Om författaren

David John Moore Cornwell was born in Poole, Dorsetshire, England in 1931. He attended Bern University in Switzerland from 1948-49 and later completed a B.A. at Lincoln College, Oxford. He taught at Eton from 1956-58 and was a member of the British Foreign Service from 1959 to 1964. He writes visa mer espionage thrillers under the pseudonym John le Carré. The pseudonym was necessary when he began writing, in the early 1960s because, at that time, he held a diplomatic position with the British Foreign Office and was not allowed to publish under his own name. When his third book, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, became a worldwide bestseller in 1964, he left the foreign service to write full time. His other works include Call for the Dead; A Murder of Quality; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Honourable Schoolboy; and Smiley's People. He has received numerous awards for his writing, including the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America in 1986 and the Diamond Dagger from the Crime Writers Association in 1988. In 2011 he accepted the Goethe Medal. And in 2020, he accepted the Olof Palme Prize. Ten of his books have been adapted for television and motion pictures including The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, The Russia House, The Constant Gardener, A Most Wanted Man, and Our Kind of Traitor. Le Carré's memoir, The Pigeon Tunnel: Stories from my Life, became a New York Times bestseller in 2016. In 2019, he published a spy thriller, Agent Running in the Field. John Le Carré died on December 12, 2020 from pneumonia at the age of 89. (Bowker Author Biography) John le Carre was born in 1931. After attending the univesities of Berne and Oxford, he spent five years in the British Foreign Service. He's the author of eighteen novels, translated into twenty-five languages. He lives in England. (Publisher Provided) visa färre

Allmänna fakta



Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy LE??! i Folio Society Devotees (oktober 2023)
John e Carre - Smiley novels i British & Irish Crime Fiction (juli 2011)


John le Carrés första roman är en dramatiskt laddad thriller, skriven med den psykologiska insikt, suggestiva miljöskildring och förtätade spänning som kännetecknar den moderna spionromanens mästare.

Telefon till den döde är första boken om George Smiley - den stillsamme, till det yttre ganska oansenlige man som är brittiska underrättelsetjänstens skickligaste agent.

Fallet Fennan verkar vara ett rent rutinärende. Men den unge diplomaten skjuter sig på kvällen efter sitt första samtal med Smiley, som fått i uppdrag att kontrollera hans politiska lojalitet. Varför har Fennan då bett om ett nytt samtal, undrar Smiley, och varför har han beställt telefonväckning till nästa morgon? Är det verkligen självmord? Knappast, anser Smiley. Men vem har röjt Fennan ur vägen? Och varför? Och vad är det Fennans hustru försöker dölja?… (mer)

Justin Quayle, a British diplomat in Nairobi, Kenya, is told that his activist wife, Tessa, was killed while travelling with a doctor friend in a desolate region of Africa. Investigating on his own, Quayle discovers that her murder, reportedly committed by her friend, may have had more sinister roots.

Justin learns that Tessa had uncovered a corporate scandal involving medical experimentation in Africa. KVH (Karel Vita Hudson), a large pharmaceutical company working under the cover of AIDS tests and treatments, is testing a tuberculosis drug that has severe side effects. Rather than help the trial subjects and begin again with a new drug, KVH covered up the side effects and improved the drug only in anticipation of a massive multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis outbreak.

Justin travels the world, often under assumed identities, to reconstruct the circumstances leading to Tessa's murder. As he begins to piece together Tessa's final report on the fraudulent drug tests, he learns that the roots of the conspiracy stretch further than he could have imagined; to a German pharmawatch NGO, an African aid station, and, most disturbingly to him, corrupt civil servants in the British Foreign Office.

"Nattjänst" är en svidande skarp och kusligt aktuell skildring av de krafter i vår samtid som i det fördolda styr människors liv - och är beredda att offra dem. Starkt tränger Carré igenom den tunna, kultiverade ytan i de penningstinna skurkarnas värld och blottlägger råheten, girigheten och ondskan.

Barley Blair är en härjad och mycket törstig engelsk bokförläggare som en blöt natt utanför Moskva fått ta emot Sovjets viktigaste försvarshemligheter. Den som röjt dem för honom är toppfysikern Jakov. Varken brittiska underrättelsetjänsten eller CIA kan hysa något förtroende för Barley Blair men måste ändå få honom att ta förnyad kontakt med Jakov
