    1. Kayankaya has grown up a little, he is more mature and compassionate in this book than in the first two in the series. Although he still navigates the underbelly and casual racism of German society with his unique brand of sarcasm and rebellion. A delight of well-written dialogue, real Frankfurt atmosphere, and unsavoury characters galore.


    2. Hard-boiled prose, lean, clean dialogue, hard bitten as Sam Spade, cynically cool as Philip Marlowe. Kemal Kayankaya is a worthy successor to the great noir characters and hard boiled detectives of the past. This isn't a parody or a cheap imitation, Jakob Arjouni has created the real thing. Beautiful! Jakob Arjouni tells a tale that could have come off of the mean streets of Chandler's Los Angles or Hammet's San Francisco, or Chicago or New York or Boston but it takes place in Frankfurt, Germany [...]


    3. Ana karakter Türk bir dedektifti ve ben bunu kitabı okumaya başlamadan bilmiyordum. Kemal Kayankaya karakteri öyle sevdirdi ki kendini bana! Normalde böylesine ısınabilmem için karaktere uzun soluklu bir kitap olması ya da seriye ait olması gerekir romanın. Ama yazarın kalemi çok hoşuma gitti, mizah süperdi kitapta. Diğer yandan olayı takip edemedim, kopukluklar yaşadım, ayrıca öyle çok şaşırtan bir vaka da değildi hani.


    4. I have finished this book today, and found it quite okay. Although sometimes a bit detailed, the story was okay, but it lacked some story plot and it ended kind of weird. I still enjoyed reading it though, but I don't think I will ever pick this book up again.




    5. Review of Melville House's new crime imprint and the Kayankaya series in particular (including Happy Birthday, Turk!, One Man, One Murder, More Beer, and Kismet) published in The L Magazine. See review (here: goo/qJ5RD) or full text below.***“Crime=Culture.” So says Dumbo publisher Melville House about their new imprint, Melville International Crime. MIC represents the publisher’s latest venture to expand their existing catalog of fiction in translation, but although Melville House has int [...]


    6. One Man, One Murder was another ebook I was asked to review by the kind folks at Melville House Publishing (the same publishing house that published the excellent Death and the Penguin). This book is translated from the German and is the third in a series starring Kemal Kayankaya. (It works perfectly as a standalone book though.) Kemal is a private investigator in Frankfurt, Germany and his latest case is to find out who kidnapped Sri Dao, a Thai girl whose visa has run out.Kemal, who is of Turk [...]


    7. Racial problems are not just endemic to the United States. Germany, it would appear, has its own problems. Jakob Arjouni is a new German mystery writer who has been variously described as the successor to Raymond Chandler and Ross Mac- Donald. While I would not go that far, perhaps, his detective, of Turkish extraction but German citizenship, does show many of the elements characteristic of the “hard-boiled” detective. In this story, Kemal Kayankaya is hired to find Sri Dao, an immigrant fro [...]


    8. I must be over hard boiled PIs. Admittedly, this was a chance from the norm - set in Frankfurt with a Turkish/German detective Kemal Kayankaya solving crimes. His character is street-wise dealing with the everyday racism of the country but even that wasn't enough for me to get interested.


    9. I'm enjoying this series - it features a wise-cracking Turkish PI living in Frankfurt, Germany, although he could be a character from a Raymond Chandler novel. This was a pretty straight forward who dun it. A couple surprises, interesting characters and a great rainy Sunday read.


    10. Tough, hard drinking, smoking private eye, hard nosed criminals, corrupt cop and seedy surroundings. Frankfurt underbelly in all of its raunchiness. By the way, the translation that I have is entitled, One Death To Die.


    11. One of four books from my brother in law for Christmas. This started off slow, but I found myself at the end not being able to put it down. Good twist, that kept me to the end. Easy read and can be done in a day.





    12. I love the Turkish detective and his sarcasm. He's mistaken for an immigrant in Frankfurt, but he's actually a German investigating a case about immigrants.


    13. not great writing and not really compelling as noir, but fun and sometimes funny and a really interesting insight into racism and racial tension in germany in the 90s.
