    1. Pre-war Japan. A deranged artist called Heikichi Umezawa claims to be possessed by the Devil. He plans one final masterwork: the creation of Azoth, the supreme woman. How to make her? Chop up the bodies of his six daughters, selecting their most perfect parts, and stitching the pieces together into a whole. But before he can begin, he’s brutally murdered. A few days later the six daughters are also killed and their bodies chopped up, per Umezawa’s plan. Who killed Umezawa? Who killed the six [...]


    2. This novel is being released under the new ‘Pushkin Vertigo’ imprint – which aims to re-release international crime classics written in the years between the 1920’s and 1970’s. “The Tokyo Zodiac Murders,” is the first of over two dozen novels featuring Kiyoshi Mitarai and is written in the popular Japanese Honkaku subgenre of mysteries; very much focused on plotting and clues and where the reader is drawn into participating in solving the crime before the detective. In some ways, t [...]


    3. This is my second novel where the author challenge readers explicitly to guess the culprit. The first one is The Egyptian Cross Mystery. And coincidentally this novel is my first Soji Shimada's novel that I've ever read. After read this novel, I wish there are other Soji Shimada's novel translated into English.Highly recommended for readers who want to guess the culprit. Although I found some minor clues seems useful if the reader knows pop-culture of Japanese at mid 1930 era, but the essence of [...]


    4. 4 saoTruyện hấp dẫn, tình tiết ly kỳ nhưng nói về điểm không thích thì cũng không ít: đoạn đầu đọc khá chán, khô khan, hơi nhiều chi tiết và nhân vật (mà thật ra cũng không đóng vai trò gì quan trọng cho lắm ngoài làm cho sách rối rắm thêm và tốn nhiều thời gian đọc.)Đoạn điều tra cũng khá hay, nhưng kết thúc làm mình hơi thất vọng. Một phần vì mình đã biết sơ bí mật của nó thông qua [...]


    5. Mutilasi korban ditemukan di enam tempat berbeda dengan metode yang membingungkan. Dan, di awalan saya sudah dibuat pusing mencerna segala keterkaitan zodiac, unsur alkali korban-korban yang akan dirancang sebagai karya 'sempurna' bernama Azoth.Berlanjut dengan bagian analisa kasus tak terpecahkan #TheTokyoZodiacMurders antara Kiyoshi dan Kazumi. Bagian yang kusuka dari novel terbitan asli tahun 1987. Bab ini mengajak pembacanya ikut tebak-tebak metode dan cara pembunuh merealisasikan mutilasi d [...]


    6. Вчера приключих "Зодиакалните убийства" и това което мога да кажа е - УАУ! Макар да почна малко трудно, заради ситния шрифт и форматирането, мистерията не ме пусна до последната страничка. Приятно се изненадах от предизвикателствата, които Шимада Соджи ми предостави, като то [...]


    7. When Raymond Chandler wrote his somewhat disparaging essay on mystery novels, perhaps he hadn't been exposed to works by writers such as Shimada.For the ingenuity, meta jabs and the evocation of a bygone era where 'crime solving' was not all CSI and procedurals, 5 stars. It's just absolutely riveting and this must fall under Poirot's favourite kind of case, one that's primarily concerned with imagination and analysis, for all the fresh clues had been set in print articles, unavailable for furthe [...]


    8. Practically unreadable - the first part is a sick piece of murderous misogyny, the rest - a too-long conversation between two people trying to solve a closed-room murder mystery 40 years after the fact, by meticulously dismantling inch after inch of the technical details of the murder. This you cannot possibly follow unless you have a phenomenal memory and an unlikely level of tolerance for boredom. Sorry, quitting now, before it's too late and I drown in an ocean of mind-numbing technicalities. [...]


    9. The author Soji Shimada, has been known to readers as The King Of Dismemberment in the realm of Japanese crime/detective novels, it is his first long detective novel and it is damn impressive (the story has its flaws, but I'm still impressed).I look forward to re-read this book some day.


    10. I am reading this for "Locked Room Mystery": The Tokyo Zodiac Murders by Soji Shimada. This apparently is a locked room mystery novel that has been getting rave reviews. Wow all I have to say is that this book was great. More than anything I love clever books like this, and this was definitely very clever. I honestly was a bit worried for a couple of minutes that maybe I wouldn't be able to get the book since the setting is in Japan. But wow the author Soji Shimada is able to pretty much show yo [...]


