    This is one of the better mystery thrillers I have read recently and certainly a good choice by me to pick this one up as myFirst Reads selection this month It features an intriguing main character and the story kept me on my toes as it was one thing after another Action packed for sure.Detective Nik Pohl does his own thing which doesn t always go over well with his colleagues and bosses on the police force And of course he has done some not so good things which make him a target for This is one of the better mystery thrillers I have read recently and certainly a good choice by me to pick this one up as myFirst Reads selection this month It features an intriguing main character and the story kept me on my toes as it was one thing after another Action packed for sure.Detective Nik Pohl does his own thing which doesn t always go over well with his colleagues and bosses on the police force And of course he has done some not so good things which make him a target for blackmail A man named Jon knows Nik s weak spots and uses it against him so Nik will look into the cold case of a missing woman named Viola As Nik investigates what happened to Viola it appears there might be a link between her case and the death of another young woman Thehe digs for the truth, theit becomes obvious someone powerful wants Nik off the case He better watch his back as his life is now at stake.I love that Nik was a flawed character instead of a completely straight laced detective That s what made him interesting as he was a bit of a wildcard in that I never completely knew what lines he would be willing to cross I m excited that this is the first book in a series because I think there is a lotfor the author to explore in regards to Nik.It seems like such a cliche to say but there were things in this story I didn t see coming which made it a fun read I read so many books in this genre that it s not very often I m caught off guard at a plot twist Very early on in the story I was hooked as the author certainly doesn t wait until the ending to drop some surprises.My only small criticism is there was one thing in regards to the story that had me side eyeing it a bit By no means did it ruin the book but it wasof a case of questioning whether something was likely to happen in that manner Maybe for some readers there are other parts of the story that don t seem super realistic, but for me it was really only one tiny aspect of the plot I think the author really set the stage for a promising new series Will definitely have to check out future books as this was definitely an enjoyable read

    Nik Pohl is a detective who has reached such a high level of job burnout that he carries a cyanide capsule to use when he feels it is time to end his life This doesn t stop him from descending into the bowels of the city, doing his best to make things right, and using his own violent methods whenever possible While he originally didn t wish to become involved in the murder of one woman and the disappearance of another, Nik soon finds himself tangled in an off the books investigation Unfortu Nik Pohl is a detective who has reached such a high level of job burnout that he carries a cyanide capsule to use when he feels it is time to end his life This doesn t stop him from descending into the bowels of the city, doing his best to make things right, and using his own violent methods whenever possible While he originally didn t wish to become involved in the murder of one woman and the disappearance of another, Nik soon finds himself tangled in an off the books investigation Unfortunately, there are people who don t want the truth uncovered, and Nik finds he must put his life on the line to solve the case.Author Alexander Hartung has added a touch of noir to his mystery story, adding a darkness that helps the overall mood The tale proceeds logically and carries a sense of realism Translations from another language can sometimes be an issue, though Fiona Beaton s work made it appear as if the story had originally been written in English.Overall, a good effort While most of the characters are one dimensional, the story teller is Nik, and we are given a running commentary of everything through his eyes The hardboiled detective fits this novel well, and it was an enjoyable read Four stars

    A gritty police procedural thriller I picked as my OctoberFirst Reads selection Originally published in German, it has now been translated to English by Fiona Beaton.Thoughts Over the last several years I ve noticed howanddetective stories involve protagonists that have a dark side they are fighting against They are jaded, wounded, and restless Perhaps it is from a childhood trauma or incident or perhaps it is from too many years on the job that have made them a bit weathe A gritty police procedural thriller I picked as my OctoberFirst Reads selection Originally published in German, it has now been translated to English by Fiona Beaton.Thoughts Over the last several years I ve noticed howanddetective stories involve protagonists that have a dark side they are fighting against They are jaded, wounded, and restless Perhaps it is from a childhood trauma or incident or perhaps it is from too many years on the job that have made them a bit weathered in how they think, react, and deal or don t deal with emotional pain In Broken Glass, Nik Pohl is no exception He is literally on his last chance as a Munich CID detective He s got an unkempt appearance that almost screams how little he cares about life at the moment and how little control he feels he has In fact, he carries a cyanide pill with him for that moment when it all becomes a bit too much for him But even though he is completely burned out and probably in need of a very long vacation the one thing he does have truly going for him is his tenaciousness in investigating mysteries and crimes So when Nik is blackmailed into investigating the disappearance of Viola Rohe, he does the only thing he knows how to do he digs in.I found the story to be a good first start to a new series Nik clearly has issues, but as I read the book I sensed how the author was very slowly trying to shape and navigate Nik into the world of the living to where he cares about life again There is quite a bit of growth and potential in Nik and in the series I m still working through my own thoughts on the supporting characters I m not sure how plausible I found some of them and their circumstances, but I didn t dislike them My favorite support character has to be Balthasar von den Auenfelden He s what I would call a scene stealer in the book I found him half crazy, half funny, and enjoyed every scenewhen he was in the picture.Overall, if you re like me and trying to decide which book to select in theFirst Reads, I d give this one a chance It does have some gritty dark moments so if you re looking for a light and fluffy mystery thriller it s probably not your best option However, I also have read other books that are far grittier and darker than this one Books that were too dark for me to read and I had to put down This is not that type of book, so I guess you can say it is on the lighter side of dark.Rating 4 stars

    I didn t realize this was a translation when I bought it I thought this book was mundane and had no depth, and I hope that can be attributed to not reading it in its original language The storyline was interesting, but it read like a low budget film The characters were one dimensional and fitted perfectly into stereotypical molds I didn t feel any emotional connection to the main character He clearly has a past, and I would like to have knownabout it to understand him better I was di I didn t realize this was a translation when I bought it I thought this book was mundane and had no depth, and I hope that can be attributed to not reading it in its original language The storyline was interesting, but it read like a low budget film The characters were one dimensional and fitted perfectly into stereotypical molds I didn t feel any emotional connection to the main character He clearly has a past, and I would like to have knownabout it to understand him better I was disappointed with this book from chapter one, and it was a struggle to finish it

    This book wastes no time on drawn out openings The prologue had all the intrigue needed to get my interest and then I just couldn t read the rest quickly enough The beginning reminded me of a film noir detective movie with it s dark and ominous feel, added to by the setting and Pohl s no nonsense and independent approach to police work Although you could describe him as a little obnoxious, I liked his character He s troubled and seemed disillusioned with life but he s an honest and likable r This book wastes no time on drawn out openings The prologue had all the intrigue needed to get my interest and then I just couldn t read the rest quickly enough The beginning reminded me of a film noir detective movie with it s dark and ominous feel, added to by the setting and Pohl s no nonsense and independent approach to police work Although you could describe him as a little obnoxious, I liked his character He s troubled and seemed disillusioned with life but he s an honest and likable rogue By the middle of the book the mood lightened somewhat but remained just as hard hitting and gritty Quite a fewcharacters and suspects started appearing and I was left a little bewildered with what the connections were, they seemed tenuous but perhaps I missed something It didn t spoil the enjoyment and book 2 is a must

    DNF This is terrible Nik Pohl is an awful character a cliched rogue cop, but also antisocial and grubby, to the point that he is quite repulsive He never seems to actually do any of his real job, and hates people for no reason Some of his actions are both shocking and unbelievable Unlike other fictional jaded cops or ex cops, he does not act like an ex investigator certainly not one who was supposedly good in the past There is a lotgood crime out there than this.
