    1. Отначало започва много мудно и даже мислех да се отказвам и добре че не го направих. Финалът е истинска красота :) А паралелите с творчеството на братя Грим са уникални и слава на Ктхулу, поне са преведени добре, не са на диалект и не са издадени от ОНЕЗИ :)


    2. A ideia-base está bem orquestrada. Não percebi quem era o assassino até ter feito o que faço muitas vezes: fui ler a última página do livro, que tem apenas 6 linhas. E ali, bem visível, o nome do assassino e o desfecho da história. Escritores, a sério há muita gente que, como eu, tem a mania de ler a última página antes de tempo. Não ponham lá os nomes dos assassinos. Tira a piada toda à coisa Foi o que me aconteceu. Depois de ficar a saber quem era o culpado, li o resto do livro [...]


    3. It's funny how the setting of a book can drastically change your impressions of it. This book, for example, takes place in Germany. More specifically, Hamburg. Now, because I'm lazy I haven't done much research into this book, so I have no idea if the author is German, or if this book is a translation of another German book, or if he's American and just decided to set this book in Germany for whatever reason. Anything's possible.However, being set in Germany, as I read I would run across passage [...]


    4. A crime novel set in Hamburg. Normally, that's two very good reasons for me to not even turn the first page but, hell, I was bored. So I started reading away anyways, not expecting to be remotely interested or touched even peripherally, and the next thing I knew was that it was 6 a.m. and I found myself quite unable to put the damn book down.It has been noted before that the author throws around a fair amount of german vocabulary and, yes, it bothered me as well. And it didn't make any differenc [...]


    5. This, especially when compared to the other Craig Russell novel(s) I have read, was a disappointment. I very much enjoyed the author's Lennox series, set in Scotland, but won't be reading any more of this series set in Germany.It wasn't massively problematic in as far as reading enjoyment was concerned, but it just felt 'too much' in several areas, which grated with me a little. The setting made for a slightly colder and more distanced feel to the tale - almost Nordic crime in style - which prev [...]


    6. I found this to be an unusual approach to a serial killer story. For one thing, it is set in Germany, and all the aspects of the story - names, places, culture, investigative style - are unrepentently German. I don't say that as a criticism. In fact the logic-based, methodical way of investigating that the team hunting this killer employ is actually quite refreshing in comparison to the car-chase, fist-fight, over-the-top approach that American murder stories tend to employ. This was a very cere [...]


    7. Ugh. This book had so much going for it, it really did. The storyline was great, it was just written so badly it was difficult to read!The majot failing of this book was the constant referring to things in German, I don't speak German, so i'd just skim over the words. Or I'd read them, and try to think of a word that was similar to it.Needless to say this made the story confusing!Another thing that peeved me was the reference to the main character in the novel by his full police title in german [...]



    8. Es un libro que me gusto mucho, ya que se me hizo súper interesante la forma en la que se recrean los asesinatos. Y esa sensación de ser yo quien buscaba al culpable no paraba (eso me entusiasmaba más a seguir leyendo) Si te gustan los cuentos de hadas y el crimen este es un buen libro para ti.


    9. Ich wollte einen Krimi lesen und als solcher wurde mir dieses Buch "verkauft". Ich fand das Buch teilweise auch interessant und spannend, nur diese ganze Märchengeschichte hat mir wirklich nicht gefallen, am allerwenigsten die Aufloesung am Ende - Ok, im Englischen heißt das Buch "Brother Grimm"und dem Titel wird es ja wohl auch gerecht, weniger allerdings meinen Erwartungen an einen guten Krimi.Ein früherer Kommentar zum gleichen Buch von mir (als ich ca. ein Drittel gelesen hatte): I know L [...]


    10. Introducing the body of the (first) victim in an unusual or interesting way in any mystery-novel, helps hook the reader. But to keep this theme running and the reader hooked for the next couple of hundred pages, seems to be one of the hardest tasks for any crime-writer. Luckily, Craig Russell, while not delivering a literary masterpiece with ‘Brother Grimm’, keeps the reader racing through the pages of his 400+ paged novel. The pacing is high, the characters – thank to some done to death c [...]


    11. “Me he divertido muchísimo hilando esta oscura historia.” Confiesa Russell en los agradecimientos al final de esta novela. Y no podía yo describirla mejor, es justo la palabra que ha rondado en mi mente desde el inicio, una historia, una novela oscura, neblinosa. Desde que me puse a leerla noté un talento especial en el autor para transmitir la atmósfera y las acciones. Además incluye algo de historia, crítica social y política, sobre todo reflexiona, mira nada más, hasta se da tiemp [...]


    12. Świetny thriller z GENIALNĄ OKŁADKĄ. Dawno nie widziałam równie klimatycznej i estetycznej! Pierwsze skojarzenie po rozpoczęciu lektury - podobieństwo do "Milczenia owiec". Wyraźnie zarysowane sylwetki bohaterów. Każdy ma swój charakter. Jest kimś. Ma swoje wspomnienia, sympatie i pasje. Zaczynamy rozumieć tych ludzi. Akceptować ich zachowania. Myśleć ich rozumem.Poza tym autor bardzo często skłania nas do refleksji nad rzeczywistością i fikcją. Czy tak naprawdę się róż [...]


