It's just before New Year, and Frank, an overweight American tourist, has hired Kenji to take him on a guided tour of Tokyo's nightlife. But, Frank's behaviour is so odd that Kenji begins to entertain a horrible suspicion: his client may in fact have murderous desires. Although Kenji is far from innocent himself, he unwillingly descends with Frank into an inferno of evil, from which only his sixteen-year-old girlfriend, Jun, can possibly save him.

  1. Spännande och väldigt obehaglig bok!
    Samuel , 15 februari 2023

    Hittade den här boken tack vare en Youtube video med obehagliga böcker.

    Boken handlar om de två huvudkaraktärerna Frank och Kenji. Frank är en amerikansk turist som besöker Tokyos red light distrikt i sällskap med eskorten Kenji. Kenji visar runt Frank bland de olika barerna samtidigt som en rad mord inträffar i närområdet. Kenji börjar bli allt mer misstänksam och börjar snart tro att Frank är seriemördaren.

    Den här boken var för mig en helt perfekt rysare med lagom mycket... Läs hela recensionen

Recensioner i media

'A blistering portrait of contemporary Japan, its nihilism and decadence wrapped up within one of the most savage thrillers since The Silence of the Lambs' Kirkus Review 'Deft and fascinating ... A grisly tour of the darkness and confusion of the human mind' New York Times 'There is no shortage of terrors in this novel ... Atmosphere predominates, and the claustrophobia of the backstreets of Tokyo is intensely imagined' Daily Telegraph 'In the Miso Soup stays with the reader long after the book is finished and Murakami makes his readers as complicit as Kenji in their desire to understand why Frank is the way he is' Guardian

Övrig information

On a recent trip to Britain, bestselling author Haruki Murakami was asked who his favourite Japanese author was. He replied that it was his namesake, Ryu Murakami. Renaissance man for the postmodern age, Ryu Murakami has played drums for a rock group, made movies and hosted a TV talk show. Whilst he was still a student, his first novel Almost Transparent Blue was awarded Japan's most coveted literary prize and went on to sell over a million copies. Ralph McCarthy is the translator of 69 by Ryu Murakami and two collections of stories by Osamu Dazai.
