    One thought on “The Judge and His Hangman”

    1. "The difference between humans and wild animals is that humans pray before they commit murder."-Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921-1990), Swiss novelist and dramatistIn his short review of this extraordinary novel, my good friend Mark Hebwood from London wrote: "Loved it! This is a bit like taking the essence of detective novels and distilling it down to concentrate. Great plot, excellent twists, and great finale. I immediately bought all other detective novels he wrote."Thanks, Mark! Likewise, all Fri [...]

    2. بی‌نهایت خسته کننده، عاری از هرگونه پیچیدگی و ظرافت و جاذبه.***********بعد از خوندن سوءظن پشیمون شدم که به این کتاب ۲ دادم،شما ۲.۵ درنظر بگیرید یا حتی ۳ :D

    3. Se il fine giustifica i mezziUna intricata "partita a scacchi" iniziata molti anni prima nella lontana e misteriosa Istanbul.Ora, dopo oltre vent'anni, siamo alla resa dei conti e solo lo scenario è cambiato: dalla capitale d'Oriente a Berna, la piovosa e brumosa capitale Svizzera.A fronteggiarsi in questa eterna lotta tra il bene e il male, la ricerca della Verità e il desiderio di Giustizia da una parte, l'arroganza e la sete di potere dall'altra: non sempre però gli schieramenti saranno co [...]

    4. Due dialoghi che reggono l'intero romanzo, forse era meglio a racconto?2,5fino a metà romanzo: 1,5finale: 4Devo essere sincero. Avrei abbandonato il libro se non facesse parte di una sfida di lettura. Ero certo che i voti alti dovessero dipendere da un valore oggettivo, questo non toglie che restassi disorientato da ciò che leggevo. Questo romanzo breve non mi lascia niente per oltre 60 pagine.La prima svolta avviene durante l'incontro tra il commissario B. e quella che scopro essere la sua Ne [...]

    5. This is a perfect short novel. Dürrenmatt wrote The Judge and his Executioner around the same time as the play The Marriage of Mr. Mississippi. Both stories revolve around the theme of two antagonists who are reunited by circumstances that occurred decades apart.In 1948 a colleague of Swiss police inspector Bärlach is found murdered, shot and hunched over the steering wheel of his car on a rural highway in the Alps. As he takes up the case, Bärlach is near the end of his career and has a year [...]

    6. تنها حس خوبم موقع خوندن کتاب این بود که برلاخ رو شبیه " هیچکاک" تصور میکردم که اینم مربوط میشه به خلاقیت خودم در تصویر سازی موقع خوندن داستان ، وگرنه کتاب نکته خاصی نداشت :)

    7. La prova d'esordio di Friedrich Durrenmatt è un testo emblematico e misterioso che, inserendosi in modo originale e inedito nella tradizione del giallo-noir, attirò alla sua pubblicazione l'attenzione di un ammirato George Simenon; Adelphi ne ripropone ora ai lettori una nuova traduzione. All'origine del racconto c'è una scommessa demoniaca tra l'investigatore e il malvagio, che diviene la sfida di una vita intera, un inseguimento fino alle soglie della fine della vita e dell'oblio: dimostrar [...]

    8. Nel Deuteronomio così si legge:Noterai questo libro sugli scaffali della Feltrinelli, e il titolo ti ricorderà qualcosa, forse qualcuno te ne avrà parlato bene, forse ne avrai letto una recensione entusiasta. Arriverai alla cassa, deciso a comprarlo, consapevole del fatto che nella scelta è stato determinante –non oserai negarlo spero- il numero delle pagine (109 paginette, adesso saprai cosa fare alla fermata dell’autobus). Lo porterai a casa e inizierai a leggerlo di buona lena dopo ce [...]

    9. معمولی و روتین و قابل پیش بینیالبته شخصیت گاستمان رو خیلی دوست داشتم، به قول نویسنده نمادی از پوچ گرایی، کسی که بدون هیچ هدفی دست به خوبی با بدی میزنه

    10. Many years ago in Istanbul, two men made a wager--one, that criminals always pay; the other, that he could get away with anything. Forty years later, in Switzerland, a young police officer is murdered, and Inspector Berlach finds he has one last chance to catch Gastmann, the one that got away. Many good books are just the right length, but there are some out there that deserve to be longer. This is both. As a brief, well-plotted mystery novella detailing the end of one man's forty-year pursuit o [...]

    11. Meine MeinungAufgrund der Tatsache, dass seine Romane sich als Lektüre im Deutschunterricht großer Beliebtheit erfreuen, haben leider viele Leser negative Assoziationen mit dem Namen „Friedrich Dürrenmatt“. Ich habe in der Schule nie eines seiner Werke gelesen – vielleicht ist das einer der Gründe, warum mir „Der Richter und sein Henker“ gut gefallen hat.Meiner Meinung nach haben der Roman und sein Autor völlig zu Recht Weltliteratur-Schullektüren-Status, was hier ausnahmsweise m [...]

    12. پیرمرد تقریبا نفس نمی کشید. ایستاده بود و اسلحه در دست می فشرد. عرق سردی را که از پس گردنش راه افتاده بود حس نمی کرد. به هیچ چیز فکر نمی کرد، نه به گاستمان، نه به لوتس، و نه حتی به بیماری اش، که لحظه به لحظه از درون می خوردش و می خواست زندگی اش را نابود کند، و حالا داشت از آن دفاع می [...]

