Format: Paperback
Brothers Grimm and, like the folk stories themselves, have a number of hidden messages. Jan Fabel, of the Hamburg Murder Squad, and his team are in a race against time to try to solve the cases and to try to prevent further murders.

This is a fast-paced novel. In addition to the actions around each murder, the reader is drawn into the mind and motivations of the murderer. From the perspective of the investigating team, there are a number of potential suspects and exploring each of these raises the tensions within the story. Even if the reader works out who the murderer is before the end of the story, there is sufficient interest and momentum to keep reading to the end just to tie off the loose ends.

This is the second of Craig Russell's novels to feature Jan Fabel: I've added the other two to my reading list, and this author to my list of fiction favourites.

I watched the movie adaptation on German TV (Wolfsfährte) but missed the last part. Since the movie was made well, I had to buy the book to find out how the story ended. The book is a true page turner, wonderfully crafted, with subtle descriptions of the mental processes and emotional upheavals of the protagonists and an amazing, albeit grim story. The author presents a rather peculiar but interesting (fictional) insert on the Brothers Grimm who were the collectors of folk tales that eventually inspired Hollywood and Disney in Snowwhite, Sleeping Beauty and Red Riding Hood. A great read - but not as bedtime stories for kids!
