📚#16 Blood Safari (Deon Meyer)
I en af alle vores bogkasser gemte sig Blood Safari af den sydafrikanske forfatter Deon Meyer; bogen har jeg fået af min onkel og faster (som bor i Sydafrika), og det var sjovt at læse en krimi, der finder sted et andet sted end de “sædvanlige”. Og det bedste er, at nu er bogen læst og kan gives videre. Jeg har nemlig en ambition om at skille mig af med 1.095 ting i år, tre ting i snit per dag (og heldigvis tæller hvert kort/hver mærkat, jeg laver og enten sælger eller giver væk, som én ting, ellers gik det vist aldrig godt 😱) – så hver en ting tæller!
Om bogen fra amazon.com:
“Deon Meyer’s novels explore the complex reality of South Africa . . . they are exciting stories of crime, conflict, and revenge.” —The Miami Herald
Blood Safari is a harrowing novel from internationally acclaimed thriller writer Deon Meyer, an expert storyteller whose wickedly fast narratives reveal the heart of his enthralling country.
In Blood Safari, Emma le Roux, a beautiful young woman in Cape Town, sees her brother named on the television news as the prime suspect in the killing of four poachers and a witch doctor. But it can’t be possible: Emma’s brother is supposed to be dead, having disappeared twenty years ago in Kruger National Park. Emma tries to find out more but is attacked and barely escapes. So she hires Lemmer, a personal security expert, and sets out into the country in search of the truth.
A complicated man with a dishonorable past, Lemmer just wants to do his job and avoid getting personally involved. But as he and Emma search for answers from the rural police, they encounter racial and political tensions, greed, corruption, and violence unlike anything they have ever known.
“With Deon Myer you can’t go wrong. He’s a writer whose work I admire, wait for, and then devour.” —Michael Connelly
