L'atmosfera idilliaca dell'isola di Sandhamn, nell'arcipelago di Stoccolma, viene turbata dall'ombra della morte e del delitto. Il corpo di un uomo di mezza età affiora accanto a uno scoglio, avvolto in una rete da pesca. L'uomo è Krister Berggren, viveva da solo in uno squallido appartamento della periferia di Stoccolma, e a casa sua le uniche tracce di un qualche rapporto con altri esseri umani sono una foto della madre e una cartolina della cugina Kicki. E anche quest'ultima, Kicki, viene trovata uccisa, avvelenata. Le indagini sono affidate all'ispettore Thomas Andreasson, che può contare sull'aiuto di una sua amica d'infanzia, Nora Linde, avvocato. La scia di delitti è finita o continuerà? E le due vittime sono state eliminate dallo stesso assassino? Per scoprirlo, Thomas e Nora dovranno portare alla luce inconfessabili segreti

Beneath the imposing Kollen Mountain lies a small village where the children run in and out of one another's houses and play unafraid in the streets. But when a naked body is found by the lake at the top of the mountain, its seeming tranquillity is disturbed forever. Inspector Sejer, a tough, no-nonsense policeman whose own life is tinged by sadness, is called in to investigate. As the suspense builds, and the list of suspects grows, Sejer's determination to discover the truth leads him to peel away layer upon layer of distrust and lies in this tiny community where apparently normal family ties hide dark secrets. Critically acclaimed across Europe and loved by fellow crime writers including Jo Nesbo, Ruth Rendell and Colin Dexter, Karin Fossum's novels evoke a world that is terrifyingly familiar.

Elizabeth George's masterly new novel brings Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley back onto centre stage in an intricate crime drama. While DI Thomas Lynley is still on compassionate leave after the murder of his wife, Isabelle Ardery is brought into the Met as his temporary replacement. The discovery of a body in a Stoke Newington cemetery offers Isabelle the chance to make her mark with a high profile murder investigation. Persuading Lynley back to work seems the best way to guarantee a result: Lynley's team is fiercely loyal to him and Isabelle needs them - and especially Barbara Havers - on side. The Met is twitchy: a series of PR disasters has undermined its confidence. Isabelle knows that she'll be operating under the unforgiving scrutiny of the media, so is quick - perhaps too quick - to pin the murder on a convenient suspect. The murder trail leads Lynley and Havers to the New Forest, and the eventual resolution of the case. Its roots are in a long-ago act of violence that has poisoned subsequent generations and its outcome is both tragic and shocking.

La sessualità - che ispira da sempre simbologie e pratiche dei momenti di festa -, ed il corpo - con le sue diverse forme di espressione - sono momenti centrali del dibattito scientifico. E i saperi tradizionali tornano a rappresentare un'indiscutibile risorsa per aiutarci a comprendere le culture della sessualità. In questa raccolta di saggi, alcuni noti antropologi - tra cui Gian Luigi Bravo, Antonino Buttitta, Luigi M. Lombardi Satriani - analizzano le forme in cui si esprimono gli universi simbolici e le forme rituali fondamentali del ciclo vitale umano. Arricchisce l'opera il saggio fotografico di Jean Dominique Lajoux, che ricostruisce, attraverso immagini raccolte da chiese, capitelli, statue, scenari festivi sacri e profani, l'immaginario erotico europeo dal Medioevo ai nostri giorni.

La sonnolenta quotidianità in cui il capitano Marcus d’Ivoire e il suo piccolo esercito sono risucchiati, rassegnati a finire i propri giorni in un remoto avamposto, è stravolta dallo scoppio di una ribellione ai margini dell’impero Vordanai, che li costringerà alla dura prova della difesa di una fortezza ai margini del deserto. Winter Ihernglass si è arruolata nell’esercito fingendosi un uomo, con il solo scopo di sfuggire al suo passato.

Berlin, 1932. In the final weeks of the Weimar Republic, as Hitler and his National Socialist party angle to assume control of Germany, beautiful girls are seen sleepwalking through the streets. Then, a young woman of mysterious origin, with her legs bizarrely deformed, is pulled dead from the Havel River. Willi Kraus, a high ranking detective in Berlin's police force, begins a murder investigation. A decorated World War I hero and the nation's most famous detective, Willi also is a Jew. Despite his elite status in the criminal police, he is disturbed by the direction Germany is taking. Working urgently to identify the dead woman and solve the murder, Willi finds his superiors diverting him at every turn, and is forced to waste precious time on a politically-sensitive missing person case. Colleagues seem to avoid him; a man on a streetcar stops him from reading a newspaper over his shoulder; he is uncomfortably aware of being watched. But he persists, and soon enters the dangerous Berlin underworld of debauched nightclubs, prostitutes with secrets to hide, and a hypnotist with troubling connections. As he moves through darkness closer to the truth, Willi begins to understand that much more than the solution to a murder is at stake. What he discovers will mean that his life, the lives of his friends and family, and Germany itself will never be the same The Sleepwalkers is a powerful, dramatic debut thriller of a nation's unstoppable corruption, featuring a good man trapped between his duty to serve and his grave doubts about what, and who, he serves.

A delightfully Italian mystery, with undercurrent of satire, which keeps the reader guessing. Every Thursday for three years, Signora Giulia takes the train to Milan to visit her daughter. But one Thursday she simply disappears. And the case is left in your hands. You're a born detective, but you have so many unanswered questions - how can a young, beautiful high society woman just vanish into thin air? Why does her husband - a prominent criminal lawyer and much older man - know nothing about it? And who was she really visiting during those trips to Milan? For Detective Sciancalepre, the mystery is darker and more tangled than he imagined. Shadows are lurking in the grounds behind Giulia's house. Incriminating letters are exchanging hands. And no one is who they seem. Every twist and turn takes us closer to Giulia - and further from the truth.... Piero Chiara (born in 1913) worked as a court employee until the outbreak of Word War Two. When the Fascist authorities issued a warrant for his arrest in 1944 he fled to Switzerland, where his first work of literature, a collection of poetry entitled Incantavi, was published in 1945. After the war he returned to Italy, and became one of the most celebrated writers of the post-war period. The winner of more than a dozen literary prizes - including the 1964 Campiello and the 1979 Bancarello - he is widely read and studied in his home country, and his stories and novels have been adapted for both television and film. Piero Chiara died in 1986. The Disappearance of Signora Giulia is his first book to be translated into English.
