Friedrich Durrenmatt is one of those authors German children are likely to encounter in school.
Der Richter und sein Henker / Der Verdacht
And, indeed, I have had to read one of his plays, and watch TV adaptations and listen to radio adaptations of various of his works. This being in school, I hated it, of course. It’s strange how I found myself wanting to read Durrenmatt again.
The realisation that many of my own friddrich about plots and characters and stories were shaped by a writer whose work I only knew superficially con Friedrich Durrenmatt is one of those authors German children ddrenmatt likely to encounter in school. The realisation that many of my own thoughts about plots and characters and stories were shaped by a writer whose work I only knew superficially convinced me to give him another shot.
Well, three shots, this being three books in one. Writing at a leisurely pace, using devices that are perhaps a little outdated, Durrenmatt has a distinctive friedrihc with language. His characters feel real, but in a slightly poetic way. When they speak, you listen. His detectives are wise but weak, foolhardy, and sometimes without scruples. There is some clunky exposition Durrenmatt may have a distinctive and enjoyable voice, and a twisted but delightfully sinister view of the world, but man, does he ever use outdated plot devices Basically, it is a story of an old detective who has to deal with a murder, and who seems to know more about who is the murderer than anyone else.
The ending is beautifully twisted. The criedrich story, Der Verdacht, is about the same detective, now dying, who by pure coincidence hears of a suspicion that a famous doctor might be an escaped war criminal. And he won’t let go of that suspicion until he knows the truth. It is also probably the weakest one, featuring too many happy coincidences, and some distinctly uncomfortable to read scenes featuring a dwarf.
It feels very s, having a sinister, monstrous, not actually human dwarf in a story.
Finally, Dee Verdacht, which has been turned into various movies Es geschah am hellichten Tag with Heinz Ruehmann and Gert Froebe and The Pledge with Jack Nicholsonis quite possibly the darkest of the three offerings here. The subtitle drrebmatt “Requiem for the genre of crime novel”. It is the story, as told by a retiring police comissioner, of a brilliant detective, and a serial child killer. After making the promise to find justice – and swearing on his very soul – the detective is forced to pursue it on his own.
The police force are satisfied that a suspect was guilty, but the detective has doubts.
He may be a brilliant detective, but he is also merciless, without scruples, and very, very cold and calculating. He sets a trap – and for a trap, one needs bait. The movies are harrowing, indeed, Es geschah am hellichten Tag is very famous and has been remade at least once.
Der Verdacht is more harrowing than the films. It may be a particularity of Swiss use of the German language, or it may be an outdated form, but the constant use of “das” in related to girls is eery.
Yes, it is “Das Maedchen”, but not usually “Das Marie”, or “Das Gritli” – having “das” accompany the name dreenmatt somewhat wrong to my ears. Then again, it’d sound normal for cutifications like “Gretchen”, so I suppose Gritli is Swiss for the same. I enjoyed reacuainting myself with Durrenmatt. I’d recommend this book to anyone.
