Revue de presse

'1222 is an homage to Agatha Christie's Miss Marple - or Miss Marple as a badass, paralysed Norwegian lesbian detective... Holt translates the classic locked room mystery into a modern thriller.' The Times 'Like a mash-up of Steig Larsson, Jeffery Deaver and Agatha Christie.' Daily Mirror 'Step aside, Stieg Larsson, Holt is the queen of Scandinavian crime thrillers.' Red 'Anne Holt is the latest crime writer to reveal how truly dark it gets in Scandinavia' Val McDermid 'A splendidly chilling read' The Observer 'If you haven't heard of Anne Holt, you soon will... A variation on the classic locked room mystery, Holt had capitalized on old-fashioned suspense to great effect' Daily Mail 'It's easy to see why Anne Holt, the former minister of justice in Norway and currently its bestselling female crime writer, is rapturously received in the rest of Europe - the build up of tension is slow but superbly effective. Holt's vivid depiction of claustrophobia, petty squabbles and mob hysteria is just as convincing as her evocation of the storm outside. --The Guardian

Présentation de l'éditeur

THE LATEST INSTALMENT IN THE HANNE WILHELMSEN SERIES: A snowbound mountain pass, a derailed train, a locked, shuttered and heavily guarded carriage, an apocalyptic storm, an ancient hotel, old betrayals, murder and state secrets.

1222 METRES ABOVE SEA LEVEL: train 601 from Oslo to Bergen careens off iced rails as the worst snowstorm in Norwegian history gathers force around it. With night falling and the temperature plummeting, its 269 passengers are forced to abandon their snowbound train and find shelter in a centuries-old mountain hotel. Before dawn breaks, one of them will be murdered.

Trapped by the killer within, trapped by the deadly storm outside, Hanne Wilhelmsen's unease is mounting. Why was the last train carriage sealed? Why is the top floor of the hotel locked down? And, of course, what if the killer strikes again?

Ce huis clos est intéressant même si l'histoire est un peu invraisemblable. On se laisse prendre au jeu. Le style est un peu lent, parfois un peu décousu. Mais dans l'ensemble c'est un livre que je recommande.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Henning Mankell meets Agatha Christie 21 mars 2011
Par Bob - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is a modern re-working of the traditional 'country house' murder mystery genre. It is a generally enjoyable book with more than a nod to Agatha Christie (although has more of a similarity to her short story "The Erymanthian Boar" (in "The Labours of Hercules") than the explicitly-referenced "And Then There Were None". There is even a Poirot-esque denouement in the final chapters of the book.

Like Poirot, the main protagonist - ex-police officer Hanne Wilhelmsen - follows in the tradition of 'detective as outcast'. As a disabled lesbian, the character of Hanne could have been used as a 'poster child' for political correctness; instead, her sense of 'otherness' is caused mainly by her somewhat irascible personality; this is not an issues-driven book.

However, there are too many characters in the novel for the reader to actually care about most of them. I found myself having to look back to remind myself about whether a character had been mentioned before and in what context. A smaller cast would have helped the flow of the storyline and made it more streamlined. As it is, it is difficult to care about any of the deaths. Also, the ending appears to be influenced too much by Dan Brown - the novel would have been much improved had it finished a few pages earlier with the departure of the remaining guests.

Stylistically the book evokes Henning Mankell more than anyone else, although this may be due to the translation. Although the translation is generally good there are a few points that don't quite work. For example, a crucial misheard message doesn't quite work in English as the words wouldn't have been confused by a competent lip-reader (which Hanne appears to be). This is a minor point, but these occasional jarring moments did serve to remind me that I was, in fact, reading a translation.

