Présentation de l'éditeur

Praise for Entanglement:

“An exquisite contemporary crime story. Polish literature boasts a real master.”—Jerzy Pilch, author of The Mighty Angel

“A tightly plotted mystery novel, dark humor and contemporary Warsaw perfectly rendered.”—Przekrój Magazine

The morning after a group psychotherapy session in a Warsaw monastery, Henry Talek is found dead, a roasting spit stuck in one eye.

Public prosecutor Teodor Szacki, world-weary, suffering from bureaucratic exhaustion and marital ennui, feels that life has passed him by. But this case changes everything. Because of it he meets Monika Grzelka, a young journalist whose charms prove difficult to resist, and he discovers the frightening power of certain esoteric therapeutic methods. The shocking videos of the sessions lead him to an array of possible scenarios. Could one of the patients have become so absorbed by his therapy role-playing that he murdered Telak? Szacki’s investigation leads him to an earlier murder, before the fall of Communism.

And why is the Secret Police suddenly taking an interest in all this? As Szacki uncovers each piece of the puzzle, facts emerge that he’d be better off not knowing, for his own safety.

Zygmunt Miloszewski, born in Warsaw in 1975, is an editor currently working for Newsweek. His first novel, The Intercom, was published in 2005 to high acclaim. Entanglement followed in 2007, and the author is now working on screenplays based on The Intercom and Entanglement as well as on a sequel to the latter, also featuring Teodor Szacki.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Excellent Crime book 28 avril 2014
Par PhR
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have been caught by the author's style: the characters and the atmosphere all of that in a quite pessimistic background of the society. And some dry humour here and there. Comparable to Connelly and Mankell. Excellent.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Powerful Polish Crime Fiction 4 août 2010
Par Lisa Marie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Our Scandinavian friends might want to start looking over their shoulders now that Poland has produced such an impressive talent as Zygmunt Mioszewski who has crafted a stylish, twisty, and complex crime novel. The story focuses on brooding Warsaw prosecutor Teodor Szacki, bored and restless with his job and life - that is, until a murder occurs during a weekend group therapy session. The murder provides practically no clues for Teodor and his team to work with and he becomes increasingly frustrated at the lack of progress they seem to be making. During the investigation, he meets an attractive reporter who is looking for a scoop and is soon contemplating an affair. Teodor's private and personal lives seem to be heading towards a collision course, with the murder investigation at the crux of it all.

Neither storyline nor character development is shortchanged here as the author deftly creates an engrossing mystery while fleshing out characters beautifully. (As another reviewer stated, even the city of Warsaw and its history become a vibrant part of the story.) Readers who enjoy procedurals should relish this story, as well as fans of international crime fiction a la Mankell, Indridason and Larsson. This is contemporary crime fiction at its best.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 fascinating Polish police procedural 28 juillet 2010
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
In 2005 at a Warsaw monastery, a demanding group therapy session occurs hosted by Cezary Rudski. He tells a tale to the three of his four patents (Euzebiusz Kiam, Hanna Kwiatkowska and Barbara Jarczyk) who remain at the table; Henryk Talek is not there as the therapist assumes he left unable to cope with the intensity.

The next day Henryk is found dead; a roasting spit jammed into his eye. Warsaw prosecutor Teodor Szack leads the investigation, but has no energy for the case. He is bone wearily tired as he interviews the therapist and the three surviving patients. However, he soon finds his inquiry intriguing as he uncovers a link to a cold case homicide over two decades ago when the Communists ran roughshod. Adding to his renewed vigor is meeting enthusiastic reporter Monika Grzelka whose beauty and élan revitalizes him. However, Szack also wonders why the Secret Police are following his every move.

This is a fascinating Polish police procedural in which almost two decades since the fall of the Iron Curtain mysteries remain tied to the Communist era. The investigation is cleverly devised and the ennui Szarck feels at first is powerful as is his sudden zest for life after meeting the energetic journalist. However, the key to Zygmunt Miloszewski's engaging whodunit is Warsaw as the city comes across modern yet retains the scars of communism.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Exacting, at times tedious, but shows promise 16 octobre 2011
Par M. Drudzinski - Publié sur Amazon.com
The 20th Century was not kind to Poland. Utter defeat in WWII followed by an era of oppressive Communism, with a dose of old repressive Catholicism thrown into the mix, have combined to make Poland an often dark, dreary place -- full of ghosts, contradictions and ugly history. And the fiction the nation has produced over the last 50 years often reflects this: if you're not reading about the Nazi invaders and their concentration camps, you're reading about the grayness and absurdity of life during the Communist era. Interesting stuff, certainly, but depressing -- and a repetitive theme in Poland's canon.

