Product Description

Review

Snow White Must Die looks like being a must for mystery fans this summer, based on the great customer reviews it’s already getting across the Atlantic’ Emma Giacon, The Bookseller

‘The Nele Neuhaus thriller that’s captivated Germany (and been compared to Stieg Larsson) is finally getting published in the UK. The whodunit about two 17-year-old girls who go missing is filled with forensic detail and rattles along at a breakneck pace’ Grazia

‘Nele Neuhaus has made quite a splash in her native Germany with her series of books about Hofheim regional crime unit’s oddly aristo detective Oliver von Bodenstein and his sidekick DI Pia Kirchoff…The pair come with personal problems as standard but Neuhaus lets their home cirses bleed convincingly into their work and builds a thickly plotted tale to a satisfying conclusion’ Metro --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Nele Neuhaus is one of the most widely read German mystery writers. More than two million copies of her books are currently in print. She lives near Frankfurt, Germany. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book I have read by Nele Neuhaus, and I am not 100% convinced. You can get the outline of the story elsewhere, so I won't repeat that, but it is immensely complicated and detailed, and not always in a good way. I was reminded of the old American comedy Soap (Confused? You will be ...) Two barriers get in the way of a good read here - one is the long list of German names, which all sound a bit unfamiliar and samey to an English reader, and it is therefore difficult to remember who is who (and who is married to who, and who had an affair with who, you get it). (I had the same problem with the Swedish names in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.) The second is the clunky translation, which is over-wrought and descends into cliché far too often. I'm assuming it's the translation rather than the author, as she seems to get good reviews elsewhere. The plot is intriguing, if not always believable, although I have to say I had spotted the main plot twist about a third of the way through. The characters are a bit too obvious, too - the beautiful girl who turns out to be bad, the kooky girl who is the hero's saviour, the hard-bitten cop with marital problems - seen 'em all before. And yet there was a lot to keep me interested and I kept reading to the end and didn't want to put it down, and I will certainly be up for anything else by this author if it comes my way. Annoying and intriguing in equal measure, and a good holiday read. With reservations ...

This is am intriguing read and the basic plot keeps you guessing as a young guy returns home after serving a sentence for a crime he may or may not have committed. While I liked the twists and turns and most of the main characters were plausible with interesting side stories there was a feeling by the end that the truth couldn't have been kept hidden for quite so long.

Snow White must Die is the fourth in a popular thriller series written by German, Nele Neuhaus. In 2008 Tobias Sartorius is released from prison after serving a 10 year sentence for killing two 17 year old girls in September 1997. He returns to his parent's home only to find that they have divorced, the family business has failed and the locals are far from welcoming.

The Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein, the local police, turn up to speak to Tobias and his father when it turns out an accident they are investigating involved Tobias' mother. Pia requests the file from the murders and spots some inconsistencies; although told not to investigate further evidence indicates that the full story was not told at Tobias' trial.

This is a well told story although one you have to concentrate on; the cast is huge which combined with unfamiliar names can take a while to get used to. The characters are various, the big businessman, the kindly doctor, a few ambivalent parents, an autistic thirty year old who doesn't talk, the goth teenager who starts her own investigation to name but a few. There is also the personal life of Pia and Oliver which clearly has developed over time making me wonder why the decision was made to start four books into a series.

With plenty of intrigue the complex web of secrets is slowly unwound to reveal the truth and not without a few scary moments along the way this large book is perfect holiday reading.

Although a little slow to start, this book improves rapidly as the reader is immensed in the absorbing storyline. Tobias Sartorius is released from prison after serving 10 years for a double murder, convicted on circumstancial evidence. Soon after he returns to his parents' house, local resentment erupts, intending to make his life a living hell. The locals have closed ranks to hide away their many secrets, secrets that must remain hidden at any cost. Then another girl disappears, just like the two that are still missing, the truth still buried deep in the past. I was hooked on this book from start to finish, it is the first I have read from Nele Neuhaus. I do love the way she writes and the twists at every turn. In one word, brilliant.

I nearly gave up on this book because quite frankly the writing is a little dire in places. At times sentences were unclear, cliches have been used, there's a dramatic over-use of adverbs and the dialogue was occasionally implausible. I appreciate that some of this may be due to translation errors, but I still would not expect this is in a published novel.

However, despite all this, I plowed on and I'm pleased I did. The story is excellent with an unpredictable plot and there is a vast array of fleshed-out characters (one or two unnecessary). It was a good thriller and I enjoyed reading a book set in Germany, but I would only recommend it to people who are willing to be a little lenient and read over its imperfections.

This novel is set in the German village of Altenhain, just outside of Frankfurt. Tobi Sartorius returns me there following his release from prison where he was serving a sentence for the abduction and killing of two girls aged 17, one of whom was the `Snow White' of the title. The two girls were Stephanie, his girlfriend and Laura, his childhood sweetheart.

Tobi was 20 when he was convicted of their murders although without any bodies or any witnesses he has always protested his innocence. His return is unwelcome to the villagers and when his mother is attacked and seriously injured, Detective Inspector Pia Kirchoff and Sergeant Oliver von Bodenstein arrive to investigate. The more that Pia discovers the more doubts she begins to have about Tobi's conviction 11 years ago. Then a new girl appears, Amelie, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the former `Snow White' and befriends Tobi. When she suddenly disappears it seems that Tobi may be in for another prison spell unless Pia and her team can find the clues to the past in order to unravel the mysteries of present day Altenhain.

This is a pacey, good length novel and the main plot is fairly convincing. The characters are reasonably well drawn. However, there are way too many sub plots within subplots here which for me, by the end, bordered on the totally unbelievable. Unfortunately the fairly inane title of this book rather sets the scene for the finale. The author could probably have written several novels from this one with the amount of motives and jealousies flying about in its pages.

This was quite an interesting book to begin with, but by the end I was wishing it to be over and had ceased to care what else Altenhain had to reveal!
