y la carrera del comisario Adamsberg: un fantasma en su casa, aparentemente llamada Clarisa, una dulce monja que asesinaba a quienes iban a su casa atraídos por la promesa de [...]

    11. Prendete una sciagurata creaturina che soffre di ipersonnia (esiste, esiste), una sfortunata lettrice che non può permettersi di leggere in una posizione troppo confortevole per non rischiare di addormentarsi in men che non si dica (che cosa ci posso fare? Dormirei anche in piedi se potessi!); considerate, inoltre, il contesto in cui cerca di ritagliarsi tempo prezioso per dedicarsi agli amati libri: giornate afose di metà agosto, trascorse alla scrivania nel malinconico tentativo di studiare [...]

    12. Je retrouve avec bonheur le commissaire Adamsberg et son équipe Cette série vaut plus pour son écriture et la peinture de personnalités très "françaises" que pour l'intrigue policière parfois un peu trop tirée par les cheveux (encore que souvent les motivations humaines ont de quoi surprendre !)J'adore la façon d'écrire de VARGAS, les images employées toujours renouvelées, les pensées intimes dévoilées ; les comportements attachés aux régions à la fois particuliers et ordinaire [...]

    13. Este livro foi a minha estreia com esta autora. Despertou em mim sentimentos contraditórios.Comecei por gostar bastante, mas a meio do livro comecei a sentir-me confusa relativamente a alguns acontecimentos Contudo, mais para o final voltou a despertar o meu interesse e assim se manteve até ao fim! :)Com um final inesperado, deixou-me com curiosidade para ler o segundo livro da autora, também publicado pela Porto Editora "Um lugar incerto".Recomendo :)

    14. Vive le commissaire Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg!Fremragende sommerferielæsning, som hæver niveauet for krimigenren generelt. Adamsberg slår ham der sure gamle leverpostejsfarvede med flere længder, har glemt hvad han hedder. Sprudlende sprog og levende underholdende karakterer og ikke mindst et fuldstændigt fortænkt og vanvittigt plot.

    15. I really love this series, but this specific book was a misstep, both in the ancillary characters and in some of the police methods used to solve the mystery (who uses a cat as a bloodhound?)

    16. First Sentence: By fixing his curtain to one side with a clothes-peg, Lucio could better observe the new neighbour at his leisureInsp. Adamsburg has bought a new house which, according to a neighbor, is haunted. When two men are found with their throats cut, causing him to ask a favor from pathologist Ariane Lagarde, with whom he did not have a good working relationship in the past. Upon learning an elderly nurse, whom Adamsburg imprisoned as a serial killer, has escaped he starts to think the c [...]

    17. THIS NIGHT’S FOUL WORK. (2006). Fred Vargas. *****.This is a prime example of a nearly perfect mystery novel. The author has provided the reader with a suitably complex and intricate plot – including a fair number or relevant tangents – pursued by a cadre of French police led by the unique Commissaire Adamsberg. Ms. Vargas provides us with a menu of the Special Crimes Department’s makeup: “You’ve seen them, you’ve seen us all. Adamsberg and his inaccessible wanderings. Danglard, th [...]

    18. Una scoperta recente e felice: Fred Vargas, che non conoscevo affatto, mi è davvero piaciuta e sicuramente questo non sarà l’unico libro che di lei leggerò. La struttura di base che regge la storia è quella del romanzo poliziesco e, dunque, come in ogni “giallo” che si rispetti, abbiamo un assassino e delle vittime. Ma non è per questo che si legge il libro quasi con bramosia, bensì perché ci si innamora quasi subito dei personaggi che ci descrive e del modo limpido, ironico, esatto [...]

    19. Primo incontro con Fred Vargas e si, lo so che questo è il settimo volume della serie di romanzi dedicati al commissario Adamsberg, ma lo so adesso, purtroppo non lo sapevo quando ho comprato il romanzo! E va bè, sono un po' tonta, pazienza.Ho considerato di mettere di nuovo in panchina il romanzo e poi magari riprenderlo una volta letti gli altri, ma sono contenta di non averlo fatto!È veramente un libro che mi ha conquistato, l'ho divorato in due giorni e, anche se non volevo assolutamente [...]

