Kurzbeschreibung

THE LATEST INSTALMENT IN THE HANNE WILHELMSEN SERIES: A snowbound mountain pass, a derailed train, a locked, shuttered and heavily guarded carriage, an apocalyptic storm, an ancient hotel, old betrayals, murder and state secrets.

1222 METRES ABOVE SEA LEVEL: train 601 from Oslo to Bergen careens off iced rails as the worst snowstorm in Norwegian history gathers force around it. With night falling and the temperature plummeting, its 269 passengers are forced to abandon their snowbound train and find shelter in a centuries-old mountain hotel. Before dawn breaks, one of them will be murdered.

Trapped by the killer within, trapped by the deadly storm outside, Hanne Wilhelmsen's unease is mounting. Why was the last train carriage sealed? Why is the top floor of the hotel locked down? And, of course, what if the killer strikes again?

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mittelmäßig spannend 21. Dezember 2010
Format:Taschenbuch
Der Beginn dieses Krimis ist fesselnd und originell: Ein Zug entgleist hoch in den Bergen, die Fahrgäste müssen in ein Hotel evakuiert werden, und anschließend gibt es eine Leiche. Auch wenn das zuerst wie eine skandinavische Neuafulage der klassischen "Locked Room"-Mysteries anmutet, ist es aber keine: Dafür sind zu viele Leute mit im Hotel - über 200 - und es kann also quasi jeder gewesen sein.

Nach dem packenden Einstieg senkt sich dann aber die Spannungskurve. Es treten eine ganze Menge Charaktere auf, die alle nicht besonders interessat oder glauwürdig sind, und die auch keine Clues zur Lösung des Verbrechens anbieten. Der Schnee fällt weiter und es wird viel diskutiert, und es gibt auch noch ein rätselhaftes Detail mit einem versiegelten Waggon aus dem Zug, dessen Passagiere unbekannt sind und offenbar in einer oberen Etage des Hotels abgeschirmt werden. So richtig spannend wird es deswegen aber nicht. Mitten drin ist die seit einem Revolverangriff querschnittsgelähmte Kommissarin, die als sagen wir mal diplomatisch, kantiger Charakter angelegt ist. Man könnte auch sagen: Anne Holt tut eigentlich alles, damit man ihre Heldin nicht mag. Die Lösung deutet sich erst ziemlich weit gegen Ende an und ist dann auch nicht total umwerfend.

Insgesamt ein Durchschnittskrimi, den man im eingeschneiten ICE sehr gut lesen kann, wenn gerade nichts anderes in der Nähe ist. Anne Holt hat weder die klare moralische Botschaft von Henning Mankell, noch das kalte Schaudern bei Mo Hayder, noch die herausragende weibliche Hauptfigur wie Stieg Larsson oder den zerkämpften Helden und Kommissar wie Ian Rankin.

4.0 von 5 Sternen And then there were none 2. November 2011
Von Susan Tunis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I need to read this Agatha Christie classic. I'm overdue, because this is the second novel I've read in the past few months that owes a significant debt to Ms. Christie's novel. And that's not a criticism. It's a brilliant structure, and it's used to good effect in Anne Holt's latest, 1222.

I'll start by noting the unusual title of the novel refers to the elevation (meters above sea level) of the novel's setting, and the name of a hotel at that elevation. In the opening pages there is a train crash high up in Norway's snowy mountains. Most of the 269 passengers and crew get off with fairly minor injuries, but they're trapped in the mountains by a severe winter storm. It'll be several days before organized help can arrive. Fortunately, a handful of locals form a rescue team and evacuate the passengers to the nearby hotel, which opens its doors wide to accommodate everyone.

The main character of the novel is a wheelchair-bound former police inspector named Hanne Wilhelmsen. I believe that Hanne has appeared in prior novels by Holt, but this is the first of the series to be published in the US. She's not a warm and fuzzy first-person narrator. In fact, she's rather prickly, but she's an interesting lady with a complex back-story, and she's a keen observer of human nature. In other words, she's exactly the sort of person you might want around when you're trapped in a remote location with a bunch of quirky strangers--and suddenly people start turning up dead.

Ms. Holt kept me guessing along with everyone else for the duration of this very enjoyable who-done-it. She embellishes the basic plot with several other side mysteries and red herrings. I warmed up to Hanne enough that I'd love to continue reading her series. Other characters were used more to fulfill their functions within the plot, but they were ably handled. 1222 isn't a major literary work, but I don't have a single complaint to voice. It was written to entertain, and on that count, I found it to be entirely successful.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Henning Mankell meets Agatha Christie 21. März 2011
Von Bob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is a modern re-working of the traditional 'country house' murder mystery genre. It is a generally enjoyable book with more than a nod to Agatha Christie (although has more of a similarity to her short story "The Erymanthian Boar" (in "The Labours of Hercules") than the explicitly-referenced "And Then There Were None". There is even a Poirot-esque denouement in the final chapters of the book.

Like Poirot, the main protagonist - ex-police officer Hanne Wilhelmsen - follows in the tradition of 'detective as outcast'. As a disabled lesbian, the character of Hanne could have been used as a 'poster child' for political correctness; instead, her sense of 'otherness' is caused mainly by her somewhat irascible personality; this is not an issues-driven book.

