  1. It s difficult to wander any bookstore in Poland without coming across a shelf devoted to Krajewski s quartet of Breslau books, which include, in order, Death in Breslau, The End of the World in Breslau, Ghosts in the City of Breslau, and Breslau Fortress and I was thrilled when I discovered a translated copy of the first book in a bookstore in Berlin My interest in reading this series in particular outside of learning about a new Polish author was that the books were set in you guessed it Bresl [...]

  3. First in a series of five novels, Death in Breslau might just possibly be my favorite crime fiction novel so far this year I hadn t even finished this book and bought the next two, The End of the World in Breslau and The Phantoms of Breslau If the cover doesn t grab you, the story will.The story begins in 1950 in a Dresden psychiatric hospital, where the director is being pressed by a Stasi official who wants to question the patient named Herbert Anwaldt Herbert Anwaldt s identity and the reason [...]


  4. I enjoyed reading this book and give it 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 Eberhard Mock is a Police Inspector in Breslau, Germany in 1933 present day Wroclaw,Poland He is called to the scene of 2 horrific murders Two women have been horribly mutilated and 1 of them is the daughter of very powerful man, Baron Von Malten Mock is between a rock and a hard place, as solving the murders means antagonizing the Gestapo and not solving them means that the Baron will betray him to the Gestapo The plot moves alon [...]


  5. The city of Breslau Don t look for it on a map It doesn t exist any Once upon a time, it was a German city sharing a border with Poland After the atrocities of World War 2, the Soviets drove out the German populace and gave it to Poland It is now Wroclaw.Back to the book Breslau, 1933 A teenage girl and her nanny are murdered and ritually disemboweled on a train car in Breslau Inspector Mock knew the girl and her father, a local aristocrat To assist Mock in solving the crime, the Berlin police s [...]



  6. The book is set in Breslau a pre WW2 town in Germany in 1933, subsequently Polish post war In a nutshell, a triple murder, double rape has occurred and Mock the policeman or Kriminaldirektor is tasked with solving the case Most of the narrative takes place during 1933, with the concluding passage wrapping things up in 1951.I m undecided as to my feelings about the book overall Clich s such as un put down able or page turner definitely don t apply in this instance Occasionally you read a book tha [...]


  7. Tod in Breslau lebt nicht nur von seinem markanten Mordfall, sondern auch von der sehr stimmigen Atmosph re Marek Krajewski l sst hier das Breslau der 1930er Jahre vor dem Auge des Lesers entstehen und schildert dies detailreich und getreu.Mit Eberhard Mock bekommt man es mit einem nicht allt glichen Kommissar zu tun, denn er betr gt seine Frau, geht ins Bordell und schreckt auch nicht vor Schlimmerem zur ck Durch den Roman zieht sich ebenso eine Spur aus Korruption, Machtgeschachere, Folter und [...]


  8. Breslau, 1934 The head of the local police, Eberhard Mock, enjoys playing strip chess with prostitutes This is perhaps his most endearing quality, as he is a corrupt sadist Herbert Anwaldt is an alcoholic grown up orphan with an education in the classics His commander in Berlin has had it with him and is only too happy to ship him off to Bresalu on an errand Together, Mock and Anwaldt must solve the murder of Baron von der Malten s daughter the young woman was attacked in her train car, raped, d [...]


  9. Very dark, historical crime novel with policemen who are violent, drink too much, extort and whore as protagonists Underneath all the evil and violence, it is book about lonely people longing to belong and seeking escape from this harsh reality And it is a book about a society that s disappeared under the politics of war.The characters are way complex and interesting than the standard fare coming in shovel loads out of the land of the brave and the free In these pages, you won t find your avera [...]



  10. Somewhat disappointing novel after the reviews that made it sound interesting than the relatively banal thriller mystery it turned out to be with centuries long grudges, agents that could do anything until they ran afoul of the author so to speak, etcSome good parts here and there the cynical attitude of the main character and the all around depravity but overall the novel does not transcend its genre and as I said many times, you read a thriller, you read all and I mostly got bored rather than [...]

