  • La promessa: Un requiem per il romanzo giallo By Friedrich Dürrenmatt Silvano Daniele, Promisi sulla mia coscienza di trovare l assassino, solo per non essere costretto a vedere ancora il dolore di quei genitori e ora devo mantenere la mia promessa Il freddo e infallibile investigatore, il commissario Matth i, vincolato all impegno preso, e obbligato a risolvere il caso di una bambina di sette anni brutalizzata e uccisa in un bosco Ma La promessa , Promisi sulla mia coscienza di trovare l assassino, solo per non essere costretto a vedere ancora il dolore di quei genitori e ora devo mantenere la mia promessa Il freddo e infallibile investigatore, il commissario Matth i, vincolato all impegno preso, e obbligato a risolvere il caso di una bambina di sette anni brutalizzata e uccisa in un bosco Ma La promessa , antiromanzo giallo , liquida con un massimo di crudelt e finezza il genere poliziesco colpendolo proprio alla radice, cio nella sua favolosa e assoluta consequenzialit Gli elementi del genere ci sono tutti i colleghi, ottusi o altezzosi, che si rifiutano di prestare fede alle sorprendenti intuizioni del commissario un delitto raccapricciante con drammatici precedenti un presunto colpevole e la sorpresa finale, con lo scioglimento del mistero e la rivelazione dell autentico assassino Tutto viene per parodisticamente distorto e deformato nella celebrazione funebre del personaggio del detective e del racconto giallo tradizionali D rrenmatt sostituisce alla morale pratica di ogni poliziotto il delitto non paga una morale metafisica in cui regna l assurdo il razionale non prevale affatto sul caos, o almeno non fatalmente, e chi fa affidamento sulla razionalit finisce per esserne la prima incompresa vittima.

    1. The best detective novel I have ever read and probably the best I shall ever read Ingeniously constructed, it can be read as a deconstruction of the genre

    2. Das Versprechen Requiem auf den Kriminalroman The Pledge, Friedrich D rrenmatt The Pledge German Das Versprechen is a crime novella by Swiss author Friedrich D rrenmatt, published in 1958 D rrenmatt uses a first person narrative to insert himself into a frame story as a writer of detective fiction However, the primary narrator is actually a character named Dr H a retired police chief who takes on the role of explaining to D rrenmatt s first person character the flaws of the detective literature [...]

    3. A Swiss BanvilleShould a detective story have rational plot appeal Must the clues and hints left by the author lead anywhere Are the aesthetics of a mystery dependent upon its conclusion Friedrich Durrenmatt thought decidedly not.For Durrenmatt, it is the presence of the mystery itself, and its affect on those involved in it that is the point of the detective story The details are important not because they add up to anything although they might but because the investigators are affected by what [...]

    4. Can a story that starts with the murder of a little girl, ever have a happy ending How is it possible that an innocent man confesses a crime and then kills himself Why is a brilliant detective driven into madness by his own brilliant theory Those are the questions raised by the book.What is interesting about this literary detective story, which, by the way, is subtitled Requiem for the Detective Novel , is its genesis In the beginning D rrenmatt wrote the screenplay for a film dealing with sexua [...]

    5. I had to read this for university and I ll probably have nightmares tonight, just like I did when I watched the movie adaptation a few years back I m just not used to reading crime stories I had goosebumps countless times while reading this and couldn t put it down though A great story, although an extremely depressing one.

    6. Friedrich D rrenmatt wrote Das Versprechen published in English as The Pledge after he was asked to write a film script for a project that would end up being one of the seminal moments of German Swiss film making Es geschah am hellichten Tag It Happened in Broad Daylight.The 1958 version of the film is most memorable because it is somewhat unprecedented in raising public awareness of sex crimes against children What s is that the film cast actors who were most known to the audience of the time [...]

    7. If you want the long review, click on through I absolutely LOVED this book The Pledge is a novel of one man s obsession it is at the same time a critique of writers who pen detective fiction and mysteries There s no heart pounding plot here, just a very smooth narrative of a detective s obsession with solving a case based on a promise he made And though it was written a very long time ago, it is still a novel of great quality, 5 star reading material I cannot recommend this novel highly enough a [...]

    8. Excellent little book D rrenmatt, a well known avant garde dramatist and essayist, wrote this little philosophical who dunnit in c 1957 and, despite some stiffness of the translation in places common, I suppose, with books written in German , wholly successful.

