    1. Sometimes, it's very frustrating being a clever clogs. Or perhaps just someone who reads too much. This is a brilliant crime novel (so far), but, gosh, they need me on this case! Women discovered cracked open and with their lungs displayed? Police have no clue. Errblood eagle? UmVikings? Does anyone seriously not know this sort of stuff? And then a victim half remembers men with strange smooth faces all with one eye oh, come on. Vikings plus one-eyed men? Think about it Odin? ODIN: the God of th [...]



    2. Ein Serienmörder, dessen Taten anscheinend nicht nur einem kranken Geist entspringen, der von altnordischer Mythologie inspiriert ist, sondern die auch zunehmend in Verbindung zu stehen scheinen mit politischer Intrige. Ein undurchschaubares Spiel vom BND, der der Kriminalpolizei gegenüber offensichtlich Informationen zurückhält. Und ein Bürgermeister, dessen Rolle ebenfalls fraglich ist die Hamburger Kripo hat es nicht gerade leicht bei der Aufklärung der Taten. Und als sich herausstellt [...]


    3. Amazing journey thrue the mind of the killersI think i've become fan of this writer sometime thrue this book, the first book from him that i've read, but i hope its not the last one!


    4. I've actually had the pleasure of writing the German TV adaptation for this novel. Did I like the novel - you bet! I like dark and twisted, I like grisly - and Craig's delivered on that and ever so much more. He's created, with Hauptkommissar Jan Fabel of the Hamburg police, a truly iconic cop. A man in the middle of life, a good man, for once not a torn, broken or morally corrupt cop - he's a good man, all around, thoughtful, smart (of course), always tries to think of everyone. The novelist lo [...]


    5. “Blood Eagle” is the first book in Craig Russell’s series featuring Principal Chief Commisar Jan Fabel of the KriPo in Hamburg. This book is really more a thriller than a mystery, in some ways closely mimicking the sensational thrillers that are usually set in America. A serial killer is on the loose…a killer who leaves behind victims who have been murdered in what seems to be a brutal and ritualistic manner. Add to this the politics of Germany, the Ukraine, and Turkey and you’re left [...]


    6. With Blood Eagle, Russell pens a classic police thriller complete with gruesome murders, organised crime, police corruption and a driven yet flawed detective. The only thing missing is by modern standards the pacing is a little slow.Nonetheless Blood Eagle is a compelling piece on par with Thomas Harris, and James Patterson's earlier novels. Probably not for late night reading if you want safe dreams.



    7. "Thriller with the only difference to all others is that it is set in Germany. Uneccessarily gory and unbelievable, not recommended. "



    8. The last crime novels I read set in Hamburg were Cay Rademacher's Inspector Stave books set in the devastation and deprivation of the immediate aftermath of Germany's defeat in WWII, so I was very interested to try Craig Russell's Jan Faber series, a modern era take on crime and punishment in the city. Interestingly, Russell is a Scot, author of the Lennox crime novels set in Glasgow, my home town. Both cities have a certain reputation and don't appear automatically in lists of places people wan [...]


    9. Blood Eagle is a very complex crime thriller following the central detective, Fabel, as he tracks a serial killer in Hamburg. There is a strong mix of history, politics and crime, interwoven to provide a crime story which is challenging to predict. Cleverness of it's plot aside, the novel fails to create an edge-of-your-seat read. You will, however, want to see Blood Eagle deliver it's conclusion, which is rather remote from any initial ideas you might have, for the journey is full of modern soc [...]


    10. I found this a bit hard going at firstrtly because I found some of the German Police ranks confusing (I kept having to check them in the glossary) & I was struggling to keep track of all the different departments MEK, LKA7,BND etc etc - it all seemed to be very long words or initials! But after a few chapters I stopped caring & just got on & really enjoyed the story. The tension builds beautifully & the end finishes in such a way that you're bound to want to read the next in the [...]


    11. Vulturul Însângerat este un thriller cu nuanţe horror prin imaginea făurită de crimele Fiului lui Sven. Crime groteşti ce vor pune la grele încercări eforturile poliţiei din Hamburg. Un asasin ce va reprezenta cea mai mare provocare a lui Fabel şi a echipei sale. O învălmăşeală de evenimente ce vor fi mai mult decât un psihopat ce se joacă cu vieţile victimelor sale, testând, în acelaşi timp, şi capacitatea lui Fabel de a-şi apăra cetăţenii.goodread/recenzie-vulturul


    12. it had me hooked. was a bit challenging reading the German words but got used to it at the end. exciting thriller!




    13. Con la desafortunada traducción del título original "Blood Eagle" a "Muerte en Hamburgo", este libro, es el primero de una serie protagonizada por Jan Fabel, detective de homicidios de la policía de Hamburgo. La trama del libro versa sobre una serie de sangrientos asesinatos que se han realizado imitando a un milenario rito nórdico conocido como el águila de sangre -una ofrenda al dios Odín- cometidos por un asesino que se denomina a si mismo como el "Hijo de Sven".La identidad de las muje [...]


    14. What an amazing debut novel! I simply love the way that Russell writes! With his lush use of vocabulary and his turn of phrase he reminds me a bit of my very favorite author, John Connolly. It is so refreshing to see so much attention to detail to not only a murder plot, but also to the actual writing style in genre fiction. The plot, intricately laid out, untwists with enough clues to keep readers guessing, but also includes some very genuine surprises. And with that shocker of an ending, I am [...]


