Ganz und gar in Karls Stil kreierten die Parfumeure Christine Nagel und Serge Majoullier für Karls Eau de Parfum for Women eine elegante, grün-florale Komposition. Der Duft lebt von Kontrasten: er eröffnet mit prickelnd-frischer Limette, den samtiger Pfirsich umschmeichelt, bevor sich in der Herznote ein intensives Bouquet aus Rosen, makelloser Magnolie und Frangipani offenbart. In der Basisnote des Parfums zeigt sich einmal mehr die auch für Karls Fashion so typische Modernität: Moschus und überaus kraftvoll-dunkle, von Amber geprägte, holzige Nuancen verleihen dem Duft seine Signatur.
Für die Kopfnote von Karls Eau de Toilette for Men setzt Parfumeur Jean-Christophe Hérault ganz auf die aromatische Kraft von Farn. Zeitlos und gleichzeitig ultra-modern inszeniert der Duft desweiteren Lavendel und Mandarine, dazu knackfrische Apfelnuancen und Veilchenblätter. Sinnlich und voller Allure geben sich würzige Sandelholz-Nuancen und eine Melange aus Amber-Akkorden im Finale und verleihen dem Duft einen vibrierenden und eleganten Ausdruck.
Gritty detective Karl Kane is back in the gripping follow up to Bloodstorm. Young homeless women and drug addicts are being abducted before being brutally mutilated and murdered, and a city is held in a grip of unspeakable terror. The cops are unable - or unwilling - to apprehend the elusive serial killer, and corrupt politicians turn a seemingly blind and almost approving eye to the catalogue of murders. The perpetrator is cunning, wealthy and influential. More importantly, he has never once made a mistake in his grisly calling - until now. By abducting Katie, the young daughter of legendary private investigator Karl Kane, the killer has just made his first mistake, which could well turn out to be his last. Blaming himself for his daughter’s abduction, Karl Kane must now reach down to the darkest recesses of his troubled soul and mind to become as cunning and merciless as the killer - but even that may not be enough to penetrate the fortress-like lair where Karl suspects the killer keeps his victims. There is only one man capable of helping Kane attack the ‘dark place’, a man despised and hated by Detective Inspector Mark Wilson, but even that help becomes as elusive as any Karl will get from the cops. From the nail-biting beginning to the explosive ending, Karl Kane’s nightmarish journey forces upon him a decision that changes his life forever and forces him to look into the abyss of no return. 1.

´´The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.´´ (Karl Marx) It would be almost impossible to exaggerate the influence Karl Marx has had upon the world in the last 150 years. Marx was an influential historian, journalist, and economist who is widely considered one of the first social scientists, but he is best remembered for advocating socialism, particularly the brand that would take his name. As the father of Marxism, Marx predicted that capitalistic societies, ruled by a ´´dictatorship of the bourgeoisie´´, would eventually give way via class struggles to a ´´dictatorship of the proletariat´´ and eventually to a more stateless form of communism. The Communist Manifesto is in several respects a paradoxical document. A product of the Western European political struggles that culminated in the pan-European Revolutions of 1848, its greatest historical impact was nevertheless not felt until the following century, in countries far from Western Europe (Russia and China) that Marx and Engels would never have viewed as ripe for revolutionary activity. 1.

Karl Marx was one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of the 19th century. His ideas and theories exerted an almost unrivalled influence on 20th-century politics and history. Peter Thompson’s superb ebook tackles eight core questions, looking at Marx’s thoughts on religion, power and modernity - and how Marxism developed such a hold on socialist ideology. The How to Believe series of books explores the teachings, philosophies, and beliefs of major thinkers and religious texts. In a short, easy-to-access format, leading writers present new understandings of these perennially important ideas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Philip Rose.

The fifth book of Knausgaard´s powerful My Struggle series is written with tremendous force and sincerity. As a 19-year-old, Karl Ove moves to Bergen and invests all of himself in his writing. But his efforts get the opposite effect - he wants it so much that he gets writer´s block. At the same time, he sees his friends, one-by-one, publish their debuts. He suspects that he will never get anything published. Book Five is also a book about strong new friendships and a shattering love affair. Then one day, Karl Ove reaches two crucial points in his life: his father dies, and shortly thereafter, he completes his first novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edoardo Ballerini.

My Struggle: Book One introduces American listeners to the audacious, addictive, and profoundly surprising international literary sensation that is the provocative and brilliant six-volume autobiographical novel by Karl Ove Knausgaard. It has already been anointed a Proustian masterpiece and is the rare work of dazzling literary originality that is intensely, irresistibly readable. Unafraid of the big issues - death, love, art, fear - and yet committed to the intimate details of life as it is lived, My Struggle is an essential work of contemporary literature. 1.

In the second installment of Karl Ove Knausgaard´s monumental six-volume masterpiece, the character Karl Ove Knausgaard moves to Stockholm, where, having left his wife, he leads a solitary existence. He strikes up a deep friendship with another exiled Norwegian, a Nietzschean intellectual and boxing fanatic named Geir. He also tracks down Linda, whom he met at a writers´ workshop a few years earlier and who fascinated him deeply. My Struggle, book two, is at heart a love story - the story of Karl Ove falling in love with his second wife. But the novel also tells other stories: of becoming a father, of the turbulence of family life, of outrageously unsuccessful attempts at a family vacation, of the emotional strain of birthday parties for children, and of the daily frustrations, rhythms, and distractions of city life keeping him from (and filling) his novel. It is a brilliant work that emphatically delivers on the unlikely promise that hundreds of minutes later, listeners will be left breathlessly demanding more. 1. Language: English.
