WINNER OF THE CRIME WRITERS' ASSOCIATION DIAMOND DAGGER AWARD 2017NOW A MAJOR BBC DRAMAIt is a cold January morning and Shetland lies buried beneath a deep layer of snow. Trudging home, Fran Hunter's eye is drawn to a vivid splash of colour on the white ground, ravens circling above. It is the strangled body of her teenage neighbour Catherine Ross. As Fran opens her mouth to scream, the ravens continue their deadly dance ... The locals on the quiet island stubbornly focus their gaze on one man - loner and simpleton Magnus Tait. But when police insist on opening out the investigation a veil of suspicion and fear is thrown over the entire community. For the first time in years, Catherine's neighbours nervously lock their doors, whilst a killer lives on in their midst. Raven Black is a haunting, beautifully crafted crime story, and establishes Ann Cleeves as a major talent in psychological crime writing.PRAISE FOR RAVEN BLACK"A riveting read."

Readable but formulaic; whodunnit is fairly easy to work out through process of elimination and some basic acquaintance with the genre. Raven Black also felt curiously under-written when it came to capturing the landscape and distinctive nature of the Shetland Islands. The author, Ann Cleeves, has apparently spent several years living there but I'm not sure that I gained more feeling for the place than I would by just scrolling through a Wikipedia page about it.

I might still have continued on with the series—it being a miserable February during a pandemic, "readable but formulaic" isn't necessarily an indictment—but the most interesting thing about the lead detective, Jimmy Perez, was the fact that he is apparently the descendant of a shipwrecked member of the seventeenth-century Spanish Armada. (Centuries later, not only has the family name survived but Perez apparently looks "Mediterranean" enough for other people to remark on it: "wild black hair and a strong hooked nose, black eyebrows [...] From the Mediterranean perhaps, North Africa even." Now, I'm not a geneticist but I'm pretty sure that's not it works.) Giving your detective one unusual fact about themselves is not the same as giving them a personality. ( )

This is solidly engaging and suspenseful. The pace builds slowly to the denouement, but the plot kept me guessing. I will happily read more of these books in the series. ( )

I had started this awhile ago, but restarted it after having watched the wonderful SHETLAND teevee series. RAVEN BLACK has an awful lot in there focused on one girl who was a friend of a murdered girl. An awful lot of her thinking about an older guy, an awful lot of her thinking about her classmates, her mom, her dad, etc., etc. It is, basically, almost mind-numbingly painful. And the rest isn't all that good. Cleeves is not a great writer.

Twenty past one in the morning on New Year's Day. Magnus knew the time because of the fat clock, his mother's clock, which squatted on the shelf over the fire. In the corner the raven in the wicker cage muttered and croaked in its sleep. Magnus waited.
