Apothecary Melchior and the ghost of Rataskaevu Street by Indrek Hargla( )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tallinn, 1419. What links the Keeper of the Tower, a prostitute and a Flemish painter to a haunted house on Rataskaevu Street? All three claim to have seen a ghost near the house, and each is found dead soon afterwards. Melchior Wakenstede, apothecary and assistant bailiff, is charged with unearthing the truth. With a cultivated sense for justice, Melchior investigates the deaths and attempts to find out whether, as the denizens of medieval Tallinn believe, ghosts can reap their revenge upon the living. When a powerful merchant dies, Melchior perceives a corporeal connection between this and the other deaths. As Melchior becomes embroiled in the conflicts and rivalries between religious orders, merchant guilds and Teutonic Knights, all vying with one another for control of the town, what he discovers is more incredible and more terrible than any ghost
Apothecary Melchior and the mystery of St Olaf's Church by Indrek Hargla( )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'Apothecary Melchior' series plunges the reader into fifteenth-century Tallinn when Estonia is at the edge of Christian lands and the last foothold before the East: a town of foreign merchants and engineers, dominated by the mighty castle of Toompea and the construction of St Olaf's Church, soon to become the tallest building in the world. Apothecary Melchior is a divisive figure in the town: respected for his arcane knowledge and scientific curiosity but also slightly feared for his mystical witchdoctor aura. When a mysterious murder occurs in the castle, Melchior is called in to help find the killer and reveals a talent for detection

La chronique de Tallinn : roman by Indrek Hargla( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in French and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En cet an 1432, les fastueux préparatifs de la Fête-Dieu occupent la guilde du Saint-Sacrement. Lorsqu'un moine découvre un vieux manuscrit, une chronique riche en révélations sur la cité de Tallinn, c'est un vif émoi qui se répand du monastère jusqu'à l'hospice Saint-Jean et sa léproserie. Pendaison et empoisonnement chez les dominicains, voilà de quoi sortir Melchior de sa torpeur. L'apothicaire a quelque peu délaissé l'art des remèdes depuis que sa fille est partie au couvent s'occuper du carré des simples. Son fils est en apprentissage au loin, en proie à d'autres tourments oui, l'amour, mais aussi un autre genre de confrérie secrète. Épaulé de la pressante dame Bertha, Melchior entreprend de faire éclater la vérité, malgré les lourds secrets d'alcôves et la charte qui lie entre eux les frères de guilde. Polar médiéval sensuel et envoûtant, voici Le Nom de la rose estonien".--Résumé de l'éditeur

L'énigme de Saint-Olav : roman by Indrek Hargla( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En Estonie au XVe siècle, la ville de Tallinn est divisée entre les hauteurs, repaire de l'Ordre des chevaliers teutoniques, et la ville basse où évolue, sous le regard des puissants, une population métissée - orfèvres, marchands, chefs de guilde... Mais lorsque l'on découvre, à la porte du monastère, le corps savamment décapité d'un haut responsable de l'Ordre, c'est tout un édifice hiérarchique qui menace de s'effondrer : il est urgent de dissiper l'atmosphère de complot qui trouble soudain la ville basse. Parce qu'il faut agir dans le plus grand secret, le bailli, représentant de l'autorité, fait appel à son ami Melchior, apothicaire réputé pour sa discrétion et son ingéniosité. Cet esprit libre, aidé par sa connaissance des corps et des âmes des habitants de Tallinn, s'avère un redoutable enquêteur. Dans un monde que gouvernent les superstitions et la peur, Melchior devra démêler une intrigue où les malédictions côtoient les haines ancestrales. Un polar médiéval noir, envoûtant. [4e de couv.]
