    1. I CONTI DEL PASSATOUn po’ tenue e leggero per il mio gusto, più televisivo che cinematografico, gradevole ma a tratti prolisso – come succedeva nella serialità d’antan c’è più cura per l’atmosfera e l’intreccio che per la caratterizzazione dei personaggi, che viene data per acquisita, almeno per quelli fissi.Il finale è un punto a favore, non c’è il solito bisogno di concludere con 2+2=4.Il passato nazista non è completamente sepolto – la Germania Est e la sua gente dopo 2 [...]

    2. Selb zum Dritten - und glücklicherweise auch Letzten. Denn wie schon bei den vorangegangenen Romanen, konnte ich auch "Selbs Mord" nicht wirklich viel abgewinnen. Bernhard Schlink schreibt in gutem und ansprechendem Deutsch und macht es auch unterhaltsam, dieses Buch ohne grosse Anstrengungen zu lesen. Allerdings wirkt dadurch vieles etwas seicht und die Geschichte um dunkle Machenschaften in einer Bank nimmt sich oft selber etwas die Spannung.Auch die Eigenheiten des Privatdetektivs Selbs selb [...]

    3. Bernhard Schlink is the author of a series of award-winning crime novels starring Gerhard Self, a senior citizen private detective with a fondness for sweet cigarettes and liqueurs. In this latest adventure, Self is lured out of retirement by Welker, the mysterious head of a longstanding private bank, who has a seemingly simple request for the aging investigator: find out the identity of a former secret partner in the family business. But as Self investigates, and comes face to face with his own [...]

    4. Much like in Self's Punishment Self is again hired by someone with either a secret or an ulterior motive. This time instead of an acquaintance hiring him it's a serendipitous meeting in the snow which leads to an archival job that masks another dicovery into the former Communist East Germany and ultimately leads back to the Nazi past. Schlink does a superb job of capturing a man pondering his life, wondering if he has made a difference, done anything, knowing which battles to fight, and trying t [...]

    5. Üçlemenin son cildinde, ihtiyar dostumuz Gerhard Selb, eski Almanya ve aslında kendisiyle günah çıkarmaya devam ederken, bize veda ediyor. Klasik polisiyelere göre daha durağan olsa da seriyi sevenler için güzel bir son parça, aynı zamanda üzücü bir veda.

    7. Die Beschreibung auf dem Cover ließ mich auf einen Krimi hoffen. Leider hat sich der Autor nicht entscheiden können, was er nun schreibt. Jedes Mal, wenn sich ein Handlungsfaden entwickelt hat, wurde der brutal durch ein neue Kapitel abgewürgt. Also wechselte die Kriminalgeschichte mit Rückblicken auf eigene Versäumnisse und das Leben überhaupt.Das Gegreine über das Alter hat mich auch nur genervt. Ich war versucht dem Auto oder seiner Figur zu sagen, daß er die Chance verpaßt hat, jung [...]

    8. Gerhard Self is an aging private investigator with a nose for trouble and a bad heart. This book is a murder mystery; someone is murdered and the Herr Self discovers the identity of the killer, but most of the investigation is actually historical research about banking and in the nasty paper nest of an archive that retired teacher Adolph Shuler calls home. "The fact that I have loved many women doesn't mean I don't have any morals.""If you are always on the level, you don't need a soul. We have [...]

    9. Este es mi primer libro sobre el ex-fiscal y ahora detective Selb, así como también de este notable autor alemán, que se granjeó buena crítica con 'El lector'.Se suele colocar a Schlink entre los autores del resurgimiento de la literatura de detectives, de lo neo-policiaco y es más que merecida esta etiqueta al lado de autores como Tim Krabbe o Giorgio Todde.

    10. "It's a shame one can't chose one's last case. A high point, a finale, one that rounds off with a flourish everything one has achieved. Instead, the last case is as accidental as all the others. That's how it goes: you do this, you do that, and before you know it, that was your life."

    11. I did not really enjoy this and probably will not get any more books by this author from the library. It was well-written and Gerhard was a believable character but the ending was more ambiguous than I liked.

    12. I liked it more towards the end than in the beginning. I might check out the earlier installations for the same character, they might be better. (or it might be more flowing in german, which I think is the original language.)

    13. Almanya'nın ve Selbs'in geçmişine yapılan göndermeler kitabın en güzel yanı. Yani flashbacklerine hayran kaldım ama "şimdiki zaman" entrikaları zayıf ve ilginçlikten uzak.

    14. Found this quite hard going for the first half, but enjoyed the main character.

    17. The Self trilogy ends, sadly, with a bit of a whimper.

    19. Erst zum Ende des Buches findet Schlink wieder zur Form des ersten Buches zurück. Davor zieht es sich etwas und ist im Vergleich zu Selbs Justiz humorlos.

    20. Apparently part of a series, another volume of which I previously read. Totally jumped the shark with this one.

    21. nice enough read but the author's detective novels are incomparable in quality with his other work

    22. Schlink is the author of "THe Reader". This mystery is not nearly as compelling. The translation from German is awkward. The punctuation freaks me out.