  12. Author Marek Krajewski s set of four crime novels featuring Counsellor Eberhard Mock have been translated into 14 languages To my knowledge, this first book in the series is the first release of any in the U.S proper.In the novel, the city of Breslau which later became Wroc law after WWII is swarming with Gestapo in 1933 and the Nazis are sliding their fingers into all things law enforcement, political, and Jewish The story plays forth and back between this time and around 1945 The novel first c [...]


  13. Seventeen year old Marietta von der Malten was on the floor , naked from the waist down Her loose, thick, ash blonde hair was saturated with blood, like a sponge Her face was contorted as if by a sudden attack of paralysis Garlands of int3estines lay scattered at the sides of her slashed body The torn stomach revealed remnants of undigested food Mock caught sight of something in the abdominal cavity Overcoming his revulsion, he leaned over the girl s body The stench was unbearable Mock swallowed [...]


  14. The Independent described this book as noir as they get I also love some of the other reviews They give you a sense of the muscle in the book A dark and compelling novel, full of perverse sex and violence as the world begins to spin off its axis The Mail on Sunday The city of Breslau is as much a character in this thriller as the parade of gothic loons that inhabit itThis addictive soup has an air of burlesque about it The Daily Telegraph Krajewski relishes the period detail as takes us from blo [...]


  15. This is as good as it gets in crime fiction.While its certainly not difficult to find books in this genre with police inspectors with self loathing and questionable ethics, few take it to the levels of this series The self hatred is almost visceral and manifests itself in behavior which isn t simply questionable, it s anti social, despicable, and well It all seems fitting perhaps in the backdrop of 1930 s Germany where our hero Eberhart Mock is called on to solve a case involving the brutal scor [...]


  16. Do editors still read books before they are published It s hard to know if the bad writing in this book is due to the translator or the author The translator clearly isn t fluent in English, often using incorrect words when clearly something else is intended For instance, literary digression is referred to as retardation , and pushy is used when what is meant is horny That reference comes in a discussion of a quote from the ancient author Hezjod , whom I thought must be some heretofore unknown t [...]

  18. Hmm Interesting setting Breslau in the 1930s as the Nazis are moving in and taking over An utterly corrupt, corrosive, decadent city One morose, scheming, devious middle aged policeman and one young naive, alcoholic, floundering policeman, joining forces to investigate the really nasty double rape and murder of two women connected to one of Breslau s socially prominent noblemen You want dark, you will get dark You want bloody, sadistic, deliberate brutality, yep, lots of that, plus scorpions You [...]


  19. This is the type of book I wouldn t normally read as it very dark and gritty, but was recommended to me so gave it a read It s an interesting story of a corrupt police office working in the town of Breslau in Germany during the 1930 s It tells the story of the murder of a young girl and the investigation to find murderer It s not the typical detective story, it very dark with plenty of murder and corrupt police officers who don t think twice about killing someone to get some information There al [...]


  20. Hey Krajewski is in English now, you know This is a good, tough, even funny read if it s Death in Breslau, that is if you can accept that the um, hero, Inspector Mock, is a corrupt cop in a corrupt age, doing what he has to to get by And what he has to do ain t nice It wouldn t be, would it, in an outpost of the Reich where the Gestapo are moving in on the action There are no heroes, really, or even sympathetic characters other than the innocent victims The other one I ve read in English is call [...]


  21. As someone else stated, Why did I read this The book seemed to have potential a murder in Breslau during 1933 1934 as the rise of Hitler and the Gestapo begins to take over the German government The police are trying to work cases while by passing any Nazi interference Sounds good But the story veers into corruption and debauchery along with a winding tale of why the murder came to be Too much and by the end, I just didn t care any Sorry


  22. Nie by o tak le, jak za pierwszym, nieudanym, podej ciem Powie mi si podoba a, cho nagromadzenie szczeg w przedwojennego Wroc awia, mnie akurat przeszkadza o I jeszcze ta maniera autora, kt rej nie umiem uchwyci do ko ca, ale kt rej wyrazem s pierwsze zdania kolejnej powie ci pana Krajewskiego wycieraczki apczywie zgarnia y p aty niegu Jednak ca a fabu a i spos b nakre lenia bohater w, kt rzy bohaterami nie s i adnego nie da si lubi ani podziwia , odpowiada mi.



  23. Giving up This book is a disappointment artificial and contrived The translation is awkward There are better places to put my time It s a pity because there are one or two sections where the writing does come to life.
