Descripción del producto

In BERLIN NOIR, Philip Kerr’s first three Bernie Gunther novels – MARCH VIOLETS, THE PALE CRIMINAL, A GERMAN REQUIEM --  are compiled in one volume, the perfect introduction to the “best crime series around today” (The Daily Beast).

Ex-policeman Bernie Gunther thought he'd seen everything on the streets of 1930s Berlin. But then he went freelance, and each case he tackled sucked him further into the grisly excesses of Nazi subculture. And even after the war, amidst the decayed, imperial splendour of Vienna, Bernie uncovered a legacy that made the wartime atrocities look lily-white in comparison...

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I am a WWII buff and like detective stories so seemed worth a look 27 de julio de 2016

I wandered into this author via some Amazon or Goodreads recommendations. I am a WWII buff and like detective stories so seemed worth a look. This was a 3 pack of the first 3 books in the series. March Violets, Pale Criminal and A German Requiem. Our hero is former police detective Bernie Gunther, now a private investigator. He is in the hard boiled, Sammy Spade, Philip Marlowe, Mike Hammer mode. He is well drawn, doesn't like the Nazi's but doesn't want to get killed or put in a concentration camp. These books really catch the vibe of pre-war and post-war Germany. Bernie has to confront various moral dilemmas as he tries to survive these crazy and oppressive times. Historical characters like Goering and Heydrich are involved in the first 2 books, but in a way that I found believable. Beautiful, but troubled women are in all three books true to this genre's form. The secondary characters are interesting as well. Bernie is a dogged investigator and it is a good read as he follows the evidence where it leads no matter how dangerous. March Violets takes place in 1936 around the time of the Berlin Olympics. A disappearance, and double murder draw him to the highest levels of the Nazi government. A Pale Criminal takes place in Berlin in 1938 and 1939 around Hitler's occupation of the Sudetenland. Life in Berlin continues to deteriorate as Bernie is pressed back into the police department to head up a team that tracks down a serial killer. A German Requiem takes place in post war Berlin and Vienna in 1947. Bernie is enlisted by the Russians to see if he can clear a colleague from the 2nd book of the murder of an American intelligence officer. This one had the most twists and turns and we find out a little bit of how Bernie survives the war without getting involved in the atrocities. These are dark, in the noir style, but there is plenty of humor as well. There is a bit of graphic violence, not too much though. I think that the first one, March Violets was my favorite, but I liked them all.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Hard-boiled Historical Crime Fiction at its best 14 de junio de 2015
Por Suncoast - Publicado en Amazon.com

This trilogy is a great introduction to the excellent Bernie Gunther series by Philip Kerr - one of the best hardboiled police/crime series I have read for a long time. It is extra special because the series is set with meticulously researched historical detail in Nazi Germany before and after the war and is seamlessly integrated with some of the key happenings and powerful personalities of that time.

Bernhard (Bernie) Gunther is a hard-boiled Berlin detective who served eleven years as a homicide detective in Kripo (Berlin's criminal police) and left in 1933 when the National Socialists started to purge the force of all non-party members. He becomes a private investigator and then is forced back to Kripo by the Nazis. After witnessing mass killings he fights on the Eastern Front and becomes a POW with the Russians.

Gunther was never a Nazi or a war criminal but went through the war at the front because opposing what was happening was too painful to contemplate. He is not averse to some brutality where necessary in his work, has a tough and rough sense of humour, is constantly cynical but while he is sometimes morally-compromised he has a pragmatic sense of right and wrong.

March Violets: A Bernie Gunther Novel, set in 1936, has Gunther investigating the murder and torching of the daughter and son-in-law of a powerful German steel magnate and an associated safe robbery. The investigation gets mixed up with Nazi issues and Bernie gets involved with Goering (in a cameo role) and Reinhard Heydrich, the prime architect of the Holocaust.