However, there are too many characters in the novel for the reader to actually care about most of them. I found myself having to look back to remind myself about whether a character had been mentioned before and in what context. A smaller cast would have helped the flow of the storyline and made it more streamlined. As it is, it is difficult to care about any of the deaths. Also, the ending appears to be influenced too much by Dan Brown - the novel would have been much improved had it finished a few pages earlier with the departure of the remaining guests.

Stylistically the book evokes Henning Mankell more than anyone else, although this may be due to the translation. Although the translation is generally good there are a few points that don't quite work. For example, a crucial misheard message doesn't quite work in English as the words wouldn't have been confused by a competent lip-reader (which Hanne appears to be). This is a minor point, but these occasional jarring moments did serve to remind me that I was, in fact, reading a translation.

Other than that, this book is well worth reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Murder in the snow 2. Februar 2011
Von Cloggie Downunder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Anne Holt's latest novel is "1222". The numbers refer to the height above sea level of the town where this modern version of the classic crime story takes place. The story starts with a derailment just as the train leaves Finesnut on its journey from Olso to Bergen. Plenty of injuries, but the train driver is the lone casualty. Amongst the 269 passengers who are evacuated to the nearby century-old mountain hotel are self-indulgent teens, German tourists, a church group, a sports team, the unseen occupants of a mysterious extra carriage, a group of doctors (conveniently for those injured) on their way to a conference and retired police inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen. Add some locals and hotel staff, a snowstorm to ensure everyone has to stay put, a murder (or two) and you have the definitive locked room mystery. Hanne is not Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot: there's no rubbing of hands together with glee at the challenge; she doesn't want to get involved. Hanne is paralysed, confined to a wheelchair, limited to the lobby level. Whilst relying on those around her for some pertinent information, her powers of observation and deduction are obviously acute and she has the case solved in time for the classic denouement when the cops finally arrive.
Anne Holt gives us a prickly heroine. She's cynical, perceptive, has a very dry sense of humour and an incisive wit. Hanne's inner monologue is a delight; her other characters and the dialogue are realistic and the action is non-stop. Holt touches on several topical issues and throws in a bit of philosophy. The Beaufort scale chapter headings are a fitting touch. "1222" gives the reader undiluted pleasure throughout: this novel is hard to put down. Marlaine Delargy's excellent translation certainly deserves a mention.

3.0 von 5 Sternen GOOD...NOT GREAT! 26. Oktober 2011
Von N. Blackburn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I must be honest and state that I am either frustrated by Anne Holt's writing or my reaction to it. Anne Holt's works should be books that I thoroughly enjoy as I rate most of her contemporaries in the area of Nordic Noir in the 4/5 star range, yet her books start off really promising and then they fizzle out to me. This should not be the case as she is really able to write without weighing her books down with romantic scenes that some of her female contemporaries can't seem to get around. Yet, her characters are unable to be "emotionally attached" to and fall flat. This really bothers me as a reader and I keep hoping that it will change for me, yet, I believe this is my second or third book of hers I have read and it doesn't.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Average thriller with a sensationalist spin 3. Januar 2011
Von Keris Nine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It doesn't take too long to establish that 1222 is a thriller of the drawing-room murder-mystery variety, where a group of people are holed-up together in a remote, isolated location, cut off from society with a killer among them. The similarity to Agatha Christie's classic And Then There Were None is so obvious it even occurs to Henne Wilhelmusen, a wheelchair-bound retired police officer who finds she cannot remain indifferent to the rapidly deteriorating situation amongst a group of 196 people trapped in a remote Norwegian mountain hotel in Finse, 1222 metres above sea-level, with a vicious winter storm raging outside.

Holt plays out the situation in a fairly conventional manner, which is to say, it has much in common with the Disaster Movie. Although it is a train accident on the Oslo-Bergen line that has left them all stranded in the hotel Finse 1222 - trapped in a community with no in-roads and only accessible by the now closed railway line - the only casualty of the accident has however been the driver. When other violent deaths start to occur, speculation - not to mention hysteria - runs wild, particularly over the existence of a mysterious extra carriage attached to the train with armed security, rumoured to contain a member of the Norwegian Royal Family, or perhaps some other very important or indeed dangerous person.

The Disaster Movie convention applies here to the cross-section of the public to be found on the train, which if it isn't statistically representative of Norwegian society in microcosm, at least contains the types of characters - businessmen, priests, doctors, trouble-making youths, celebrities, right-wing extremists and a small smattering of Muslims - where tensions are inevitably going to arise and divisions formed when they are all pushed together into a extreme, stressful situation. While Henne would appear to also be a token minority figure in more than one respect, she actually turns out is perhaps the most intriguing, unpredictable and non-stereotypical element of 1222, her background and attitudes remaining complex and untypical for a lead character.

Elsewhere however, while it certainly delivers on all the expected plot-points and thrills that come with this type of situation, the novel doesn't really have a lot to offer that is new or original and it can often be rather irritatingly predictable and overly stage-managed, as these types of thrillers tend to be. Much of the success of the book then will depend on how you react to an ending which attempts to give the subject a rather more modern topical spin. Not having been sufficiently established earlier, it does however feel somewhat sensationalist and patched-on to a main narrative that is, at best, a rather average Agatha Christie-style drawing-room murder mystery.