    13. Novela policiaca. Intriga, asesinatos, sospechosos, investigadores Todo lo habitual en historias de este tipo. Pero hay en esta algo que destaca: los crímenes están relacionados con los Cuentos de los Hermanos Grimm. La trama es normal pero sí tiene algo que te hace querer seguir leyendo. Es un libro ágil, no te estancas 80 páginas para avanzar nada y menos en la historia. Algo que me gustó mucho es que los capítulos son narrados en tercera persona por un narrador omnisciente, lo cual hac [...]


    14. Jan Fabel #2Autor: Craig RussellEditora: BertrandSe pensam que vão encontrar aqui fadas e princesas enganem-se. Este policial começa com um corpo abandonado na areia e uma estranha mensagemApesar de ser parte de um conjunto de livros, funciona bem sozinho já que a história central começa e acaba com este livro. Provavelmente tem uma linha condutora com os restantes mas isso limita-se à personagem principal (Jan Fabel) e a sua vida pessoal.Esta foi sem sombra de dúvida uma boa escolha para [...]


    15. This is a chilling book that I only found because I was looking for things on fairytales for class. Turns out the way the character Jan Fabel describes the fairytales in relation to the german language helped me understand what I wanted from my homework assignment.This is a really good book with lots of interesting plot twist, leaving you not sure how to feel in some cases. Though I must say I did see the last little bit coming but that was only because I'd been studying fairytales and have been [...]


    16. i enjoyed reading this novel, the idea of using Grimm's collections as theme for a serial killer was interesting, although the pattern the killer choose was a little confusing, but hey! he is a mad psychopath after all, a nice read, and with a good back ground about the origin of the stories and the psychology behind it add to a sprinkle of history, yet serving it's main genre CRIME/Mystery with a good thrill good plot and appealing inspecting team, u would be guessing through out the whole thin [...]


    17. there's fairy tales, and then there's serial killer. Oh my, what a perfect kind of book for me xDand there's also the history about the fairy tales, and variations of theme criminal part's also engaging, not over done, but good. you can feel the creep on your neck while reading this booki like it.


    18. Scottish author - German setting. A grim(!) choice of reading material if you don't like your fairy tales with added serial killer; luckily I do, and am thoroughly enjoying this.First line - Fabel stroked her cheek gently with his gloved hand.



    19. Craig Russell'ın eserlerinin bir kere tadına vardınız mı bırakmak mümküm olmuyor, yine kurgusu ve karakterleri son derece sağlam bir başyapıt daha,kesinlikle kaçırmayın derim.


    20. Помните ли историите за Хензел и Гретел, Червената шапчица, Рапунцел, Спящата красавица? Помните ли „Смененото дете “ и „Умният Ханс“? Помните ли и останалите приказки от германския фолклор, събрани и записани от Братя Грим?Сега някой е решил да преразкаже приказките по н [...]


    21. ¡Una de las mejores lecturas del año!Siendo sincera, es uno de esos libros que me han sorprendido bastante. Este fue una de mis últimas adquisiciones (gracias a que reconocí el nombre del autor por otro libro de él que no me había animado a leer) y al estar relacionado con los cuentos de los hermanos Grimm, no resistí y lo empecé a leer.La historia situada en Alemania comienza con el caso de asesinato de una joven, la cual tiene su nombre escrito en un papel dejado por su asesino, el equ [...]


    22. I really like this series. I love the Hamburg setting and policeman Jan Fabel, a no-nonsense kind of guy who gets the job done and values his team as colleagues and human beings. His love of his city is infectious, like being with a good tour guide; the Fabel novels (I've now read two) are heavy on atmosphere and sense of place. Russell draws on Germany's rich cultural tradition and troubled history, making stories that are layered and complex. Yes, there's German terminology some readers might [...]


    23. This is part of a police series set in Hamburg by a Scottish author. There is an insane serial killer at loose whose murders are related to Grimm's Fairytales and finally Jan Fabel and his team catch him. This isn't a bad story if you can stomach the grotesque murders but for me none of the police characters came to life. On the plus side there were some clues to the identity of the murderer which I should have spotted but did not. On the minus side the author uses German terminology throughout [...]



    24. Este não era definitivamente o livro que deveria ter lido depois de Gabriel García MárquezApesar da insipidez do estilo de escrita de Russell, bom, mas banal, sem grande beleza, bem distante da assertividade narrativa de Márquez, esse não foi o maior problema de "O Irmão Grimm".A premissa é excelente: tudo começa com o cadáver de uma jovem abandonado na praia, seguido alguns dias depois de um casal de amantes degolados e com uma referência aos contos dos irmãos Grimm. Em breve novos c [...]


    25. When the murdered body of a young girl is found on a beach near-Hamburg, a paper stating her name is Paula Ehlers clutched in her hand, Kriminalhauptkommissar Jan Fabel and his team initially take this at face value. Paula has been missing for 3 years, and the dead girl looks about what you'd expect Paula to look 3 years later. But then it turns out the body isn't that of Paula. A few days later, two more people are found dead, with similar pieces of paper in their hands. They, the papers state, [...]


    26. Δε θα ξαναδιαβάσω παραμύθια. Ποτέ!!!! Με αυτό το βιβλίο δίνεται μια άλλη, τρομακτική διάσταση στα ασφαλή καταφύγια που μας δημιουργούσαν οι ψευδαισθήσεις των παραμυθιών όταν ήμαστε παιδιά. Είναι το δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς με ήρωα τον αστυνομικό Φάμπελ (το επίθετό του ταιρ [...]
