Als vor Jahren die ersten Flavia de Luce Krimis von Alan Bradley herausgekommen sind, haben viele Buchhandlungen sie ins Kinderbuchregal geschoben, weil die Heldin ein kleines Mädchen ist. Aber nein, das sind ausgewachsene, hintergründige und sehr ungewöhnliche Krimis! Persönlicher Tipp von mir.

It is June 1950 and a sleepy English village is about to be awakened by the discovery of a dead body in Colonel de Luce’s cucumber patch. The police are baffled, and when a dead snipe is deposited on the Colonel’s doorstep with a rare stamp impaled on its beak, they are baffled even more. Only the Colonel’s daughter, the precocious Flavia -when she’s not plotting elaborate revenges against her nasty older sisters in her basement chemical laboratory, that is – has the ingenuity to follow the clues that reveal the victim’s identity, and a conspiracy that reached back into the de Luce family’s murky past.
Band 1 der Serie. “I’m a little surprised that a man, Bradley, can capture so well how a girl thinks – and still make the story so readable for a grow up. Flavia is clever, she is brave, she is confused, she is mean, she is kind, she is sooooo funny, smart (maybe she’s unrealistically smart), she yearns for a hug and warmth from her family. I love imagining her flying over the countryside on her bicycle, Gladys.” (Leserin) (1.156 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 386 Seiten noch günstig?

Twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce is back at Buckshaw at last, but her homecoming is overshadowed by news of her father’s illness. Forbidden from visiting Colonel de Luce in hospital, Flavia busies herself in the village, but she soon makes a macabre discover: the corpse of a reclusive woodcarver hanging upside down on the back of a door, in a house empty but for a curiously uncurious cat.
Band 8 der Serie. “There is such a thing as willing suspension of disbelief brought on by sheer outlandish charm, and that’s what [Alan] Bradley and some delicious writing have tapped.” (London Free Press) (477 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?
