Shed clean of such degenerates But this time the girl's father runs Berlin's foremost criminal ring and he's prepared to go to extreme lengths to find his daughter's killerThen a second series of murders begins of crippled wartime veterans who beg in the city's streets It seems that someone is determined to clean up Berlin of anyone less than perfect The voice of Nazism is becoming a roar that threatens to drown out all others But not Bernie Gunther Set in 1928 during the Weimar Republic this features a younger innocent less cynical Bernie Gunther who has just joined the murder suad in Berlin and is on the trail of not one but two serial killers one targeting prostitutes the other cleaning the streets of beggingwounded war veteransFor me this has the strengths and weaknesses of the other books in this series for one the story is overlong bloated with filler Kerr is never one to leave any research unused so there are endless descriptions of the precise route that Bernie takes every time he leaves the housepolice building he can t pick up a reichsmark note without lecturing us on the man whose portrait is on the note even though he s never heard of him and it s irrelevant anywayIt s also notable that many men including Bernie seem to suddenly be feminists I wonder if this is Kerr s response to how some readers took Bernie s rampant sexism in the previous books It might have been distasteful but was probably historically realistic Now we have Bernie s boss in his plummy almost thespian voice saying I keep telling our leaders that if we did to support eual pay for women we could solve the problem of prostitution overnight Another male character Mussolini has ended women s rights in Italy on the same day my own country has lowered the age of women voting HaFor all that these books are excellent on recreating atmosphere here the decadent febrile atmosphere of Berlin when the wounds and humiliations of WW1 are still current and the country is heading towards a Nazi power grab Anti semitism is rife women with jobs are forced to turn to prostitution to supplement their income inflation is on the rise there is corruption in public life and crime gangs and
