    1 thought on “7 Days”

    1. I stayed up really late to finish this one. Towards the end it was absolutely impossible to put down because the need to discover who the sniper was became overwhelming.Deon Meyer is a brilliant author and I really wish I remembered enough of the Afrikaans I once knew to be able to read his books in their original language. As it is in translation they create such a good picture of South Africa as it really is. In this, the third in the Benny Griessel series, he writes a very strong police proce [...]

    2. I FALCHILo stesso protagonista di ‘Cobra’, che era l’avventura numero quattro, e questa è quella precedente, la numero tre: un capitano di una squadra d’eccellenza della polizia di Città del Capo, gli Hawks, i Falchi, che piombano sui casi da risolvere. Il caso in questione è un omicidio eccellente, una donna avvocato, bella e seducente, molto lanciata nella sua professione.Il nostro capitano, Bennie Griessel, è un ex alcolista e sono duecentotrentatre giorni che ha iniziato la disin [...]

    3. This is so much more than just a crime novel; it also gives a glimpse of South African society in the present time. I enjoyed the wide variety of interesting and realistic characters and all the interactions between them. Meyer is very successful at showing the animosities between the different race groups, who in spite of their prejudices and dislikes try so hard to cooperate and get along with each other. I love the way he alternates between Afrikaans and English; reflecting the way South Afri [...]

    4. I bought this book during a mammoth sale this spring. Like most of the books bought then, it was collecting dust on my shelf for a considerable amount of time. Unlike the others, I actually picked it up the same year I bought it. Now that I have read it, I wonder what took me so long. Even before the sale, I had staked out Deon Meyer as an author I would eventually read. As soon as I started reading, I knew I had hit the jackpot. This is definitely one of the ten best books I have read this year [...]

    5. Wat is nou lekkerder as om langs die swembad te le, waartlemoen te eet en Deon Meyer te lees?“Ek is Bennie Griesel. Ek is ‘n alkoholis. ‘n Man wat ‘n doos van himself maak. Gereeld. ‘n Old school-polisieman wat te min geslaap het”Arme Bennie ‘n week van hel, by die werk en in sy persoonlike lewe. Die boek beeld die spanning tussen die lands politiek, interne polisie politiek en die media so goed uit dat ek dit kan vergewe dat die storie so bietjie stadig vir my begin het.Ek begin o [...]

    6. Not many writers inspire me to pull an all-nighter, but Deon Meyer is in that category. His newest Bennie Griessel novel is a richly rewarding read: a complex plot, believable characters and a stunning finale. Worth sacrificing some sleep for this excitement!Deon Meyer se nuutste Bennie Griessel-roman maak dit heeltemal die moeite werd om 'n nag se slaap daarvoor op te gee. 'n Pakkende, boeiende verhaal vol geloofwaardige karakters vir wie 'n mens meer en meer omgee. Dis Meyer se negende roman, [...]

    7. Deon Meyer writes books that so beautifully reflect the political and social climate of South Africa. But he does so in books that are so ENJOYABLE to read. No racial angst, no social apologism - just really good detective novels.In "7 Days" we meet up with flawed police detective Benny Griessel again, not to mention the fiery, irritable Captain Mbali Kaleni. Over a period of seven days, Griessel will race the clock to solve the homicide of a beautiful young lawyer, while Kaleni will bicker and [...]

    8. Deon Meyer is a story teller. His descriptions of South African life and philosophy are well described in "Seven Days."The story begins when someone is accusing the police department of covering up the murder of Henneke Sloet, an attractive attorney who was stabbed to death in her luxury apartment.With the delay in investigations, a sniper begins shooting policemen. The sniper sends emails quoting the bible and stating that he will continue to shoot police officers until they arrest the person w [...]

    9. Detective Bennie Griessel returns in this allegedly intense thriller. A woman lawyer was murdered and now a mysterious sniper is stalking the police for their incompetence in finding the murderer or their perceived collusion in protecting the politically connected murderer. Bennie is called in for a fresh look even though his personal life is in chaos as he courts an alcoholic celebrity/singer. I had a hard time engaging with the plot and wasn't connecting with all the South African cultural all [...]