The Pale Criminal: A Bernie Gunther Novel, set in 1938, has Gunther forced back into Kripo by Heydrich to find a serial killer of Aryan teenage girls who are Nazi sympathisers.

A German Requiem: A Bernie Gunther Novel is set after the war in Berlin and mostly in occupied Vienna. Bernie is asked to help a former colleague and black marketeer accused of the murder of an American officer. In the process he gets dangerously involved with both the "Amis" and the "Ivans" in Cold War tensions and with some major war criminals.

Philip Kerr is a first class thriller author who can write heavily-plotted, hard-boiled and frequently violent crime novels seamlessly set against a fascinating background of Berlin before the war and Vienna after the war. This is wonderful stuff for a crime-fiction junkie like me who loves his doses of history with a crime-fiction background. This is the first time that I have read through a trilogy without a break and I really enjoyed all of the books - highly recommended. I am hooked on reading the rest of the series very soon.

These novels are on re-reading--among the best. The Chandler vision of LA is not only borrowed but returned with a gratuity. I wonder if there could be meeting between Marlowe and Gunther. Who would be the toughest?

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Superb post-war (early post-war) crime fiction. 27 de enero de 2013
Por Thad Brown - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
When a book has 100+ reviews on Amazon and averages out to 4.5 stars, there probably not a lot to add. This I will keep this short. This collection of three novels form the Bernie Gunther series is a great start for the series. You get a peek at the pre-war Nazi era, around the time of the 1934 Berlin Olympics. Then a look at some of the darker days in the middle of the war as Gunther winds up hauled back into the government against his will. Both books are also tight crime dramas with very bad bad guys and good guys who drink and smoke.

But for me the star of the series is 'A German Requiem,' set in 1947, with Berlin still filled with rubble (and to a lesser extent, rubles). In that third book, Gunther is convinced to head to Vienna on a case where he is trying to prove the innocence of a shady character in jail for murder and known as a pretty serious smuggler.

For me, as good as the crime part of the story are in that last book, the details about shortages, violence, literal rape and pillage by the invading Russian troops is brilliant. Pack that it with early post-war Vienna, one of the first squabbles in what would become the Cold War, and you have a really good book.

The comparisons to Raymond Chandler and other pulpy fiction to me are not that apt. Though Kerr writes in a classic crime novel form, he mops the floor with Chandler as a stylist and his stories are far more complex. Read these books on their own, enjoying them on their own terms, and leave your 40's and 50's Americans on their own.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great mystery, great writing, great dialogue. 6 de junio de 2011
Por John Capps - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
One of the blurbs on this book states that the writer, Phillip Kerr, is "in a league with John le Carre." Being a big Le Carre fan, I would have to agree. Almost a cross between Raymond Chandler and le Carre, actually. I was instantly hooked by his writing style. Here is just one small example: "There's only one thing that unnerves me more than the company of an ugly woman in the evening, and that's the company of the same ugly woman the following morning."

The dialogue is great and cracking as well without being too cliche: here part of the interrogation of our hero (Bernie Gunther) by a couple of Gestapo men, after having to shoot a man to death who tried to kill him in his apartment:
"And I suppose he tried to kill you because he didn't like your cologne," said Tesmer
"You noticed it too, huh?" I saw Stahlecker smile a bit at that, but so did Tesmer, and he didn't like it.....
"I've told you the truth Tesmer. I opened the door and there was Herr Kolb with the lighter pointing at my dinner."
"A (gun) on you, and yet you still managed to take him. I don't see any holes in you, Gunther."
"I'm taking a correspondence course in hypnotism. Like I said, I was lucky. He missed."
"Listen, I don't mesmerize easy. This fellow was a professional. Not the sort to let you have his lighter for a bag of sherbert."
"A professional what--haberdasher? Don't talk out of your navel, Tesmer. He was just a kid."

This was the type of book I HATE to finish, because I always want more. Thankfully, I have plenty of other Phillip Kerr novels yet to read.