    20. Além de a historia não fazer sentido a autora tem uma escrita demasiado estranha que não beneficiou com a má tradução. Os diálogos parecem escritos por crianças do quarto ano.-Quem fez isso- declarou um conviva alto e encurvado ao fundo da mesa-, não é um homem.-É um animal.-Pior do que um animal.-Exactamente.-Para mim- prosseguiu Robert-, foi um jovem. Um obcecado.-Um obcecado não é necessariamente um jovem.-Porque um jovem obcecado, quando envelhece, torna-se um velho obcecado.-É [...]

    21. Novela negra o novela de enigmas como le gusta a la autora que se definan sus novelas. La brigada criminal dirigida por el comisario Adamsberg es un mundo dividido entre positivistas, liderados por Danglard, y paleadores de nubes, fieles seguidores de Adamsberg y sus intuiciones o deducciones intangibles. Mundo que en cierta medida me recuerda mucho a la familia Malaussène de Pennac, surrealista y vitalista, lleno de humor casi siempre negro, que me engancha. Novela adictiva, de esas que no qui [...]

    22. C'est toujours intéressant de commencer une série de livres par le milieu. Ici cela n'empêche pas la compréhension de l'histoire, même si certains détails m'ont sûrement échappé. L'histoire n'est pas parfaite mais reste agréable à lire et à suivre, en grande partie grâce à l'écriture fascinante de Vargas. Un bon retour dans la littérature française pour moi qui ne lisait quasiment plus qu'en anglais ces dernières années.

    23. è che adamsberg dopo il canada mi turba certo stavolta non ha minacciato nessuno con una bottiglia ma è inquieto veyrenc nonostante tutto è adorabile.vo metterlo nella lista di ciò che devo procurarmi:-uno orso gatto-un procione-uno scheletro vivo di dinosauro-qualcuno che mi parla in versiah si e poi voglio anche un gatto come palla cioè un gatto palla (nel senso delle dimensioni) ce l'ho già ma io ne voglio uno come lui *-*

    24. Quando penso que mais nada me vai surpreender eis que surge esta autora. Há algum tempo que namorava este livro e posso dizer que valeu mesmo a pena! Acho que fui enfeitiçada; é um policial diferente e estranho mas no bom sentido. A riqueza do enredo e das personagens vai concerteza perdurar na minha memória. Mal posso esperar para ferrar o dente noutro livro de Fred Vargas, imperdível! ;)

    25. One of my favorite crime authors. If you like mystery genre don't pass her up. This one was very very good as usual. Takes place in a region of France I have visited but not as well known as some other areas. She evokes mystery and wonder. Her characters are unusual and there is always a twist.

    26. Fred Vargas is a woman, and a mystery writer who sets her oblique, enchanted murder stories in the familiar frame of the policier format. Which is a help, because what she's really after is more of an Alice In Wonderland trajectory. Tracking a generally plausible crime holds the story on the tracks. The standard elements of the policier-- the rustling sounds and stifled scream at midnight in the hedgerows, the discovery of the body, the notification of the detectives, the "police-line-do-not-cro [...]

    27. New novel about an unlikely serious crime squad in Paris, who are faced with seemingly random occurrences: dead stags, dead drug dealers, old reliquaries, dead spinsters, new colleagues and the voice of the Earth. "This whole thing, from insubstantial beginnings to improbable reasoning, made a completely unbelievable farrago, detached from reality."After the last novel - which displaced our characters and their improbable commissaire, changed them almost beyond any recognition, and spoiled my fu [...]

    28. Ritorno alle origini.Dopo aver letto la serie sugli evangelisti, questo romanzo della serie su Adamsberg è un lieto ritorno alle origini. E’ un romanzo completo e anche un po’ più spesso, sia come contenuto che come numero di pagine, di quelli della serie degli Evangelisti che, a confronto, sembrano quasi delle bozze.Qui anche i personaggi secondari vengono approfonditi, sia come descrizione fisica che caratteriale, che come storia personale.Lo stile è quello ormai conosciuto della Vargas [...]

    29. Well this book was interesting to say the best. I was assigned this book for my one of my university classes, and had pretty much no opinion, but to read the book. So as all my reviews go lets start with the Pros: One of my favourite aspects of this book was the layers that come with it. The book starts off with detective Adamsberg, and his colleagues investigating a murder of two big, bulky drug dealers. There were to so many characters, and past lives of the characters that it was definitely a [...]