    10. I enjoyed this Deon Meyer thriller. He gives an insight into African culture. I have two more to read to finish the series.

    11. I am a big Deon Meyer fan, and as always enjoyed hiw work. The pace is much slower than previous titles, but keeps you guessing until the last page. I also love his characters

    12. Benny Griessel has been transferred to the well known police unit, The Hawks in Deon Meyer's newest installment. He is certainly put to the test both professionally and personally in this book. Professionally he is leading an investigation into the murder case of a young lady lawyer (Hanneke Sloet) who was found stabbed in her flat. The case which had lead to a cold trail has been challenged by an unknown individual who has started sending email threats to the SAPS top brass and large newspapers [...]

    13. What impresses me most about Deon Meyer's books is how he combines a really good detective story with interesting and complex characters to produce a really memorable story. Reading the audio version is particularly great because you get the accents of the various characters vividly portrayed, and this adds to the authenticity of the setting. As a South African, I really enjoy reading about Cape Town and its people because they are so familiar. Meyer depicts them with affection and raw honesty, [...]

    14. '7 dagen' is een heerlijk boek om te lezen, in de typische Deon Meyer-stijl. Veel en interessante personages, ogenschijnlijk wat rommelig maar per saldo klopt alles, informatie over de Zuid-Afrikaanse cultuur en maatschappij, een boeiend verhaal.Er spelen twee zaken:1. De moord op advocate Hanneke Sloet.2. Per e-mail aangekondigde aanslagen op politiemensen. Bennie Griessel wordt op zaak 1 gezet, Mbali Kaleni op zaak 2. Bennies privéperikelen lopen dwars door het onderzoek heen. Hij heeft het m [...]

    15. This is a good book, but made a bit more cumbersome for me due to the prolific use of South African language requiring frequent flipping to the glossary located at the back of the book. This notwithstanding, the plot is fairly complex and contains enough twists to keep the reader turning pages. I found the pace to be inconsistent-- too slow at times and just when I felt bogged down, the story took off like a rocket. As for a flawed, foreign detective series, this is good, but not as compelling a [...]

    16. Hmm, I expected more. It was intriguing and I love CSI/Police/Investigative stories. The characters are relatable -I like that, but it feels like something is missing. Just cannot put my finger on it. Besides this, I enjoyed it.

    17. Brilliant, as expected from Deon Meyer. It follows on 13 Hours, with many of the same characters and similar settings in Cape Town. The pace is frantic, the story well-written, the characters believable and multi-dimensional. i LOVED it!

    18. Deon Meyer has fast become one of my favourite authors. For an ex-pat like myself Deon brings to life, an ever-changing world that once was my home, in a way that I can completely relate to. I AM going to buy all the books he has published!

    19. Brilliant, and the Afrikaans version is manageable for second language speakers. Gripping page-turner, right to the end

    20. A fun Bennie Greissel suspense police book. Bennie has to find the killer of a young female lawyer before an outraged anonymous threatener continues to kill or maim police officers. Bennie has his usual angst and his usual amusing and sometimes cynical observations about human nature. As usual, his private and family life are in flux and he is full of self-doubt.

    21. It took me a while to finish this book, but because my life has been busy not because the book was boring. As usual, I struggled somewhat with the South African language, culture, and history but still enjoyed the book.

    22. Dans la catégorie “romans policiers” Deon Meyer est pour moi un roi incontesté qui me permet de mieux connaître l’Afrique du Sud tout en me divertissant.

    23. Wat mij betreft duidelijk minder goed en minder strak gecomponeerd dan de andere Benny Griessels, mijn gedachten dwaalden vaak af.

    24. Really professional , competent, skillfully- told intriguing story as per usual from this author. Excellent characterisation as well. Always enjoy his books. Love the lead character Benny.
