The Thief

Nishimura is a seasoned pickpocket, weaving through Tokyo´s crowded streets, in search of potential targets. He has no family, no friends, no connections . . .

Suddenly, Nishimura finds himself caught in a web so tangled and intricate that even he might not be able to escape.

Taut, atmospheric and cool, The Thief will steal your breath away.

Zitat
A masterpiece in miniature ... wonderfully deft ... The Thief seems destined to become a landmark thriller. Daily Mail An intelligent, compelling and surprisingly moving tale, and highly recommended. -- Laura Wilson The Guardian Nakamura's achievement is to dovetail the various elements in the most adroit of fashions, producing a mesmeric piece of crime fiction and a cold-eyed meditation on modern society in which predatory human nature is accepted as the norm. And the author's fatalistic tone is rounded off with a devastatingly surprising end. The Independent Nakamura is a name to watch. Daily Mirror Japanese fiction is the new Scandicrime - and if The Thief is anything to go by, it is apparently just as dark and plentiful. A detective story told from the other side of the fence, brilliantly spun in the narrative voice of a skilled pickpocket. The Pulse Beautifully written and elegantly crafted. The Lady A psychological thriller that will grip your imagination from the very first page. Crime Ficton Lover A meditation on what it is like to be alone and on the nature of fate and free will, and featuring a lead character who would look at home in a 19th century Russian novel.' Big Issue The Thief is a swift piece of crime noir, surprisingly light on grit but weighted by existential dread. It's simple and utterly compelling - great beach reading for the deeply cynical. If you crossed Michael Connelly and Camus and translated it from Japanese. Grantland Nakamura is one of the most award-winning young guns of Japanese hard-boiled detective writing ... his award-winning novel The Thief does for Japanese fiction what John Woo did for Chinese film-making: bringing the darker side to a [western] audience. Daily Beast A mystery novel more in the tradition of Dostoevsky than Agatha Christie ... Fuminori Nakamura's noir transforms from a mood piece into a chilling philosophical thriller. Wall Street Journal It's the combination of thoughtful, noir-tinged character piece with punchy, well-plotted thriller that puts The Thief ahead of the pack. Glasgow Herald
