I found the novels to be engaging, gripping and all those related literary buzzwords.
That is, unless you were unfortunate enough to be Jewish. Some are hilarious, but most are ridiculous, and there are far too many for my taste.
In the first book, the author seemed to be trying very hard to emulate Raymond Chandler. All in all, an absorbing read. A lot of people really like this book. And again, I would argue that the triolgie detail about Berlin is so compelling on its own merit, and rendered so vividly and memorably, that one tends to forgive any errors in plot or taste on the part of the author elsewhere.
More importantly, if you like Philip Marlowe, you’ll like Bernhard Gunther, a tough ex-cop with no illusions about human nature, an appetite for alcohol, a wisecrack for every rough situation–you get the idea. In a German Requiemhe drops a reference to the Thin Manand there are other such trilkgie and commonalities peppered throughout the books.

And the plot was so convoluted and the characters flew in and out I had to ask More Just finished reading the whole trilogy in a row, which was a little more hard-bitten verbiage than I was prepared for.
Philip Kerr was a British author. Also after reading about taking transport to Ferdinandstrasse via Alexanderstrasse after a detour to Neuenburgerstrasse just to get to Derfflingerstrasse, well I needed a schnapps- but I will get to the next novel ‘The Pale Criminal’ after a break with ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For peculiar Children’.
The last of the three takes place in Vienna just after the war, and it is very clear that denatizification is a pretty much a fiction. Impatient of her, I snatched her knickers down, pulling her onto the bed, where I prised her sleek, tanned thighs apart like an excited scholar opening a priceless book.
After reading the first three, I’m thinking of backing out.
Anyway, for a twenty cent investment I figured I couldn’t go far wrong in selecting the trio of books that apparently made Kerr’s literary reputation.