I saw Entanglement in a book store, and since I'm an avid reader of genre fiction (crime novels/police procedurals) I thought I'd give it a go. Maybe Polish writers are trying to break out of the bleak past and contribute to more contemporary literary trends, I thought.

However, there might not be an escape from the themes of other Polish novels, because the best European genre writers -- Steig Larsson, Jo Nesbo and Henning Mankell among others -- often use the genre novel to unearth difficult secrets about their people's history. In Entanglement, Zygmunt Miloszewski does the same: the sins of the Communist era weigh heavily on this murder story.

But it's not as oppressive as in other Polish fiction, because this novel is as much about a man experiencing a mid-life crisis, state prosecutor Teodor Szacki, and his city (Warsaw) as it is about the investigation of a crime with roots in the secret police's activities in 1980s Poland.

Like Arnaldur Indridason's Inspector Erlender, Miloszewski's Szacki is a compelling character who draws you into this story. He is as frustrated with his ennui as he is by a seemingly unsolvable case. This excerpt is of his thoughts as he considers an affair with a younger woman:

"Everything in his life had already happened. He would never be young again, he would never fall in love with the feelings of a twenty-year-old, he'd never be so deeply in love that nothing else mattered. So many emotions were going to be repeats now... His age, his wife, his daughter -- at once it all felt like a sentence, an incurable disease."

The author does a brilliant job detailing Szacki's internal struggle. He is a conscientious man who falls prey to the weaknesses a lot of aging men experience. But we forgive him, because he is aware of how cliche all of his feelings are, and as far as the murder case goes, he is a man obsessed with finding the truth, who seeks to bring some form of justice into this sad, unjust world.

I gave this book 4 stars, but it's more like 3.5. There is a lot of promise here: Szacki is sympathetic, like a lot of investigators in genre fiction. He's someone we can relate to, because of his internal monologues, so we want to read more about the choices he makes as the pressure mounts. Also working in the novel's favor: the climatic scenes are powerful, visceral, even profound. The impact of the crime on the present is disturbingly palpable -- just as the impact of the 20th Century is on Poland's present.

But the story moves at a glacial pace. Miloszewski is a former journalist, so he takes great pains digging into layer after layer of history. It's the kind of detail readers love, but many scenes extend too long, and I felt bored at times.

I think Miloszewski has great potential. He's supposedly writing another novel featuring state prosecutor Teodor Szacki. If Entanglement is just the beginning, I think future novels have great promise.

I think the novel is worth reading, it just could have used a better edit -- whole sections could have been trimmed without compromising the story -- and it could have used more action-filled scenes to push the story along faster. Entanglement doesn't quite match Larsson, Nesbo or Mankell, but it gets close. In the future, Miloszewski could match his European peers and gain a wider audience.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 crime fiction with an unusual twist 12 février 2014
Par Joan Redemer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had heard a review of the second novel featuring Polish State Prosecutor Szacki, which sounded very interesting and I decided to start with the first in the series.
This is not a fast paced whodunnit, but rather a steady investigation of a murder, with an emphasis on why and how. It explores the Poland's communist era and the repercussions of the secret police.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
I have discovered that I quite enjoy reading translated books. Each translator has his or her own voice which they bring to the translation. This is a very good translation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling Reading 16 septembre 2013
Par Eric A. Foster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A mystifying murder involving Bert Hellingers constellation psycho-therapy and the implications of the secret services in Communist Poland. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and I believe Miloszewski an excellent novelist. Wikipedia informs me that ‘Entanglement won the High Calibre Prize for the best Polish novel in 2007. ‘A Grain of Truth also won the same prize in 2011.

His work is characterised by very original plotlines which also reflect on Polish social/political issues in a thought provoking way.
Highly recommended.
