Beschreibung

‘They killed him. It was bad money.’ A dying hospice patient gasps these cryptic words about her recently-deceased husband. Brunetti softly promises he will look into what appears to be a private family tragedy. He discovers that her husband worked for a company that monitored the cleanliness of Venice’s water supply and that he had died in a motorcycle accident.

Distracted briefly by Vice Questore Patta’s obsession with youth crime in Venice, Brunetti turns to the remarkable research skills of Patta’s secretary, Signora Elettra Zorzi. With her help, Brunetti comes to realize the perilous meaning in the dying woman’s accusation and the threat it reveals to the health of the entire region.

‘Atmospheric, clever, witty and amusing. If I were only allowed to read one crime series again it would be that of Donna Leon.’ ­
The Times

Pace too slow

It starts with the case (that I only recognized as a 'case' because it is mentioned in the blurb) but then it takes Brunetti a third of the book - which equals one day - before he picks up his inquiries. In between there young pickpocketing girls mentioned (I had no clue why that was in there in the first place) and detailled description of every step Brunetti takes, every move he makes, every snack he eats, every room he enters or plaza he crosses or book he opens. I appreciate a sense for detail, but the author should also keep in mind the pace of the story. And this pace was way to slow, which made the whole story a bit boring to me. Although the topic as such is worth a detective story, but it is dwarfed by too much insignificant 'trace elements'.

Ich habe alle Brunettis gelesen, über die Jahre hinweg. Ich fand schon die letzten beiden nicht so dolle, aber Trace Elements fand ich regelrecht langweilig.

Ich habe alle Brunettis gelesen, über die Jahre hinweg. Ich fand schon die letzten beiden nicht so dolle, aber Trace Elements fand ich regelrecht langweilig. Es war so lieblos, vor sich hinplätschernd, wenig von der sonst immer schönen Beschreibung Venedigs und auch wenig Details zum Essen, etc. Die Handlung ist nicht sehr schlüssig, mir erschließt sich einfach nicht, warum der Umweltsünder so davon kommt. Das nächste Buch werde ich wahrscheinlich nicht mehr lesen, es sei denn, ich habe bis dahin vergessen, wie langweilig Trace Elements war!
