Tim Davys ½ 3 free read review Amberville 103 Cholas Duva kung i Ambervilles undre värld är övertygad om att det finns en Dödslista Och att han står på den Allt är över om inte hans namn stryks Eric Björn får under hot uppdraget att åtgärda detta Hitta listan och stryka Duvan Klarar han inte av det går det illa för hans käraste Emma Kanin Eric är skakad och söker genast upp sina gamla kumpaner Ormen Marek Tom Tom K Well this is uite an oddity a noir thriller with a cast of stuffed animals The story goes like this Eric Bear has a happy life married to the beautiful Emma Rabbit and with a good job in advertising But in his past Eric was involved with some shady characters one of whom now comes calling Nicholas Dove who has heard that his name is on the Death List which means if the tales are to be believed that the Chauffeurs will shortly come to escort him on the ultimate one way journey Dove demands that Eric find the Death List and get his name removed from it or Emma will be the one who pays the price The job should be straightforward enough because the Death List is just a fable but Eric gets his old gang back together all the same and of course the truth proves complicated than anyone thoughtSo this Scandinavian crime novel the author is Swedish Tim Davys is a pseudonym is far from the norm and could have been ridiculous but it s not What is perhaps most striking about Amberville is that Davys tells his tale with a completely straight face one might laugh briefly at the thought of say a stuffed dove walking around with two stuffed gorillas for heavies but not for very long because it s not funny at all in the context of the story it s deadly serious Davys creates his world with such integrity that one can t help but take it seriously His control of voice is also superb switching between different characters whose voices are all distinctive no matter how brief their turn at narration and here I must also acknowledge Paul Norlen s excellent work as translatorDriving the plot of Amberville is a mystery is there a Death List and if so who s behind it which is deeper for reader s than it is for the characters because we have uestions to ask what is this place Mollisan Town inhabited by walking talking living stuffed animals What goes on behind the scenes to make it all work the inhabitants of Mollisan Town know that the young animals are manufactured somewhere and delivered to the city in vans but no one thinks to uestion any furtherWell Amberville is the first novel in a series though that s not clear from the edition I was reading so the answers aren t all forthcoming here That s not a problem in itself but I do think it has a knock on effect it seems to me that the major revelations for this volume are made some time before the end leaving the rest of the book to be mostly i dotting and t crossing which feels somewhat anti climactic This is unfortunate because most of the rest of Amberville is pacy and engaging with an added helping of speculation about the nature of good and evil courtesy of Eric s brother TeddyMy misgivings about the conclusion of Amberville make me feel a little less inclined to find out where Davys takes his series but the momentum of the earlier parts of the book is considerable It s worth a look I think Tremors of Fury The Days of Ash and Fury #2 removed from it or Emma will be the one who pays the price The job should be straightforward enough because the Death List is just a fable but Eric gets his old gang back together all the same and of course the truth proves complicated than anyone thoughtSo this Scandinavian crime novel the author is Swedish Tim Davys is a pseudonym is far from the norm and could have been How Julian and Nigel Turned Each Other Gay Inadvertently or So
