Ratings have become inflated because people seem to imagine that only four and five star reviews are worth having and the fact is that three stars means worth reading, four means above average and five should be so unusual as to be for exceptional books only. So I'm saying this book is worth reading, but no more than that. There are interesting insights into life in Poland, both before it became independent from the USSR and afterwards. The central character is only just believable, his love life will not bear inspection and the other characters never leave the page. The plot is convoluted and depends on a very strange kind of psychotherapy, but what really knocks this book down is the denouement which is not very believable. So worth a read, especially if you're on a train or otherwise distracted--but no more than that, and in fact only just worth it.

Format: Paperback
This book is not only an interesting crime story but also gives a reader a true picture of Polish prosecutors' work. It also reminds about former communism times in Poland and tries to answer the intriguing question: what are those people who worked for the old system doing now? What is their position in the modern society? I recommend this book to all who love intelligent books with unexpected endings!

Translated from the Polish by Antonia Lloyd-Jones

Entanglement combines three of my favourite elements in a novel: a strong sense of place, a realistic criminal investigation, and psychotherapy. I liked it very much indeed, not least because of the faultless translation, including puns and other running black humour - an example:

"Is it long since you divorced?"
"No, not long, a year ago. And not so much divorced, as separated. We didn't go to court. But now perhaps we'll manage to botch it all up again".
"Sorry?"
"Sorry what?"
"You said "botch it all up again".
"Oh, of course, I meant patch it all up.".....

And later: "I'm dread sure it's because her father abused her as a child."..

Not an easy task for a translator to make these little jokes work without making it seem forced, but Antonia Lloyd-Jones does a wonderful job here.

The main plot concerns the investigation of an apparent murder that has taken place in a converted Warsaw church during a weekend retreat in which four clients and a psychotherapist undergo "constellation therapy", explained in fascinating style in the novel. The victim, Henryk Telak, was very depressed and for good reason, to the extent that his death by suicide would have been accepted by his doctor and, probably, the authorities. However, Telak clearly did not commit suicide, so Teodor Szacki, a State Prosecutor, gets the case. In Poland, the prosecutor directs the police investigation and prepares the case for court, so most of the book concerns Szacki's continually frustrated attempts to find out who killed Telak, and why.

'Entanglement' is a rich enjoyable crime novel,set
in 2005 Warsaw,and featuring the public prosecutor
Teodor Szacki.He is underpaid and over-burdened with
a heavy case load.He lives with his wife and daughter
but 'ennui' leads him to a mutual attraction for a
beautiful rookie crime reporter .

The plot concerns a death of one of the participants,
following an unusual group therapy session.Szacki,
assisted by the police investigates,delving into the
mechanics of group therapy,and also uncovering sinister
echoes from the past communist regime.

This is a well-paced,interesting,sensitively translated
novel ,which reveals an author of considerable promise.