    15. Blutig, spannend, lehrreich! Craig Russell überrascht mit seinem ersten Roman der Jan-Fabel-Reihe mit vielen Elementen. Besonders Freunde der Geschichte, Politik und Mythologie kann man diesen Thriller wärmstens empfehlen. Die Charaktere sind gut gewählt; zusammen bilden sie alle ein eingespieltes Team, das sympathisiert. Den Schreibstil kann ich nicht kritisieren.Die Story ist durchweg spannend und gut aufgebaut. An einigen Stellen wirken die Kapitel vollgestopft mit wissenswerten Informatio [...]


    16. I find myself uncertain of my opinion of this book. While reading it, I was convinced that I was not entirely entertained, and found it easy to put down. Howeverw that it's finished, a month or so after the fact, I found myself looking for the second book in the series. I think part of this comes down to the obvious unfamiliarity with the setting and German terms used in the novel. While reading, they pulled me out of what was an otherwise engaging and original crime mystery. Having now read the [...]


    17. Nowhere near as smooth and professional as Eternal, this bears many hallmarks of being a debut novel. However, it still flows well (especially towards the end) and is overall a good read. I found myself missing the more scientific appeal from Eternal (which is #3 in the series Blood Eagle is #1), but, overall, the thematic similarities are so extreme that I'm kind of wondering how similar the books in this series are going to be! Eternal is quite close to being "Blood Eagle Draft 2", without goi [...]


    18. ฉากของฆาตกรรมของเรื่องนี้สยดสยองดีแท้เลยค่ะใครขวัญอ่อนคงไม่เหมาะที่จะอ่านเล่มนี้เท่าไหร่เพราะแม้แต่ตัวอิชั้นเอง ที่เพื่อนๆ ชอบกล่าวหาว่าซาดิสต์อ่านหนังสือแนวสยองขวัญ เล [...]


    19. This was the first crime thriller I've read in I'm not certain, but over a decade, for sure, and probably two. It is set in Hamburg, where I bought and started reading it, and it is exquisite. Russell has a masterful pace, knows Hamburg very, very well, and uses it to great effect, and the character of Jan Fabel is multi-faceted and appealing. I repeatedly had the feeling of "okay, now I know where this is going", only to be pleasantly surprised when that was not it at all.The murders themselves [...]


    20. A serial killer is stalking the streets of Hamburg leaving grisly scenes behind. The police must work out whether the motive is some form of cult, with ritualistic sacrifices, a political threat from some neo-nazi group or even, as some evidence suggests, someone within the police and/or security sectors. The detective in charge has a major problem rooting out the truth. Apart from getting my head around the use of German names for the police departments and the ranks of the officers this is a c [...]


    21. I've moved from Italy to Germany. To Hamburg which has more canals than Venice! And policemen with long German compound noun ranks. Here it is Erste Kriminalhauptkommissar Jan Fabel of mixed German/Scots descent. A decent cop caught in the midst of offences by criminals from half of Europe (or at least that's what it seems like). I don't know if Hamburg in particular and Germany in general has a problem with Turkish and Ukrainian mafias fighting turf wars. If there are I hope they are not as blo [...]


    22. Caos. Con una descripción bellísima de Hamburgo (se nota el apego del escritor con la ciudad) ed una historia que nos plantea muy bien al detective Fabel que no acepta medias tintas y busca llegar al fondo de una serie de asesinatos llenos de simbolismos; de esos personajes entrañables. La lectura puede volverse pesada por la variedad de siglas e instituciones policiacas que se mencionan. Rumbo al final todo sucede vertiginosamente y si estaban esperando una conclusión, habrá que continuar [...]


    23. It was 'Blood Eagle' an English hardback I read but this is the only cover that matches. And, having already made my mind up not to read Craig Russell's Hamburg/Jan Fabel series (preferring Scottish/Irish and already having enough of those to read) I picked it up in a library sale.So. Writing good, which I expected, characters and place well-drawn and plot tight and tension taut. Very gory. But oh those titles and initials!But I shall not hesitate to read Brothers Grimm, which is also on my shel [...]


    24. The book began quite slowly (although with a heavy murder scene)and introducing so many different strings and sub-plots that I didn't have much hope for it, yet Russell brings together all those strings very, very well and the book turned out much to its favor after 100 pages or so. I enjoyed the fact that a Scottish author is such an expert on German history and the city of Hamburg.I hear there is a TV movie adaptation, I can't yet imagine how the book was "tamed" for it, since it is not for th [...]


    25. Kitabı bitirmem uzun sürdü ama bu tamamen kitaptan kaynaklanan bir durum değil :) Başta Almanca kelimelere taktım. Bir türlü akışı yakalayamadım.Sonra kısmen alıştım bu duruma. Konu olarak kanlı cinayetler işleyen bir katil Komiser Jan Fabel'i seçer ve ona işlediği cinayetlerle ilgili e-mail gönderir. İş bununla bitmiyor tabi. Olaya Kanlı Kartal ayinleri, Ukrayna ve Türk mafyaları hatta özel polis birimleri bile karışmış vaziyette. O yüzden biraz karıştırdı k [...]
