Great Series>> Berlin Noir a detective story set in Nazi Germany. Very interesting concept, setting and Characters. Captures the atmosphere and dread of pre-war Germany told through the hard boiled mind of Bernie Guthrie former policeman turned detective. Really very good historical fiction that is going to be made into an HBO series. Great Stuff !!!! 420

A terrific setting for a crime novel. Hard to ignore the events that will soon overtake all the characters. Although the progression of the story was interesting, I disliked its conclusion.

It is very difficult to write hard boiled detective fiction with the snap and wit of Hammett or Chandler, but Philip Kerr manages to accomplish this against the backdrop of pre-war Berlin with an ex-cop PI in the mould of Sam Spade. The writing is excellent (and frequently funny), the story moves briskly, and you learn about what it was like to live day-to-day in Germany under the Nazis. Highly recommended.