Other than that, this book is well worth reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Murder in the snow 2 février 2011
Par Cloggie Downunder - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Anne Holt's latest novel is "1222". The numbers refer to the height above sea level of the town where this modern version of the classic crime story takes place. The story starts with a derailment just as the train leaves Finesnut on its journey from Olso to Bergen. Plenty of injuries, but the train driver is the lone casualty. Amongst the 269 passengers who are evacuated to the nearby century-old mountain hotel are self-indulgent teens, German tourists, a church group, a sports team, the unseen occupants of a mysterious extra carriage, a group of doctors (conveniently for those injured) on their way to a conference and retired police inspector Hanne Wilhelmsen. Add some locals and hotel staff, a snowstorm to ensure everyone has to stay put, a murder (or two) and you have the definitive locked room mystery. Hanne is not Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot: there's no rubbing of hands together with glee at the challenge; she doesn't want to get involved. Hanne is paralysed, confined to a wheelchair, limited to the lobby level. Whilst relying on those around her for some pertinent information, her powers of observation and deduction are obviously acute and she has the case solved in time for the classic denouement when the cops finally arrive.
Anne Holt gives us a prickly heroine. She's cynical, perceptive, has a very dry sense of humour and an incisive wit. Hanne's inner monologue is a delight; her other characters and the dialogue are realistic and the action is non-stop. Holt touches on several topical issues and throws in a bit of philosophy. The Beaufort scale chapter headings are a fitting touch. "1222" gives the reader undiluted pleasure throughout: this novel is hard to put down. Marlaine Delargy's excellent translation certainly deserves a mention.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A mystery just the way I like it 15 novembre 2011
Par Pedro Araujo - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Whenever I come across a new book from Anne Holt I buy it and read it in anticipation. She is a master not only in creating a certain atmoophere of cold tension but also in making it all believable. Most of the times the characters are split between their fears and anxieties and their pragmatic sense. 1222 is no exception. Hanne Wilhelmsen, a retired police officer, finds herself in a train accident and is dragged unwillingly into a crime investigation. Actually she starts leading the investigation as all access to the crime scene is cut off from the outside world due to the worst tempest in the history of Norway. Torn between her desire to be kept separate from the mob and, thus, keep her protective shell intact, and the urge to interact and therefore experience a little humanity, Wilhelmsen makes use of all her investigative skills to unveil the circumstances surrounding the crime.
1222 contains some of the main elements of a traditional crime novel: a closed environment with a restricted number of suspects, a number of clues that puts us on the wrong track for a while until a new light on the events pushes us back on track. Even the traditional final scene, when the detective gathers all the suspects and starts asking questions and unveiling the events that led to the crime itself... it's all there, and when the final piece of the puzzle fits you can't help but to feel like you've taken part in the investigation as well or, at least, like you've been a spectator of it.
Overall it's a great reading and Holt's narrative skills will make you long for more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Average thriller with a sensationalist spin 3 janvier 2011
Par Keris Nine - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It doesn't take too long to establish that 1222 is a thriller of the drawing-room murder-mystery variety, where a group of people are holed-up together in a remote, isolated location, cut off from society with a killer among them. The similarity to Agatha Christie's classic And Then There Were None is so obvious it even occurs to Henne Wilhelmusen, a wheelchair-bound retired police officer who finds she cannot remain indifferent to the rapidly deteriorating situation amongst a group of 196 people trapped in a remote Norwegian mountain hotel in Finse, 1222 metres above sea-level, with a vicious winter storm raging outside.

Holt plays out the situation in a fairly conventional manner, which is to say, it has much in common with the Disaster Movie. Although it is a train accident on the Oslo-Bergen line that has left them all stranded in the hotel Finse 1222 - trapped in a community with no in-roads and only accessible by the now closed railway line - the only casualty of the accident has however been the driver. When other violent deaths start to occur, speculation - not to mention hysteria - runs wild, particularly over the existence of a mysterious extra carriage attached to the train with armed security, rumoured to contain a member of the Norwegian Royal Family, or perhaps some other very important or indeed dangerous person.

The Disaster Movie convention applies here to the cross-section of the public to be found on the train, which if it isn't statistically representative of Norwegian society in microcosm, at least contains the types of characters - businessmen, priests, doctors, trouble-making youths, celebrities, right-wing extremists and a small smattering of Muslims - where tensions are inevitably going to arise and divisions formed when they are all pushed together into a extreme, stressful situation. While Henne would appear to also be a token minority figure in more than one respect, she actually turns out is perhaps the most intriguing, unpredictable and non-stereotypical element of 1222, her background and attitudes remaining complex and untypical for a lead character.

Elsewhere however, while it certainly delivers on all the expected plot-points and thrills that come with this type of situation, the novel doesn't really have a lot to offer that is new or original and it can often be rather irritatingly predictable and overly stage-managed, as these types of thrillers tend to be. Much of the success of the book then will depend on how you react to an ending which attempts to give the subject a rather more modern topical spin. Not having been sufficiently established earlier, it does however feel somewhat sensationalist and patched-on to a main narrative that is, at best, a rather average Agatha Christie-style drawing-room murder mystery.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Depth to writing often not found; Wonderful characters 3 septembre 2012
Par E. B. MULLIGAN - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The author's narrative skill is the best in the business and the brilliant reveal at the end was terrific. Mysteries abound (who is the passenger in a private rail car now in the hotel penthouse?) and some don't come to light til the last chapter.

Bestselling Scandinavian author Anne Holt does a good job of not boring those who know the series, while giving new readers great intro (however there are a couple spoilers). My household is anxiously awaiting the rest of the 8 volume series. Wonderful characters; Depth to writing often not found.

What you need to know-

* A train headed to northern Norway
* derails in a blizzard killing the engineer
* 269 passengers shelter in a remote historic hotel (think `The Shining').
* And just like `Murder on the Orient Express' someone shows up dead
* 47 year old Hanne Wilhelmsen is a passenger
* She's a retired police inspector who has no desire to get involved
* She's been paralyzed by a bullet and bitter
* Then another Murder, panic by the passengers!
* Bigotry & racism come out of the closet and a cast of quirky characters come to life

Excellent translation
