Pressestimmen

Praise for The Woman Who Wouldn't Die

"Laughter is a subversive weapon when you live under a repressive regime. That's the take-away lesson from Colin Cotterill's gravely funny novels set in Indochina in the 1970s."
New York Times Book Review

"The latest Dr. Paiboun novel by Colin Cotterill, showcases both author and detective at the top of their games. It's an entertaining and captivating mystery underpinned by a fascinating exploration of the tangled history of Laos."
─The Christian Science Monitor

"Cotterill has never been better than in this ninth outing for acerbic Dr. Siri.... The action builds to an ingenious resolution."
Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"This quirky mystery is filled with unforgettably strange characters. It’s also filled with Cotterill’s dark humor, best seen in the characters’ wry dialogue. Readers who appreciate reluctant cops and detectives, like Tarquin Hall’s Indian sleuth, Vish Puri, or Stuart Kaminsky’s Russian Inspector Rostnikov, will love Cotterill’s cynical, haunted coroner."
Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"One of Cotterill’s best books yet. Fans are going to adore this one." 
─The Globe and Mail

"Crime fiction is a comprehensive introduction to different societies, and Cotterill's series are prominent on that bookshelf. It is not that he makes us laugh while working with the heartbreaking essentials of human drama. He fosters affection for and understanding of the Lao beyond the histories of Cold War geopolitics and the familiar touristy visions of southeast Asian hospitality. That is some achievement."
The Indian Times

“Irresistible, for new readers as well as established fans.”
Shelf Awareness

"After Cotterill's hiatus to launch another series set in Thailand (Grandpa, There's a Head on the Beach, 2012, etc.), the return of that glorious curmudgeon Dr. Siri for a ninth escapade is bliss."
Kirkus Reviews

“Colin Cotterill has the enviable ability to entertain the reader while never losing sight of the underlying tragedies upon which his narrative floats ... The conclusion of this book suggests that Siri has at least one further adventure in him. I for one certainly hope so.”
─Reviewing the Evidence

“A first rate mystery... and an education into the people and culture of Laos. The dialog is wry and often humorous, and the novel is recommended.”
─Midwest Book Review

“The best in an excellent series.... You'll go crazy for Dr. Siri and the rest of the superb cast.”
─Kittling Books (Blog)

"Siri and his gang are nonconformists, and we cheer their every insubordinate move.... [Cotterill] mixes the terrible, wonderful, and whimsical in perfect proportions.”
─Murder by the Book (Blog)


Praise for the Dr. Siri series
 
"Unpredicatable.... Tragically funny and magically sublime."
Entertainment Weekly
 
"A wonderfully fresh and exotic mystery."
The New York Times Book Review
 
"You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the '70s. The humor is wonderful, too." New York Post


From the Hardcover edition.

Mehr über den Autor

Nach seiner Lehrerausbildung machte sich Colin Cotterill (geb. 1952 in London) auf, die Welt zu bereisen - und aus irgendeinem Grund endete diese Reise einfach nicht. In Israel arbeitete er als Trainer, in Australien als Grundschullehrer, in Japan als eine Art Universitätsdozent. Außerdem engagierte er sich bei ECPAT, einer internationalen Organisation, die sich für Kinderschutz einsetzt. Gelandet ist der Autor einstweilen in Thailand, wo er mit seiner Familie lebt. Doch auch als Weltreisender hat Colin Cotterill nie aufgehört, seinen zwei größten Leidenschaften nachzugehen: dem Schreiben und dem Zeichnen. Heute ist er vor allem Schriftsteller; seine spannende Krimiserie um den Leichenbeschauer Dr. Siri Paiboun spielt in Laos.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dr Siri may be finally out of the Morgue... 1. Januar 2014
Von miki101.Michaela TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:MP3 CD
... but surely not out of the Job!

After the shutdown of the Morgue of the Mahosot Hospital in Vientiane/Laos Dr. Siri would be happy to enjoy his long aspired retirement together with his wife, Madame Daeng.
But fate has other intensions in mind for the two elderly lovers.
Siri's nemesis Judge Haeng has a proposal for him: A full-paid trip to Sanyaburi province which borders Thailand, to watch the boat races at Pak Lai.
Dr. Siri is obviously very skeptical - his last "state-financed" trip took him and his nearest into the middle of a massacre...
But this time he will have to act strictly as an observer. To observe a witch at work - The Used-To-Be Woman. So called, because after being shot by a burglar and burned on a pyre, she lives in her village safe and sound and now with a wireless to the otherworld...
And some minister's wife has problems with the troubled soul of her brother-in-law. So an expedition to Pak Lai, where his remains have been located via "Mystic Radio" by the ba dong aka the witch Madame Keui aka the Used-To-Be Woman... has to take place, and very "Hey Presto"!
The only person who could help Dr Siri with his own ghosts would be Auntie Bpoo, the transvestite fortune-teller. Only she has yet foreseen her own death and is planning her "Phasing-away"-Party - strictly by invitation only!
And then there is the misterious man "with a star on his forehead" asking strange questions about Dr. Siri's spouse Madame Daeng - and he speaks French! So Dr Siri is considering seriously to make the trip to Pak Lai to assist the wicked work of the witch and take his wife away from Vientiane...
His wife WHO obviously knows who this strange Frenchman is - from a long-ago past she didn't yet share with her husband.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Herrlich! 9. Februar 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ein weiterer gelungener Band der Reihe um Siri und seine Freunde, diesmal erfahren wir einiges aus dem Leben von Madame Daeng. Ein eingespieltes Team mit einer vertrakten Geschichte. Wie Inspector Phosy sagt, ist sie so bizarr, dass jeder Autor, der sie sich ausgedacht hätte, von vornherein zum Scheitern verurteil worden wäre, aber da es sich ja wirklich so zugetragen haben (!), muss man es fast glauben. Grandios. Und ein Schluss mit einem Knall! Ich hoffe auf noch viele weitere Bände!
