    Die stille Kunst des Tötens und ein Killer, der seine Würde entdeckt Raeseng ist Killer von Beruf, seit ihn Old Raccoon als Kind bei sich aufnahm und ausbildete. Aufgewachsen an einem geheimen Rückzugsort in Seoul, einer Bibliothek voller alter Bücher, gehört er zur Killer-Elite Koreas. Denn Old Raccoon ist ein Plotter. Als Kopf der Organisation "Library of Dogs" hat er seit Jahrzehnten alle politisch gewollten Exekutionen in Korea geplant. Doch als die Macht der Diktatur schwindet, gerät auch der Einfluss der Plotter ins Wanken - und eine neue Generation beginnt, ihr eigenes tödliches Netzwerk aufzuziehen.

    English(English) AudioBook

    Un-su Kim / 김언수 / 2019 / literature > Korean Literature > Korean Fiction > 21st century

    A thriller like you've never read one before, from the hottest new voice in Korean fiction 'Kill Bill meets Murakami' D. B. John, author of Star of the North 'A work of literary genius' Karen Dionne, internationally bestselling author of Home 'I loved it!' M. W. Craven, author of The Puppet Show 'You'll be laughing out loud every five minutes' You-jeong Jeong, author of The Good Son 'A mash-up of Tarantino and Camus set in contemporary Seoul' Louisa Luna, author of Two Girls Down 'An incredible cast of characters' Le monde 'Smart but lightning fast' Brian Evenson, author of Last Days Plotters are just pawns like us. A request comes in and they draw up the plans. There's someone above them who tells them what to do. And above that person is another plotter telling them what to do. You think that if you go up there with a knife and stab the person at the very top, that'll fix everything. But no-one's there. It's just an empty chair. Reseng was raised by cantankerous Old Raccoon in the Library of Dogs. To anyone asking, it's just an ordinary library. To anyone in the know, it's a hub for Seoul's organised crime, and a place where contract killings are plotted and planned. So it's no surprise that Reseng has grown up to become one of the best hitmen in Seoul. He takes orders from the plotters, carries out his grim duties, and comforts himself afterwards with copious quantities of beer and his two cats, Desk and Lampshade. But after he takes pity on a target and lets her die how she chooses, he finds his every move is being watched. Is he finally about to fall victim to his own game? And why does that new female librarian at the library act so strangely? Is he looking for his enemies in all the wrong places? Could he be at the centre of a plot bigger than anything he's ever known? Source : https://lti.overdrive.com/media/A3C43015-A93F-41F6-AC85-CC5515461950

  • The Plotters
    English(English) AudioBook

    Un-su Kim / 김언수 / 2019 / literature > Korean Literature > Korean Fiction > 21st century

    Behind every assassination, there is an anonymous mastermind—a plotter—working in the shadows. Plotters quietly dictate the moves of the city's most dangerous criminals, but their existence is little more than legend. Just who are the plotters? And more important, what do they want? Reseng is an assassin. Raised by a cantankerous killer named Old Raccoon in the crime headquarters "The Library," Reseng never questioned anything: where to go, who to kill, or why his home was filled with books that no one ever read. But one day, Reseng steps out of line on a job, toppling a set of carefully calibrated plans. And when he uncovers an extraordinary scheme set into motion by an eccentric trio of young women—a convenience store clerk, her wheelchair-bound sister, and a cross-eyed librarian—Reseng will have to decide if he will remain a pawn or finally take control of the plot. Crackling with action and filled with unforgettable characters, The Plotters is a deeply entertaining thriller that soars with the soul, wit, and lyricism of real literary craft.

    Ким Онсу / 김언수 / 2019 / literature > Korean Literature > Korean Fiction > 21st century

    За каждым убийством стоит анонимный вдохновитель, планирующий его в деталях. Невидимые планировщики скрываются в густой тени, они дирижируют самыми громкими преступлениями, они направляют самых опасных убийц. Но существуют ли они? Или это лишь городской миф?..Рэсэн – киллер. Он вырос в Собачьей библиотеке под присмотром странного и страшного человека, которого все зовут Старый Енот. Рэсэн никогда не задавался вопросом, почему он убивает. Его истинная жизнь протекала внутри книг, там он укрывался от непонятного, искореженного мира. Но однажды Рэсэн переступил черту, нарушил главное правило своей профессии – не нарушать правила. И отныне перед ним два пути: либо быть убитым, либо изменить мир. Когда же ему попадаются три эксцентричные женщины – продавщица с дипломом врача, ее смешливая сестра в инвалидной коляске и косоглазая библиотекарша с голоском жаворонка, – задумавшие разрушить жестокий порядок вещей, Рэсэну ничего не остается, кроме как сделать выбор: так и остаться марионеткой в руках загадочных планировщиков или начать контролировать сюжет своей жизни.Искрящий от напряжения, полный ярких и необычных персонажей, по-восточному философский нуар-детектив Ким Онсу нежен, остроумен, лиричен и непредсказуем. В «Планировщиках» угадываются отголоски творчества Харуки Мураками, и в то же время роман близок к скандинавским детективам.Содержит нецензурную брань!
