Inspector Haritos called to the scene of a murder: the renowned TV journalist Janna has been killed in the broadcasting studio just as she was about to go on the air with some sensational news. Haritos's investigation sucks him deep into the nasty world of the Greek media. When Janna's successor also is murdered, Haritos steps up his investigation. He nearly gets suspended from his job because his theories make various important people uncomfortable. In the end, the killer he unmasks comes as a shocking surprise. The first of three novels featuring Inspector Haritos, Deadline in Athens exposes the corruption that has pervaded both private and public life in Greece since the fall of the military dictatorship, the advent of a democratic government, and the explosion of barely controlled private entrepreneurship

"Chief Inspector Haritos of the Athens CID has finally made time for a break from work. But when a minor earthquake causes his holiday beach to spit up a corpse, he finds there is no such thing as being off duty." "Back in heat- and smog-shrouded Athens, and shunning his wife's concerns for his ailing health, Haritos sets to work on the mystery of the unidentified body. Then he is assigned a second case. A well-known nightclub owner and entrepreneur has been murdered, and neither the victim's beautiful young wife, his estranged daughter or his junkie son seem keen to offer up any clues." "Haritos delves into the worlds of organised crime, football, and even market research in his hunt for the killers. But it seems there are many motives for keeping these crimes unsolved."--BOOK JACKET

2014. A Athènes, la survie quotidienne est de plus en plus difficile pour les citoyens appauvris et pour les immigrés harcelés. C'est alors qu'un tueur en série jette son dévolu sur des personnalités d'envergure issues de la génération de Polytechnique qui, après s'être rebellées contre la junte militaire, ont eu une carrière fulgurante. Le criminel reprend le célèbre slogan des insurgés de l'époque pour formuler sa revendication : "Pain, éducation, liberté". Qui se cache derrière ces meurtres ? Un membre de l'extrême droite ou un ancien gauchiste mû par le désir de vengeance ? Le commissaire Charitos, privé de son salaire depuis trois mois, tente avec sa ténacité habituelle de comprendre les mobiles du coupable. Pain, éducation, liberté est le troisième volet de la trilogie de la crise grecque, après Liquidations à la grecque (prix Le Point du Polar européen 2013) et Le Justicier d'Athènes

Finstere Zeiten zur Krise in Griechenland by Petros Markaris( Book )

Pocos autores como el griego Petros Markaris estan tan cualificados para analizar la crisis que desde hace anos azota a Grecia y que amenaza con derrumbar el proyecto de union europea. En estas paginas Markaris desentrana las causas de esta quiebra, la acelerada evolucion de la sociedad griega en las ultimas decadas, y el papel que sus anquilosadas y corruptas estructuras de poder desempenan en la actual debacle financiera. Indignado ante la cada vez mas precaria cotidianidad de tantos ciudadanos, castigados por medidas ciegas e injustas disenadas en Bruselas y Berlin, Markaris nos alerta de que esta no es una crisis mas, que en ella nos jugamos mucho mas que el dinero, y que solo volviendo a las raices del humanismo "inventado" precisamente en Grecia podremos dejar atras este "tiempo sombrio". / Markaris unravels the causes of the crisis in Greece and the European Union project risk to collapse. The precarious life of citizens, punished by actions designed in Brussels and Berlin, Markaris alerts us that more than money is at stake, and only turning back to the roots of humanism, we can get through this ""dark time""
