Ein klassischer Kriminalroman, der als Hammetts (1894-1961) bester gilt. Einer wertvollen Skulptur wegen, eines Falken aus dem 16. Jh., müssen mindestens 3 Menschen sterben.

DNF, Got sick of the treatment of women (even for a book written in the 30s) ( )

This was a fun novel. The narrator was good. ( )

The Maltese Falcon is ridiculous. It's so cliche it's painful....and it's kind of fun. It's way easier to stomach once you realize that it wasn't cliche (probably)when it was written since so much of the formula probably comes from the recipe that Hammett cooked up.

The protagonist Sam Spade is over-the-top in so many ways and so much of the story is over-the-top and ridiculous, but it's fun. ( )

I have seen the movie but I'd never read the book so when it was offered up at a BookCrossing meetup I thought it was time I did. Having seen the movie though I had Humphrey Bogart in my mind's eye as I read it and I didn't think he quite captured the description Hammett gave of Sam Spade. To wit:
"Samuel Spade's jaw was long and bony, his chin a jutting v under the more flexible v of his mouth. His nostrils curved back to make another, smaller, v. His yell-grey eyes were horizontal. The v motif was picked up again by thickish brows rising outward from twin creases above a hooked nose, and his pale brown hair grew down--from high flat temples--in a point on his forehead. He looked rather pleasantly like a blond satan." For one thing, Bogart isn't blond; although the movies I've seen him in are black and white it's pretty clear that his hair is quite dark. And I don't get the v motif from looking at Bogart's face. Still, there's no doubt that Bogart captured the personality of Sam Spade as described by Hammett quite well.

The plot is so well-known now that I'm only going to say that Sam Spade gets involved with a motley crew of characters who connive with and against each other to get their hands on the figurine of a black bird that is supposedly worth a fortune. One of the crew is a beautiful woman with whom Spade falls in love. The problem is he can't believe a thing she tells him. Spade has other woman trouble in that the widow of his late partner want him to marry her now that her husband is out of the way. And perhaps Spade's secretary is another love interest. Combine all this with lots of cigarette smoking and alcohol drinking and you have the plot.

Hammett was definitely a master of the noir mystery. It's for good reason that this book is on the list of 1001 Books To Read Before You Die. ( )

[I]t would not surprise us one whit if Mr. Hammett should turn out to be the Great American Mystery Writer. . . . In short, "The Maltese Falcon" is the best one, outside the . . . polite classes, in Lord knows when.

If the locution "hard-boiled" had not already been coined it would be necessary to coin it now to describe the characters . . . .

Samuel Spades Unterkiefer war lang und knochig, sein Kinn ein scharf vorspringendes V unter dem ausdrucksvolleren V seines Mundes.

The boy spoke two words, the first a short guttural verb, the second 'you'.
"People lose teeth talking like that." Spade's voice was still amiable though his face had become wooden. "If you want to hang around you'll be polite."
The boy repeated his two words.
Spade by means of his grip on the Levantine's lapels turned him slowly and pushed him back until he was standing close in front of the chair he had lately occupied. A puzzled look replaced the look of pain in the lead-colored face. Then Spade smiled. The smile was gentle, even dreamy. His right shoulder raised a few inches. His bent right arm was driven up by the shoulder's lift. Fist, wrist, forearm, crooked elbow, and upper arm seemed all one rigid piece, with only the limber shoulder giving them motion. The fist struck Cairo's face...
"I don't know where that damned bird is. You don't. She does. How in hell are we going to get it if I don't play along with her?"
Cairo hesitated, said dubiously: "You have always, I must say, a smooth explanation ready."
Spade scowled. "What do you want me to do? Learn to stutter?"
‘Who killed Thursby?’

Spade said: ‘I don’t know.’

Bryan rubbed his black eyeglass-ribbon between thumb and fingers and said knowingly: ‘Perhaps you don’t, but you certainly could make an excellent guess.’

‘Maybe, but I wouldn’t.’

The District Attorney raised his eyebrows.

‘I wouldn’t,’ Spade repeated. He was serene. ‘My guess might be excellent or it might be crummy, but Mrs Spade didn’t raise any children dippy enough to make guesses in front of a District Attorney, an Assistant District Attorney, and a stenographer.’

‘Why shouldn’t you, if you’ve nothing to conceal?’

‘Everybody,’ Spade responded mildly, ‘has something to conceal.’

‘And you have – ?’

‘My guesses, for one thing.'
