Dr Siri vs Koon Jimm - and the Winner iiiiissss....
am 19. April 2011
Hello Friends, first a notice to the hard boiled Dr Siri-Fans - look out, bite Your nails, have a bit of Asian patience... Dr Siri is coming back in the autumn.
And now, me - a hard boiled Dr Siri Fan myself - noticed with a bit of anxiety that our Most Famous Laotian Crime's-Writer has fallen into the Honeytrap of - rural Thailand!!!
But like every good Crime's-Writer, he is able to create for us an entirely new Universe, the World of the Juree Family.
Jimm Juree, thirty-something Crime Reporter is trasplanted by the (higher) force of her a-little-bit-out-of-the-road Mair (Mum), together with her brother Body-Builder with serious problems to connect to the other sex, a Grand-Pa ex Street-Police in semi-permanent mental absence, but full of resources....
And they all are forced from Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand to rural Southern Costal Thailand, to a very well existing place called Pak Nam (to be found on Google Maps!!!) to make what????
Mair has bought a "beautiful, calm Seaside Resort" on the Gulf of Siam, and they all will run it with the United Forces of the Family!
Yet one member is missing, staying in the North - the former elder brother, now after the "Great Snip" an "Auntie", ex Miss Thay, Asia, Frisco World of Transgender etc., but in Midlife Crisis because of ... read and learn!
Mix into t h a t mix the find of two skeletons in a VW-Mini-Bus, plus a murder case following right up behind, a Police Officer openly gay (an apparently non-existent phenomenon in the Thai Police ;-))) and several other murder cases coming up in more distant places of the Globe - and You have a plot that I had to read in one rush!
The dialogs are some times juvenile, gayish, even 70T-ish, when the plot requests it, but most of the time the writing stucks to the crime (He,He...)
O.K., I have to admit that the citations above every chapter made it much more difficult to continue the read, but there is very very much worse around - so what? It is a BOOK. Self-irony counts most ... ;)
For my opinion (which doesn't count soo muchat all) it is a great gain to read this last born in the family of our C.C., because it has all the wits and finds and lacks of our current Century or Millennium, or whatstheheck..in it.
Try it out - You will never regret it!
