There s a fine line between being lovably flawed and being a jerk when it comes to detectives secret agents and what have you Last time around, Bernard Gunther was in the former category You can t blame a guy for having a bleak outlook on life in late 1930s Berlin, and the misogynistic attitude was what it was In round two of Bernie s adventures, The Pale Criminal , I found him much harder to stomach It s not just the bedding of women during sex crimes investigations that got me, so much as his internal monologue of imagining himself between their thighs while they describe the last known whereabouts of their presumably dead children Likewise, the threat of the pink triangle was real I know, it s shocking that the Party wasn t progres ,.
I finally finished this novel and dare to say that it is without any doubt the worst of the Bernie Gunthers novels I have read so far, with two to go.

Berlin, 1938 Former detective turned PI Bernie G nther meets police chief Arthur Nebe under cover of darkness, Nebe gives him the heads up that Heydrich of the Gestapo wants him back at Kripo to undertake a delicate investigation but meanwhile he is retained by wealthy German woman Frau Lange, owner of a printing company Her son is gay and a blackmailer has acquired letters between him and This is book 2 in the Bernie Gunther saga It is 1936 and the dark cloud of National Socialism covers everything Bernie is still depressed over the disappearance of his secretary lover and he is trying to adjust to having a partner in his detective practice I had another argument with my boy Heinrich when I got back from the Zoo his partner mentions What was it this time He s only gone and joined the motorized Hitler Youth, that s all I shrugged He would have to have joined the regular Hitler Youth sooner or later The little swine didn t have to be in such a damned hurry to join, that s all He could have waited to be taken in, like the rest of the lads in his class Come on, look on the bright side They ll teach him how to drive and look after an engine They ll still turn him into a Nazi, of course, but at least he ll be a Nazi with a skill Black humor, black dee 2 Kerr , 4,3 5 8,6 10.
Berlin, 1938 the Nazis are firmly in power and we re moving menacingly towards Kristallnacht Gunther is faced with an intriguing double plot of gay blackmail and the serial murders of pretty Aryan girls But is there really a sex maniac ritual murderer on the loose or is something far sinister behind the cases Kerr has got some fascinating detail here especially on Nazi responses to psychotherapy and mental health but Gunther s rampant sexist commentary and creepy lechery is just tiresome and feels particularly inappropriate in a case involving fairly graphic sexualised violence against young women.
That said, having struggled a bit with the first book in this series, this feels far competent and I ve resigned myself to enjoying these books despite Gunter rather than because of him It s quite rare to find a writ I read this all in one day I repeat in Nazi Germany, Bernie Gunther would have been dead ten times by page 50 But I ll forgive Phillip Kerr, if only for the great sensory pleasure of immersing myself in the reality of his description He seems to know every neighborhood, every street, every boulevard, every music hall and restaurant and government building and whorehouse, the accents spoken by Germans from Nuremberg or Bavaria, and which Nazis were bad, or not so bad The depth of his knowledge, and his comfort level in writing about it, is truly astounding.
I have read a lot of Holocaust history, so I confess to a certain amount of guilt in reading these entertaining thrillers Still, I got chills as fictional Bernie Gunther sniffed around the edges of the catastrophe to come, later to be known as Kristallnacht It s quite magical, the way Kerr imagines ordinary people I thought I was done with reading the traditional hard boiled detective Perhaps I picked this up in a nostalgic mood I think it was Mark Lawson who talked about the three Ds of hard boiled detective fiction drink, depression and divorce Yes, it might be a truism that a lot of detectives in real life suffer from all of these, but it s been done to death in detective fiction I love the novels of Henning Mankell and Ian Rankin, whose detectives are similarly inflicted but recently I vowed not to read or write a detective with any D whatsoever.
So why did I pick up this novel and why did I like it I suppose it was the milieu that intrigued me Setting a crime novel in 1930s Nazi Germany does raise the stakes and the moral temperature The hero is your run of the mill hard boiled detective but it was fascinating reading about him trying to do his job whilst fighting prejudic At The Very Gates of HellDown these mean streets The genius of Kerr is that he takes the dark dreary Hardboiled detective Gunther and placed him not on the mean streets of Los Angeles, but in the midst of Hitler s Germany in 1938at the very gates of Hell, on the eve of Kristalnachtt In so doing, Kerr paints a picture of sadism, debauchery, and fear, that is uncanny You can feel how dark the very skies are becoming, how thick the air is, how twisted logic has become This book has Gunther rejoining the police force although not by choice and hunting for a serial killer and a web of blackmail Like all the books in this series, it is a terrific read, although the plot line is not as sure as that in the first book, March Violets, and appears to meander a little at times.
