A good crime novel is not simply an intellectual exercise to determine whodunit or just a way to experience danger at a remote from the safety of your favorite armchair What I am often looking for is to explore the way people deal with extreme situations and the way their environment urban jungle or out of the woods small community is shaping their personality In this first installment of a new series the man who is both caught in a web of deceit and the product of his upbringing in Tamarack County Minnesota is Corcoran Cork O Connor Half Irish half Anishinaabe Indian Cork is the former Sheriff of smalltown Aurora Minnesota He s got problems enough in his own life mostly depression in the aftermath of a fatal conflict between white supremacists and Native Indians that not only cost him his job but also broke his marriage yet he is still ready and willing to help a neighbour whose teenage son goes missing in a snowstorm This freelance investigation leads Cork to the site of a suspect suicide the wealthiest and most influential man in town Judge Parrant has just blown his brains with a shotgun on the night of the storm The bodycount will soon increase as the death of the ruthless Parrant is bringing out in the open many unpleasant truths about the Tamarack County inhabitants both in the town of Aurora and in the Indian Reservation Greed corruption politics racism adultery graft and incompetence are all on the menu as Cork gets dragged in deeper and deeper into the criminal underworld with both his and his loved ones lives put in perilKrueger is excellent in keeping control of this complex plot and admirable in his action set pieces most of them involving chases over ice in SUV s snowbikes or skis but I have read a ton of competently written murder thrillers What really sets this new series apart is the attention to detail that gives authenticity to the people and to their frozen environment Krueger has also found a good balance between keeping a fast pace for the action and building up convincing and fallible characters The dynamic between Cork and his enstranged wife and children the dividing of his loyalties between his white and his redskin heritage the difficulties of reaching out to his children and the tentative attempts to restart his life after wallowing for years in guilt and misery are all reasons to consider Corcoran O Connor a strong enough personality to carry on his shoulders a multi volume series The same can be said for Aurora and the Tamarack County whose oddball inhabitants still hide a lot of secrets behind their closed doorsBy mentioning the frozen county the small town crime spree the lone wolf Sheriff with family troubles and the Native American angle I suppose it is obvious there are similarities between this series and the Walt Longmire books by Craig Johnson The best example I can give is that both writers are using a supernatural occurence to add spice and mystery to the proceedings Longmire communicates with the ghosts of ancient Crow and Cheyenne Indians Cork is chased by a creature of myth that may or may not be just an expression of him fighting his inner demons You don t know about the Windigo You ve lived in this country all your life and you don t know about the Windigo He shook his head as if that were a dreadful thing I have greatly enjoyed the Longmire adventures in Wyoming and look forward to going back to Absaroka County in 2016 but right now I believe Krueger makes a stronger argument for staying in Tamarack CountyHere are a couple of uotes that I believe illustrate the appeal The first is about the cross cultural approach and the native animist worldview Traditionally the Anishinaabe were a uiet people Before the whites came they lived in the silence of great woods and often than not the voices they heard were not human The wind spoke The water sang All sounds had purpose When an Anishinaabe approached the wigwam of another he respectfully made noise to announce his coming Thunder therefore was the respectful way of the storm in announcing its approach Spirit and purpose in all things For all creation respect The second is about the importance of the private life of the actors in any criminal investigation It was time for Cork to return to the bed in the guest room But he lingered beside this son who trusted him lay awake knowing there were monsters in the wind outside that his son s fear was not unjustified and that Stevie would have to face them alone someday There were people out there so cruel they would wound him for the pleasure of it dreadful circumstances no man in his worst imaginings could conjure disappointments so overwhelming they would crush his dreams like eggshells For a child like Stevie a child of special graces there would be such pain that Cork nearly wept in anticipation of it Against those monsters a father was powerless But against the simple terrors of the night he would do his best As for why I didn t splurge on all five stars view spoiler I have very few pet peeves when it comes to books I would actually read anything that falls into my hands but I really don t like it when a writer kills off a character that he spent almost the whole book developing in a way that makes the reader care about his or her fate I can understand with the analytic part of my mind why Molly the illicit new girlfriend of Cork had to die but with my empathy neurons I rebel at the blatant manipulation of my emotions Add to this the Hollywood style and predictable ending and I will say there is room for improvement in the future episodes hide spoiler
