Myter og Mysterier #3 Jack the Ripper
Titel: Jack The Ripper
Serie: Myter og Mysterier #3
Forfatter: Jesper W. Lindberg
Finished Reading: Februar 2020
This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
I efteråret 1888 krøb en ondskab frem fra skyggerne i det victorianske London, og en angst og en rædsel uden lige spredte sig over England.
Selv på den anden side af Den Engelske Kanal kunne man lugte blodet der ifølge aviserne farvede Londons gader røde.
Det fattige Whitechapel-distrikt i Østlondon udgjorde kulissen hvor en bestialsk morder dræbte og lemlæstede flere kvinder.
Vi kender ham endnu kun under hans kunstnernavn, Jack the Ripper. Verdens første moderne seriemorder.
Hvem var den ukendte morder?
Hvem var Jack the Ripper?
This book is currently only available in Danish!
Even though this is a series, they are readable independently and the other subjects in which the author has focused upon, hasn’t really piqued my interest. However, the mystery upon Jack the Ripper may have had quiet an impact on a lot of people. The information gained from this book is the same as if you google till your heart content. Getting it as a compilation like this, was quite nice. This is not a work of fiction with made-up characters nor a plot driven story, this is pure facts down to the last gory detail of one disturbed mind, Ripper.
I was entertained and it was nice how neutral Lindberg felt upon the entire read. I don’t think it’s suitable to younger readers, you’ll need a certain age before digging into this world since it’s not for the faint of hearts.
Language wise it was slightly difficult to understand certain sentences, which leads me to believe, that, this is not a children’s book, but for teens and older.
Great work and I’ll be sure to take a look at the other books!
