Description
The first book in the bestselling German crime
series, coming to Netflix Australia in 2018
Berlin, 1929. Detective Inspector Rath was a
successful career officer in the Cologne Homicide
Division before a shooting incident in which
he inadvertently killed a man. He has been
transferred to the Vice Squad in Berlin, a job he
detests, even though he finds a new friend in his
boss, Chief Inspector Wolter. There is seething
unrest in the city and the Commissioner of Police
has ordered the Vice Squad to ruthlessly enforce
the ban on May Day demonstrations. The result is
catastrophic with many dead and injured, and a
state of emergency is declared in the Communist
strongholds of the city. When a car is hauled
out of Berlin s Landwehr Canal with a mutilated
corpse inside, the Commissioner decides to use
this mystery to divert the attention of press and
public from the casualties of the demonstrations.
The biggest problem is that the corpse cannot be
identified . . .
