    One thought on “Saturday Requiem”

    1. Before I get into my review, I felt it necessary to give a little background on the series this book is a part of. Nicci French is the pseudonym of writing duo Nicci Gerrard and Sean French; they have penned several books separately but collaborated to bring forth the Frieda Klein series which focuses on said main character in her role as a psychotherapist. While Dark Saturdayis technically the sixth book in the series, it reads easily as a stand alone novel and I didn’t feel left out of any p [...]

    2. I enjoyed Monday through Thursday. Friday though, was a thorough miss for me, so I was somewhat leary about reading Saturday. To my relief this author and this series is back on track. Could not turn the pages fast enough.Love series that feature psychiatrists, and Frieda Klein is a very interesting character. She has often in the past worked with the police, this made her many enemies and almost cost her her life. She, however, cannot see what she perceives as an injustice, and turn away. So it [...]

    3. This is the first Nicci French I have read and it worked fine as a standalone. It is written by two authors. Psychotherapist Frieda Klein is an awkward personality, the reasons for which become clear in the novel. This is an intoxicating and gripping story. With concerns about an unsafe conviction, Frieda reluctantly agrees to meet Hannah Docherty and make an assessment. 13 years ago, an 18 year old Hannah was arrested for the murder of her family. She has been detained in a secure psychiatric h [...]

    4. Another excellent book from the Nicci French writing duo. I have had issues with the main character, Frieda Klein, in the course of this series but these have never stood in the way of my enjoyment of the books. Frieda has such a cold, detached personality that I am constantly amazed at how many devoted friends she attracts. They obviously see something in her that I do not. Nevertheless it is her detachment and stubborness which make her so good at her job, especially when she is assisting the [...]

    5. αχ φρίντα τι ήταν πάλι αυτό. τι φινάλε απίστευτο τα ξαναλέμε αναλυτικά όταν το ξεπεράσω (και αφού καταφέρω να κοιμηθώ λίγο!!)UPDATE:Έχω τόσο μεγάλη αδυναμία στη Φρίντα που ευτυχώς πρόλαβα στις 9 παρά πέντε την Πέμπτη το βράδυ να προλάβω ανοιχτό το public όπου είχα κάνει κράτηση (κό [...]

    6. H κριτική μου για το "Ρέκβιεμ του Σαββάτου" στο site 'Book City': Το ρέκβιεμ του ΣαββάτουΣχόλιο: ΑΡΓΕΙ ΝΑ ΕΡΘΕΙ Η ΚΥΡΙΑΚΗ;! :Ρ

    7. This series gets darker, and the tension in the master story thread builds. There is a slight depressing effect from reading this series in a compressed way, but not so as I would want not to read them. The characters and world are so three dimensional and convincing and the stories overall so expertly constructed. My only gripe, aside from the persistent theme of kids kids all the mistreated malfunctioning kids in jeopardy, are the two nemeses, who seem slightly cartoonishly evil, and thus less [...]

    8. The main storyline case is closed, but the series arc ends on a cliffhanger here - so there bloody better be a seventh book!

    9. When I was given the chance to read the latest book in the Freida Klein series by thriller writing duo Nicci French I jumped at it.In this latest book Frieda Klein reluctantly faces a case that tests her to her very limits.Thirteen years ago eighteen year old Hannah Docherty was arrested for the brutal murder of her family. It was an open and shut case and Hannah's been incarcerated in a secure hospital ever since. When psychotherapist Frieda Klein is asked to meet Hannah and give her assessment [...]

    10. Και να που πέρασαν οι ημέρες και φτάσαμε στο Σάββατο…Δεν κατάφερε να φτάσει τις προσδοκίες μου. Περίμενα κάτι πολύ περισσότερο από το συγγραφικό δίδυμο αλλά δεν θεωρώ πως κατάφεραν να μου το δώσουν. Ακολουθούν την ίδια συνταγή με τα προηγούμενα η οποία κατά την άποψή μου κ [...]

    11. What is important in a good crime story ,is the way the facts are presented, so that the reader (if careful and clever) can identify "who did it". It is also fundamental that people involved in the story are elements for the investigation .When everything ( including the motive and the culprit )is revealed in the last ten pages, through the inexplicable ingenious guessing of the heroin , the "product" is weak.

    12. Κλασική Φρίντα. Μπλέκει παντού και θέλει να τους σώσει όλους.Καλή η ιστορία. Ευτυχώς είχε λιγότερες περιγραφές και λιγότερο τσάι αυτό το βιβλίο. :)

    13. Το τελείωσα χθες αλλά ήθελα να αφήσω να περάσει μία μέρα πριν σχολιάσω για να δω αν εκ των υστέρων αλλάξω γνώμη. Για αρχή, να πω δυο πράγματα. Πρώτον, δεν μπορώ να είμαι αντικειμενική με αυτή τη σειρά βιβλίων, οπότε όλα τα παρακάτω είναι αυτά που βιώσα διαβάζοντας το. Δεύτερον, [...]

    14. So, I started this one, but I need to take a break. I requested it via Librarything having heard good things about Nicci French, but didn't realize a) this was part of series and b) Nicci French is a pseudonym for a writing team: picking up mid-series and writing teams both being pet peeves of mine. I'm sure this is probably a really good mystery, but in the beginning of the novel, I felt lost by and out of place trying to figure out what clearly happened in previous novels. I want to pick this [...]

    15. Ik leg het net weg en het einde is goed. Maar de laatste paar bladzijden zijn opeens gruwelijk, met een open einde. Laat deel 7 maar snel komen.Ik had de daadwerkelijke dader totaal niet verwacht. Weliswaar komt Frieda daar opeens zelf en onverwachts achter en wordt het prompt gebracht. Ik lees in reviews dat men dat gedeelte abrupt vond en geschreven lijkt alsof het boek opeens af moest om een reden. Zelf vind ik dat helemaal niet. Ook de spanning blijft voortdurend goed. Je denkt bij bijna ied [...]