    9. L ex capo della polizia di Zurigo offre un passaggio in auto ad uno scrittore di gialli e durante questo viaggio, gli racconta di un vecchio caso di omicidio Il corpicino della piccola Grietli Moser viene ritrovato seviziato in un bosco da un ambulante, che, accusato del crimine, si suicida in cella Ad indagare sul caso chiamato l ispettore Matthai ottimo investigatore e persona dal comportamento ineccepibile che sin da subito non crede nella colpevolezza dell indagato e promette ai genitori del [...]

    10. This detective story was like a sneeze that never was I have now read three of Friedrich s detective novels, and am about to finish the fourth, and I have to say they are getting and bizarre The first one, Der Richter und sein Henker, condensed the plot into concentrate, was fast moving, and wasted nothing on ornamental back stories or other accidental trimmings The second, Der Verdacht, changed its mind on what it was half way through the story, and morphed from crime mystery to psychological [...]

    11. Film only winter 2012 2013 translationpub 1958 switzerland mystery short story Adapted for the screen in 2000 in a film directed by Sean Penn and starring Jack Nicholson Okay I was well fed up that the film was set in US as most of the initial attraction lay in anticipation of the Swiss countryside, however after a short while that didn t matter so much as this was masterful What a cast here Jack Nicholson as Jerry Black Patricia Clarkson as Margaret Larsen Benicio del Toro as Toby Jay Wadenah A [...]

    12. Wow Just wow.In acest roman, scurt si intens ca un shot de tequila, Durrenmatt le da peste nas autorilor de romane politiste si ne demonstreaza cum munca de politist inseamna, de fapt, mult mai mult decat rationamente si indicii Si ne arata cum, in realitate, intamplarea joaca un rol mult mai important decat s ar crede Uneori, chiar un rol hotarator.Avem deci de a face cu un paradox Fagaduiala este 100% fictiune, dar maiestria autorului imbraca romanul in haine de caz real Haine care i se potriv [...]

    13. Nothing is crueler than a genius who stumbles over something idiotic Nichts ist grausamer als ein Genie, das ber etwas Idiotisches stolpert The Pledge Das Versprechen is much than a short murder mystery It is a psychological thriller about what happens when obsession drives genius to madness In this case the obsession is justice justice for a mother whose daughter has been murdered.A young girl s body has been found in a wooded area outside a Swiss village She is the third girl to have been sex [...]

    14. I can see why this would have been popular when it was written in the 1950s, but nowadays it mostly just seems quaint This is especially so because DNA testing would render the entire story pointless in today s world of mysteries Still, it s a worthwhile and fast read, good if you have anything like a Sunday reading plan The story is set in Switzerland, which was probably the most interesting thing about it for me I groove on those cultural and lifestyle tidbits This is a different sort of myste [...]

    15. I ve read a lot of good things about this book in the past few years, perhaps because of the new translation by Joel Agee, and so I finally decided I shouldn t any longer delay reading it Naturally, when my library ordered up a copy for me nowhere in the libraries of this large and populous county of New Jersey was there one to be had what arrived was an ancient and battered copy of the first US edition, translated by Richard and Clara Winston Having read this version, I m uncertain why a new tr [...]

    16. Ieri notte, quando ho iniziato La promessa , stato quasi un gioco una challenge, poco sonno, voglia di leggere qualcosa di breve Adesso, appena terminato il libro, mi sento vuota abbastanza da capire che si trattato, probabilmente, di una delle letture pi belle mai portate a termine Al centro una promessa, quella di un poliziotto ai lati, la folle ricerca della verit , una verit che pu essere una e una sola, che forse, per qualcuno, non verr mai a galla, o che forse sempre stata l , sotto gli oc [...]

    17. Peter Handke hatte Recht als er sagte nach dem Lesen von Das Versprechen hat man das Bed rfnis sich beim Autor zu bedanken Ein kluges, starkes und dabei so subtiles Buch, das sich rasch wegliest, aber noch lange nachhallt.

    18. I picked this up because Robert Bola o name dropped D rrenmatt in 2666 at this point I don t even remember what he said but he spoke of him glowingly enough or at least enticingly enough that I picked this up along with one other D rrenmatt novel.I m thinking Bola o was thinking of a different D rrenmatt book or books when he made the reference This wasn t bad nor was it good , it was a passable little crime novel, but there are loads better, many of them coming out of Europe over the last few d [...]
