    A serial killer is stalking Paris, his announced plan being to murder a woman a day for seven days It soon becomes obvious that his campaign has as its target Chief of Police Nico Sirsky, who s in charge of the investigation, and that the cause of the wrath that the madman s so violently expressing lies somewhere in his childhood Can Nico catch him before the killer makes Nico s new girlfriend his final victim I came to this book having been recommended to it and expecting to like it far than in the event I did There were various reasons for this.What the killer does in torturing his victims is unusually and I think unnecessarily sadistic Yes, obviously, the villain in a piece like this needs to be pretty vile because otherwise there wouldn t be the thriller chiller effect we desire, but here I felt much of the sadism was gratuitous There was no reason, in terms of plot, for the mutilations to have taken place before rather than after the victims deaths There are limits to which I m prepared to accept human suffering as a basis for entertainment.This cavil may seem odd bearing in mind that one of my favorite n...

    Though I have been to France a number of times over the years and know quite a bit about French culture, I admit to not knowing almost anything about their judicial and police system come to think of it, I am kind of grateful for not having any first hand experience with the french police Even though this is my favorite genre and I am frequently drawn to works of the authors from non English speaking countries, again it dawned on me that I have not read much in terms of French crime murder mystery novels These are just some of the reasons I still feel the thrill of discovering this series by Fr d rique Molay Chief of Police Nico Sirsky, may very well be one of my favorite male protagonists, right along with Louise Penny s Inspector Gamache Though I had to wade my way through the complex or simply new to me police system and Molay did a fantastic job explaining it , intricate and intriguing story in combination with fascinating characters completely won me over Nico is a dedicated and brilliant policeman under a lot of stress and with a lot to prove, having become the Head of his unit at the age of 38 While juggling the never ending demands of his professional life and at the same trying to be there for his son, ex wif...

    At the end of my review for The Prone Gunman by Manchette, I mentioned that I have been choosing things French over all others since watching the TV series Spiral on Netflix streaming This latest read was Winner of France s prestigious Prix du Quai des Orf vres for best crime fiction in 2007 and has won slightly higher marks on Goodreads than other winners of that prize in recent years It is also one of the few that have been translated into English.In this novel we are treated to a crime that looks remarkably like the one featured on Spiral, the TV series The French are far graphic on TV and perhaps in literature than is usually acceptable in America, so one has overcome one s shock at the material before one can relax into the central mystery who is doing such vicious things to women and why On the TV series I d already learned the close relationship between prosecutors, investigating judges, and lawyers in the French system and how a victim must often face the perpetrator in the magistrate s office so I could seamlessly enjoy the way Molay described the characters for each piece of the ju...

    I enjoy mysteries and recently I have been trying to read mysteries from different parts of the world and have found it very interesting to see how these types of stories play out in different cultures Cotteril s Dr Siri Paiboun series set in 1970 s Laos is full of self deprecating humor and a distrust for authority figures Camilleri s Inspector Montalbano series set in Sicily is dry with an interesting disdain for any sort of procedural method in detection Crimes are solved, and the detectives are equally effective and skilled in their own distinct ways.It seems to me that the British and American crime solvers are similar Often times, going all the way back to Sherlock Holmes, they are either completely outside the criminal justice system amateurs, private detectives, or retired police officers or if they are actually police officers, they are either damaged in some way or have their own code and procedures that they follow We like the free agent, the rebel, the detective who puts his moral code above the letter of the law At least we do in novels because that type of behavior in a police officer would most likely be a nightmare in real life Harry Callahan is fine on the movie screen, but we don t want to see him walking up to our vehicle when we blew that red light trying to get to work on time.Molay s Nico Sirsky series is set in Paris and they love their rules They have tremendous respect for their bosses Everyone is supremely skilled and devoted to their jobs Even...

    I received The 7th Woman from Netgalley where I am really due to review this quite some time ago Boy do I regret waiting But, when my reading gets extremely fickle I back off of reviewing because I tend to start and stop books that I normally would love when I am in this kind of reading slump and I have been in one for over 6 months I am glad I finally got into this book One of the interesting things is I expected it to be like armchair travel but I realize now that if the author lives in France then they would write about it as something they see everyday as opposed to making it attractive to those who want to picture everything There was good description of where things occurred but I didn t get the feeling of an armchair traveler I had of the feeling of this is where we live so things occur on this street or that street But, it was great to have that feeling of living in Paris and not sightseeing there The 7th Woman was an intense mystery thriller which I am happy to say I guessed correctly, not because it was easy but mainly because the bad guy just rubbed me the wrong way so I blamed it on that person One thing that was harder for me to grasp was the emotional struggle that Nico was having between getting his behind back to finding the killer instead of worrying about a lady...

    Fr d rique Molay s The 7th Woman introduces us to Nico Sirsky, chief of Paris s elite Criminal Brigade, as he battles wits with a serial killer who has vowed to kill a woman each day for seven days hence the title While Molay s story was entertaining, to call her the French Michael Connelly is overgenerous Some of her writing was awkward does anyone refer to women as chicks any , which may be attributable to the translation from French to English More importantly, her red herrings were simply too obvious her misdirection as to the identity of the fifth victim was entirely unsuccessful, and I identified both the killer and the seventh woman before the halfway mark.Some significant questions were never resolved for example, view spoiler we never learned how the killer knew that the first four victims were a month pregnant, nor did Molay explain why the killer abandoned that part of his victimology with the last three women It s difficult to be...
