Gereon Rath Mystery Series

Set in Berlin during the fading days of the Weimar Republic, just before the Nazi takeover, Volker Kutscher’s widely-acclaimed historical crime fiction features police inspector Gereon Rath, recently transferred from Cologne to Berlin after inadvertently killing a man. There he navigates the city’s underworld of sex, drug, and crime, while befriending Chief Inspector Wolter. “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) on the first installment of the international bestselling Gereon Rath Mystery Series, Babylon Berlin.