    14. Ich mag den Humor von Dürrenmatt unheimlich gerne und ich habe mich so gefreut wieder ein Buch von ihm zu lesen und was kann ich sagen? Er hat mich absolut nicht enntäuscht und sein Kriminalroman hat mich auch absolut überzeugt

    15. Die schwierige Frage ist jedes Mal: Welches Buch ist das nächste? Nach McEwan, Simon Rich und Donna Tartt sollte es wieder etwas Klassisches, Kontinentaleuropäisches sein. In einem Stapel mitgenommener Bücher aus einer Kiste von Leuten, die sie loswerden wollten, lag nun "Der Richter und sein Henker", den ich mit fünfzehn schon mal gelesen hatte, von dem ich nur noch wusste, dass das Buch damals einen roten Leineneinband hatte. Diesmal eine DDR-Reclam-Ausgabe. Auch beim Lesen kommt keine Eri [...]

    17. From Wiki:The novel was once more made into a film in 1975, titled End of the Game, directed by Maximilian Schell, with screenplay by Dürrenmatt and Schell.[5] Jon Voight took lead billing as Walter Tschanz, with Martin Ritt as Hans Bärlach and Robert Shaw as Richard Gastmann. Jacqueline Bisset and Friedrich Dürrenmatt also appeared in the film, and Donald Sutherland played the role of the corpse of Ulrich Schmied. German silent film actress Lil Dagover made her last screen appearance before [...]

But not fast enough for his arch-enemyWhen a member of the Bern police force is shot dead on a Swiss country road, the enigmatic Inspector Barlach and his colleague Tschanz are intent on tracking down the killer. But the ailing Inspector doesn't have time to lose.

    19. Primo incontro con questo autore, subito mi ha ricordato, per atmosfere e per personaggi, Il cavaliere e la morte di Sciascia, anche qui, come là, un commissario sensibile, poco rude, assai logico che nel percorso di risoluzione di un delitto si trova ad interrogarsi sull’imminenza della propria morte.
Il commissario (quello di Durrenmatt) ha di fronte a sé il caso della sua vita in cui è coinvolto un antico nemico-amico, giungendo a compimento una scommessa fatta 40 prima, la risoluzione [...]

    20. Prima esperienza col vecchio Dürrenmatt.Più che la trama o lo sviluppo del giallo in senso stretto (di cui mi interessava relativamente) qui è rilevante la questione morale sulla giustizia.Un commissario malconcio e sotterraneo come Bärlach, affiancato dal giovane e rampante Tschanz, deve far luce sull’assassinio del collega Schmied.I punti forti sono l’atmosfera mitteleuropea, le descrizioni dei paesaggi brevi e accecanti, la cupezza e il cinismo. Scarno, profondo e (quasi) perfetto nel [...]

    21. The story glitters with a cutting intelligence bared as the story unfolds. A policeman has been murdered and solving the crime throws up enough questions, twists, moral conundrums, social observations to have made this a 1000 page book. All the more remarkable that in Durrenmatts masterful hands it is covered in 90 or so pages. Also written in the sort of simple German that makes it extremely easy for those whom German is a second language to understand.

    22. گفتنی‌ها را محمود حسینی‌زاد در مقدّمه‌اش پاک گفته‌است. تنها این می‌ماند که نمی‌شود به شباهت بی‌اندازۀ برلاخ و پوآرو در آخرین پرونده‌اش _کتاب «پرده» آگاتا کریستی_ بی توجّه بود. هر دو کارآگاه به سختی بیمارند؛ در عین حال بی‌نهایت حقّه‌بازند؛ به شدّت می‌خواهند پرونده‌شان [...]

    23. Giallo anomalo, come sempre nello stile di Dürrenmatt. Da un lato tensioni thriller che forniscono qualche brivido, dettagli inquietanti, colpi di scena; dall’altro la riflessione sul concetto di giustizia e sulla ricerca della verità. Breve e leggibile, ma non superficiale.

    24. Cos'è in realtà la giustizia? Se si persegue un fine, tutti i mezzi sono giusti? Oppure, se si è stati vittime di ingiustizie si è autorizzati a vendicarsi? In realtà questo breve romanzo è un piccolo capolavoro perchè ci permette di riflettere su un tema profondo, spesso vittima di sterili semplificazioni. Il protagonista intesse una delicata trama perché sia il bene, in quanto tale, a prevalere al di là dei fatti contingenti. Ci riuscirà? Il finale è sorprendente, vi consiglio di le [...]

    26. Due uomini, due poliziotti, due ossessioni. Uno, il vecchio ispettore Barlach, ha trascorso la sua esistenza nella ossessione di perseguire un uomo, tessendo, con lucida genialità e astuzia raffinata, la tela intorno a lui per assicurare alla “sua” giustizia il colpevole di un reato commesso davanti ai suoi occhi e rimasto impunito. L’altro, il giovane agente Tschanz, è ossessionato dall’ambizione sfrenata e dall’invidia verso un suo superiore. Ognuno dei due persegue la propria osse [...]

    27. این رمان، با شخصیت پردازی خیره کننده گورلاخ و داستان جذابش، می توانست ستاره های بیشتری بگیرد. با این همه، پایان بندی آن در حد انتظار نبود؛ یاد پایان بندی داستان های سریال پوآرو افتادم که کارآگاه لازم می دانست همه رازها و شیوه رازگشایی را بازگو کند.محمود حسینی زاد توانسته بود ک [...]

    28. Terrifically entertaining. A good first novel for those studying German who are ready to tackle something longer. I have a copy published in the 50's where the publisher compared Dürrenmatt's style to G.K. Chesterton and Graham Greene, which at first seemed strange (since these three authors seem very dissimilar to me) but on reflection they all employ a subtle, wry humor that makes their sentences and meanings land in unexpected ways.
