    Another great Gunther mystery

    I’ve read all the Bernie Gunther mysteries and this one is as good as any, rich in plot, character, place and era. Gunther hasn’t become the depressed, uber-sardonic individual of later years; he’s got demons but they battle with a (dwindling) sense of optimism as he tries to find results in his new job as a homicide detective. I’ve read countless mysteries over the decades and encountered a score of unforgettable lead detectives, but Gunther is the most real, most fascinating of them all. Philip Kerr’s death is a terrible loss.

    a copper to the end

    i found myself slowing down my reading,because I knew this is the last of the series. Alas I finished. Kerr takes us to the turmoil of Berlin in 1928. This is Bernie the clever dectective. This is also vintage Bernie the quick witted and ironic hero we see in the other books. It has some of the best and funny dialouge of the series. Kerr sends us warnings about todays trends to populism, and how quickly democracy can slide away. We are wise to heed the warnings that Bernie Gunther provides.

    Dangerous cops

    One of the best Bernie Gunther novels. Not as scary from a Nazi perspective as some others, but the Jewish threat is ever present. Surprise murderer here, which I did not see coming. And Bernie's romantic interludes are enjoyable, passionate and short lived. Well worth reading.
