A fifteenth-century painting by a Flemish master is about to be auctioned when Julia, a young art restorer, discovers a peculiar inscription hidden in a corner: Who killed the knight? In the painting, the Duke of Flanders and his knight are locked in a game of chess, and a dark lady lurks mysteriously in the background. Julia is determined to solve the five-hundred-year-old murder, but as she begins to look for clues, several of her friends in the art world are brutally murdered in quick succession. Messages left with the bodies suggest a crucial connection between the chess game in the painting, the knight's murder, the sordid underside of the contemporary art world, and the latest deaths. Just when all of the players in the mystery seem to be pawns themselves, events race toward a shocking conclusion. A thriller like no other, The Flanders Panel presents a tantalizing puzzle for any connoisseur of mystery, chess, art, and history.  … (més)

    Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid de Douglas R. Hofstadter (P_S_Patrick)
    P_S_Patrick: Arturo Perez-Reverte has recieved inspiration for his excellent mystery thriller from Hofstadter's Godel Escher Bach, even without some of the chapter introduciton quotes, that much is clear. He uses the bewildering Escherian theme of worlds within a world, Godels incompleteness theorum is alluded to in the monologue of one character, and Bach is discussed in relevance to the mystery too, along with a few miscellaneous paradoxes which are also slipped in, in a similar spirit in which they permeate the more complex non-fictional work. Non-fiction readers who have enjoyed GEB should be amused by the Flanders panel, and I think they should enjoy it even if they do not often indulge themselves in reading fiction. It would be harder to recommend GEB to fans of the Flanders Panel, due to its sheer length, but if you were intrigued by the themes in the story then it should at least be worth finding GEB in a library and dipping into it.… (més)

Una restauradora de arte descubre una misteriosa inscripción bajo el barniz de un cuadro flamenco de Flandes, La partida de ajedrez, realizada por el propio autor. Tras un minucioso análisis de los personajes que aparecen en el cuadro, se llega a la conclusión de que este encierra un mensaje para quien sepa leerlo: se proyecta un asesinato. La restauradora, un anticuario homosexual amigo suyo, un historiador y un jugador de ajedrez unen sus esfuerzos para descifrar el enigma.

I liked the Club Dumas a great deal and was very much looking forward to reading The Flanders Panel. I must confess I like books more than painting or chess, but I came away so very much pleased with this book. A great story with strong characters and simply beautiful language. As one other commenter here noted, the translator (Margaret Jull Costa) did not stand in the way of the words. She did an excellent job and I savored every page of Pérez-Reverte's book.

Like the Club Dumas, I felt happy, and perhaps a little smug, by knowing some of the inside references the author made. Be it dealing with chess, the paintings, or references to old stories and myths, I was ever thankful for my classical education and my continued delight in those topics.

My biggest problem with this book was when I would finish it, i.e. in 2013 or 2014. It would have been great to end the year on such a wonderful book. But, I will take it as a good omen to start the year by completing this delightful novel. ( )

The Flanders Panel - Perez-Reverte

I did try to like this book. I understood that it was a mystery involving the restoration of a valuable piece of 15th century art. That’s a good description of a book that I should love. But this book is not really about the art restoration. It’s not even really about the secret message revealed in the underpainting when the restoration begins.

The mystery revolves around the esoteric rules of competitive chess, a chess game that exists in the painting, and a sinister chess game enacted by the killer. I don’t understand chess and the endless pages of chess moves meant nothing to me. The traditions, strategies and logic of chess were presented as a philosophical analogy for life. It was artificially contrived and numbingly boring.

There wasn’t a single likable character in this book. In one way or another, almost every character is involved in the sale of valuable artworks. It’s tedious to find that every personality is shallow, money grubbing, backbiting, and in most cases, promiscuous. Not a pleasant story. The ending didn’t even provide a sense of ‘justice done’ for the sake of closure. ( )