    11. I love how the author actually challenge the readers to find the killer. It was very uncertain, unknown suspects and complicated case--not just one, but three different venue and style. That whiny and impatient Kazumi and seriously too secretive Kiyoshi embarking on a journey to find the culprit just because of a letter by the late Bunjiro Takegoshi. A very exceptional mystery--who and how until the last chapter making me so nervous and as impatient as Kazumi. It was odd at some points but lovin [...]


    12. Baca buku ini serasa kayak baca versi novel dari komik Detektif Conan. Atau kayak baca novel Sherlock Holmes versi Jepang, lengkap dengan Dr.Watson versinya sendiri. And since I'm a very huge fan of that kinda story, rasanya jadi kayak nemu harta karun deh, heheheh.Jadi novel ini menceritakan tentang kasus misterius dan sensasional yang terjadi 40 tahun sebelum 'masa kini' dalam novel, yang settingnya sendiri sekitar tahun 70an. Kenapa sensasional? Dan kenapa juga misterius? Karena oh karena, ka [...]


    13. Oh my! This is probably the best mystery novel I've read all year -- it is the kind of book that I hope to find every time I pick up a new mystery. I do have to admit to a fondness for Japanese authors, especially mystery writers, and this particular book is an example of why. I have to find other works by this author in translation if they exist. I could NOT put this book down at all once I started.The story begins some time back in the 1930s, and its focal point is a bizarre case known as the [...]


    14. Un must per gli amanti di camere chiuse, indizi, enigmi, tabelle, piantine. Una vera sfida al lettore, con l'autore che, stile Ellery Queen, per ben due volte interrompe la narrazione per chiamarci in causa. Al secondo messaggio dell'autore, pag. 257, avevo già capito chi era il colpevole, soprattutto grazie alla domanda posta da Shimada. Un indizio che fra l'altro poi non viene nemmeno spiegato nella narrazione, probabilmente perché a un giapponese sarebbe apparso fin troppo ovvio. Più compl [...]


    15. Một câu chuyện hết sức nhạt nhẽo. Mình thật không hiểu lý do vì sao nó nổi tiếng và là best-seller.Tiền đề của vụ án, với câu chuyện về Azoth nghe khá hấp dẫn. Nhưng câu chuyện có quá nhiều chi tiết thừa, quá nhiều nhân vật không cần thiết. Tác giả để nhân vật mất rất nhiều thời gian loanh quanh lạc lối, rồi cuối cùng chỉ mất 2 tiếng đồng hồ để giải quyết bí ẩn 40 năm. Phi lý [...]


    16. If you can make it through the exceedingly dry first third of this puzzler, the rest of this book is a real treat. I did figure "who dunnit" and more or less how before the big reveal but that did not in any way lessen my pleasure in this clever mystery. Bonus points for setting the much of the latter two-thirds of the book in picturesque Kyoto. Recommended for those who like old-fashioned locked room mysteries.


    17. Ranked #3 in the 2012 Tozai Mystery List (en.mpedia/wiki/Tozai), this book is extremely popular in Japan. It is a locked-room mystery (in part) and a logic-puzzlemwhere ALL the clues are given to the reader in advance. I found it rather dry and not terribly interesting.


    18. Chưa xem Kindaichi :vVẻ huyền bí của chiêm tinh học và thiên văn học mang đến sự hấp dẫn kì lạ cho những vụ án mạng trong quyển sách này.

    20. Huaaaahhhh horeeeeee Akhirnya bisa kelar juga *SujudSyukur* #NARIPERUTMembeli buku ini tanpa melihat reviewnya di . Ini buku terjemahan dan belum banyak goodreaders indonesia yang baca. Alhamdulillah tidak mengecewakan. Jadi ceritanya nih tentang detektif gitu. Mirip Sherlock Holmes kalo boleh saya bilang. Saya pribadi memang penyuka buku jenis ini. Kisah-kisah detektif itu ending dan ceritanya nggak bisa ketebak, that's why I like it!Konon kabarnya Pembunuhan Zodiac Tokyo ini kisah nyata. Saya [...]


