Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Sometimes it takes a while to get to the right place in order to appreciate the best things. And I enjoy most of the quirky team at the dusty Serious Crimes brigade in Paris.

Yet her books are definitely character-driven focusing not only on their physical presence, but their personal characteristics. As Adamsberg investigates in his round-about way, a few more killings take place.

The Serious Crime Unit, of which he is the head, is a collection of strange and unusual ffed. I re-read “An Uncertain Place” which is the previous book I think.

Unica pecca, la storia.

La cavalcata dei morti : Fred Vargas :

But it had been enough to turn him to stone. I did however learn a lot about vragas French Revolution and Robespierre in particular which was interesting – at first. This a knotted mystery that Adamsberg refers to as bundle dsi seaweed that refuses to be untangled for some time.

This series is unique and original, filled with imagination and a love of the land and people of France. This makes them feel like real people, regardless of how weird the lot of them are.

The Ghost Riders of Ordebec

There are the disciplined proceduralists, the cavalcatw gleaners, the talkers, the auditory, the visual, and the intuitive. Good for you and stuff! Pourtant, Temps Glaciaires ne m’a pas convaincue.


I can see the locale, I can taste the food they are eating. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. In the end, his actions threaten to break apart not only Danglard’s faith and affection for the commissaire, but pulls apart the entire division of colleagues.

The Ghost Riders of Ordebec by Fred Vargas

I didn’t read this in order. I also have very, very little familiarity with the mystery genre. These spectral horsemen ride through Northern France collecting the souls of evildoers and any living person spotted riding with them is sure to die a horrific death soon after.

Adamsberg’s crack team is made up of cwvalcata narcoleptic, an intellectual who spontaneously comments on the situation in rhyming verse, an intellectual who’s mostly drunk and can quote 11th century manuscripts from memory, and a woman who is so imposing in her impressiveness that all the characters feel the need tred mention it any time she comes up in conversation.

And yes, I will be reading everything else she frred written. As a warning, though, this is not for everyone. Fine del commento A margine conservo sempre il dubbio se siano gli autori di polizieschi in serie soprattutto quelli con personaggi cavalcsta caratterizzati a patire un inesorabile progressivo deficit di ispirazione o se invece, dopo N episodi subentri nel lettore un fisiologico senso di insoddisfazione nei confronti di un rituale ormai stantio.


The doctor with amazing physio powers was locked up at the end of this book. Just unbelievably delightful to follow Vargas’s process! We even discover that he had a child, for showing to us that Robespierre was normal. None of them believes in frer four horsemen theory, but that belief was ingrained into the members of the village. With three local men identified among the riders, and one of them already missing, it is not long before the bod When a terrified woman begs Commissaire Adamsberg for help with a murder that has not happened yet he is intrigued.

The problem is that people grow and change. Until the page Ultimately, however, this novel dragged on to the point where I had to use toothpicks to keep my eyes open as I slogged through each succeeding chapter.

Back at the station, Adamsberg rescues a pigeon whose feet have been bound together, and hands the nearly dead bird over to his team for rehabilitation. Which is, come to think of it, why I enjoy this series so much.

Now I grant that Vargas is also a professional historian, but this is actually the second case of Ms Vargas frec a major plot device in the nine books. Ultimately, of course, the real killer is identified and nabbed, but not before we are presented with umpteen potential suspects and an equal number of potential avenues of approach.
