It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse. And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder. He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment. They say that in the end all sins are forgiven. But not quite all...

  1. Pratchett levererar.
    Olivaw, 6 augusti 2012

    Jösses! Bok 39 om Discworld och kvaliteten sjunker inte nämvärt. Pratchett är bara i det hänseendet en otrolig författare och att denna bok inte tillhör den allra högsta höjden av hans Discworld böcker stör mig ytterst lite.

    Här återser vi alltså den rakryggade Sam Vimes när han ger sig ut på en semester, påkallad av hans fru Sybil. Men en copper är alltid en copper och snart nog blir han till sin stora glädje inblandad i en brottsutredning.

    Pratchett känns lite Woodhouse nä... Läs hela recensionen

  2. Brotten är nästan lagliga på landsbyggden...
    Enigma (Helsingborg), 25 juni 2012

    Sir Samuel Vimes har fullt upp. Nattliga jakter på flodbåtar mitt under en storm, ett demoniskt väsen som tydligen fattat tycke för honom, flertalet slagsmål, åtskilliga gobliner, hemska människor, massor av bajs, galna mördare, smuggling, tobak, troll-narkotika och en av världens farligaste betjänter.

    ...Och det här ska föreställa en avkopplande familjesemester för Vimes!

    Boken är fylld med Pratchetts typiska humor och en rejäl dos spänning. Som vanligt varvar författaren m... Läs hela recensionen

"[Discworld is] Warm, silly, compulsively readable, fantastically inventive, surprisingly serious exploration in story form of just about any aspect of our world... Where other writers are delighted if they come up with just a handful of comic figures with self-sustaining life in them - Don Quixote and Sancho, the three men in the boat, Pooh and Piglet and Eeyore - Pratchettt breeds them by the score...There's never been anything quite like it" -- Francis Spufford Evening Standard "Pratchett is a master storyteller. He is endlessly inventive... a master of complex jokes, good bad jokes, good dreadful jokes and a kind of insidious wisdom about human nature... I read his books at a gallop and then reread them every time I am ill or exhausted" -- A. S. Byatt Guardian "To keep it fresh into the 39th volume of a series deserves a knighthood... Snuff is entertaining, with all Pratchett's genius on display. He still makes you care about his creations and, amid all the funnies, he can turn on the pathos" Sunday Express "[Pratchett] is now so good at skewering the banalities and injustices of our world through his fantasy creation balanced on the back of a giant turtle that he could probably do it in his sleep... As effortlessly, generously funny as only Pratchett can be, Snuff doesn't stint on laying bare the darker side of life either. A worthy addition to the Discworld canon" Sunday Times "Is there any sign of a falling-off in Sir Terry's extraordinary abilities? No. Not one. This is another brilliant, bravura command performance of comic fantasy. Terry Pratchett with Alzheimer's is still up there with PG Wodehouse. Amazing. Wonderful. Fantastic" -- Harry Ritchie Daily Mail