    21. This story is impressive, considering it was first published in 1987 and is still enjoyable to read after more than 20 years has passed. At first I thought this is a murder/thriller story, but apparently it's more a murder-mystery, and it gives me more curiosity than thrill.Apart from the terrific storyline, I find the abundance of facts stated in the story is kind of annoying, but I understand that it is necessary for the readers to have enough (well, maybe too much) information to be able to s [...]


    22. Отделни моменти от тази история са добре известни на почитателите на жанра - имам предвид предизвикателствата със "заключената отвътре врата". Тук така популярният Едогава Ранпо наистина е изиграл голяма роля. Други моменти за много хора ще изглеждат новиБих дала на издат [...]


    23. The Tokyo Zodiac Murders starts off with a “last will and testament” written by Heikichi Umezawa in 1936. In this document, he detailed his belief that he is possessed and how he came to the realization that killing six of his daughters and nieces would solve his problems. Using their zodiac signs as a guide, he’d take one body part from each young woman and construct Azoth, the perfect woman. The story then fast forwards to about 40 years later. Kazumi, a mystery fan, is describing the fa [...]


    24. From Pushkin Vertigo and published originally in 1981 this is a classic old-fashioned murder mystery in one sense, but in another something quite refreshing, clever and innovative. With about a quarter of the book left, Shimada writes,Gentle Reader, Unusual as it may be for the author to intrude into the proceedings like this, there is something I should like to say at this point. All of the information required to solve the mystery is now in your hands, and , in fact, the crucial hint has been [...]


    25. Setelah Kudo, Hattori dan Kindaichi, Jepang kembali menelurkan seorang detektif muda amatir berbakat. Kiyoshi Mitarai, seorang astrolog dan peramal, adalah nama dari detektif tersebut. Mitarai kali ini bersama his-dr.Watson berusaha mengungkap kasus pembunuhan yang terjadi sekitar 40 tahun lalu, sekitar tahun 1930-an, sebuah kasus pembunuhan yang terkenal dengan nama Pembunuhan Zodiak Tokyo. Berbeda dengan detektif-detektif di atas, Mitarai ini muncul dalam bentuk novel, bukan komik, sehingga di [...]


    26. Honkaku is a subgenre of Japanese Crime Fiction that came into being sometime in the early 1920's. The original definition was "a detective story that mainly focuses on the process of a criminal investigation and values the entertainment derived from pure logical reasoning". The term was coined to clearly differentiate Honkaku mystery fiction from other subgenres and it was used for both local and Western writers, although a distinct Japanese form became increasingly common in the 1950's.Adding [...]


    27. The story starts in 1936 Japan. Heikichi Umezawa is an artist who is literally surrounded by women. He lives with his second wife Masako, two of her daughters (Akiko and Tomoko), his daughter by his first wife (Tokiko), his daughter by Masako (Yukiko), and his two nieces, Reiko and Nobuyo. Masako's other daughter, Kazue, who is divorced, lives on her own. None of them realizes just how deranged Heikichi has become. He fantasizes about creating the perfect women, Azoth - with the bodies of his da [...]


    28. It was really charming. Not only the mystery but the detective itself. I'm a fan of suspense novel but not detective novel. And officially this novel is the first detective novel I've ever finished. It tells about the death of a loner artist, and six women from his family (his four daughters and two nieces).The story starts with the last will of an artist named Heikichi Umezawa. In his last will he wrote about his obsession of creating a perfect woman. There, in his last will, he explained that [...]


    29. Little Aya story: I met this book because a little convo that I had from my senior, Prabowo Adi. He reads books a lot and his reading preference mesmerized me. So, I was like, "may I borrow one of your books? Anything. Just surprise me". Then boom, he came with this one. I was expected an English book, but when I saw the cover I was like "okay, wicked" (YOU HAVE TO SEE THE BAHASA COVER OF THIS BOOK #coverbuybooks lol). So I started at September 17 and finished at October 5. Almost three weeks??? [...]


    30. Nghe đồn đây là cuốn nhập môn của trinh thám Nhật nên cũng quyết tâm đọc lắm. Đọc rồi mới thấy nó hay thật, quả đúng như lời đồn (tin đồn cũng dựa trên 1 phần sự thật, mặc dù ít nhiều bị bóp méo nhé!)Trước giờ không có ấn tượng tốt lắm với tiểu thuyết của Nhật, nhưng chắc là mình ăn phải gió gì mới đọc trúng những cuốn như vậy, với lại cũng học được bài học đừ [...]
