Editorial Reviews

Review

"The first in a series that’s been wildly popular in Germany is an excellent police procedural that cleverly captures the dark and dangerous period of the Weimer Republic before it slides into the ultimate evil of Nazism."―Kirkus Reviews

"James Ellroy fans will welcome Kutscher’s first novel and series launch, a fast-paced blend of murder and corruption sent in 1929 Berlin. Kutscher keeps the surprises coming and doesn't flinch at making his lead morally compromised."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Volker Kutscher, who wrote the novels on which the series is based, has a similar disregard for the sanctity of his characters' lives as Thrones' George R. R. Martin." ―The Spectator (UK)

"Conjures up the dangerous decadence of the Weimar years, with blood on the Berlin streets and the Nazis lurking menacingly in the wings."―The Sunday Times (London)

"Gereon's inquiries drag him through the mire of Berlin's underworld and the chaos of the politics of the period. Riveting and atmospheric."―Library Journal

"Gripping evocative thriller set in Berlin's seedy underworld during the roaring Twenties. A massive hit in its native Germany, Volker Kutscher's series, centered on Detective Inspector Gereon Rath, is currently being filmed for television."―Mail on Sunday (London)

About the Author

Volker Kutscher was born in 1962. Before writing his first crime novel, he worked as the editor of a daily newspaper. Today he works as a writer in Cologne. Kutscher’s novels have been published in many countries and The Wet Fish is currently being adapted as a TV series under the title Babylon Berlin by Tom Tykwer (director of “Cloud Atlas” and “The International”) for ARD and Sky.