    16. Excellent - but now I NEED the next book :) My View:Could this series can any better? I dont think so. This read was everything you might want in a psychological thriller – a taut narrative, great characterisations, tension, tension tension and the incredibly delicious feeling of dread the reader has as they turn each page, always expecting the worse, their heads filled with theories and consequences and empathy for the incarcerated anti-hero. Frieda Klein is at her investigative best! The clo [...]

    17. This is one series that I really look forward to reading. It started back in 2011 with the brilliant Blue Monday (I bought the hardback copy to take on holiday with me as I am always desperate to get my hands on a new Nicci French!) Blue Monday and Tuesday's Gone have been my favourites so far but as we head into "the weekend" Saturday Requiem has really got my pulse racing again!Psychotherapist Frieda Klein is asked to look into a case that may have an unsafe conviction. She goes to visit Hanna [...]

    18. It is always a treat to discover a new Nicci French. It all started long ago with Blue Monday. We have finally got to Saturday Requiem. Quality reads, every one! Excitement overload.As usual Frieda takes centre stage, with her gang of friends. Frieda is asked to look into the brutal slaying of a family. This is a murder of an entire family, by a teenage girl Hannah Docherty. Hannah has been locked up in a secure mental health unit, since she was eighteen. Hannah has deteriorated and is now in po [...]

    19. ΜΗΝ κάνετε το λάθος και ξεκινήσετε από αυτό το βιβλίο της σειράς. Υπάρχει μια παράγραφος που περιγράφει μέσα σε δέκα σειρές τι έχει συμβεί στα προηγούμενα πέντε βιβλία, οπότε μη!Από τα καλύτερα βιβλία της σειράς, κατά τη γνώμη μου, και δεν είναι να απορεί κανείς, αφού καθώς η [...]

    20. Αν και πέρασε καιρός από τότε που διάβασα τα προηγούμενα βιβλία, δε δυσκολεύτηκα να θυμηθώ ονόματα και καταστάσεις! Πολύ καλή συνέχεια της σειράς,με πολύ ωραία πλοκή και ενδιαφέροντες χαρακτήρες. Η Φρίντα όπως πάντα έχει κάτι το ιδιαίτερο σαν χαρακτήρας, αφού παρά το γεγον [...]

    21. Nicci French, een schrijversduo dat een hele reeks losstaande spannende boeken publiceerde die ik in één ruk heb verslonden, en dat vervolgens de uitdaging aanging om een reeks te schrijven rond de psychotherapeute Frieda Klein. "Als het zaterdag wordt" is het zesde boek in deze reeks, en als er één woord is waarmee ik de reeks zou willen omschrijven dan is het "onstandvastigheid". Of nog: "labiel". Waren maandag en dinsdag boeken "die ermee door konden", vond ik woensdag en vooral donderdag [...]

    22. I've read every book by this writing duo. An instant buy for me. I've liked the series featuring the psychotherapist Frieda Klein and I did like this story too though some aspects made me cringe a little. I won't go over the story - it is complicated - plus it spoils the gradual reveals if too much is given away.I love the writing, I love the tension, the - oh my God - moments - and there are a few. What I didn't like was the portrayal of life for Hannah in the prison hospital. Could it really b [...]

    23. Review by ireadnovels.wordpress The imaginary green light was set to go-go go read, read, read, my light didn't turn red to stop. Hannah was a troubled dysfunctional teenager, she had quarrelled with her family violently in public. Her stepfather, Aidan her mother and her younger brother. Rory. All three had been beaten to death with a claw hammer. When the police turned up at the terrible scene their duty was to make sense of it. Hannah was arrested for murdering her family. After nine years of [...]

    24. Frieda Klein is a London psychotherapist who has, in the past, assisted the police in a consultant role on some of their cases involving psychiatric disorders. In recent years, there have been troubles between Frieda and some higher-ups on the force. Nevertheless, some still consider her intuitive approach to be worth the risk.In Saturday Requiem, the sixth novel in the series, Frieda has been asked to assess a young woman, Hannah Docherty, who has been held in Chelsworth Hospital for the past t [...]

    25. Copy on its way! can't wait! One of the best writing duos of all time.***I don't think of myself as being a fan of series in general, because so many series that I started out loving became unreadable at some point. Maybe there will be a let down somewhere in the future, or maybe, as with Terry Pratchett, the books will just keep getting better. Fingers crossed.Frieda is in trouble with powers that be, because she's such a maverick, but she also has more powerful powers that be, which are vague, [...]

    26. Στο «Ρέκβιεμ του Σαββάτου» η Φρίντα Κλάιν αρχίζει να ξαναβρίσκει τους ρυθμούς της και να μπαίνει σε μια ρουτίνα, παρ’ όλ’ αυτά, ο μυστηριώδης Γουώλτερ Λέβιν, «ένας ελεύθερος επαγγελματίας-σύμβουλος» όπως αυτοχαρακτηρίζεται, που βοήθησε ουσιαστικά εκείνη και τον φίλο της [...]

    27. Psychotherapist Frieda Klein owes a favor to a cop so she agrees to consult on an old case. Frieda goes to a mental hospital to assess Hannah, a patient convicted of killing her entire family 13 years ago when she was only 18. Frieda discovers that Hannah is in terrible shape, having been beaten repeatedly. Hannah barely communicates and brings out all the compassion within Frieda. She tackles the cold case because she doesn't believe Hannah killed her family. As Frieda begins digging around, a [...]
