Book review: With the hat and the revolver in Berlin mellankrigsvärld

There are pieces of the story that is so thoroughly artistic inmutade that they are difficult to tackle. Mellankrigstidens Berlin is one such piece, in such a place and such a time. History answer key, and Fritz Langs with fleras expressionist shadows sweeps period in a threatening obscurity and then perforated by burleskljus, cigarette burns, revolverskott and Mackie Messer.

Volker Kutschers attempt to portray Weimarepokens German capital is, therefore, may boldly. In the first part of the suite ”Babylon Berlin” (in German, there are eight parts) is the police inspector Gereon Rath. He is a young cop who, with the help of contacts transfer to Berlin after kölhalats of the press at its previous instructions.

Now, he works on sedlighetsroteln, but plotting a murder investigation. Which, of course, turns out to be a small thread in a larger tangle.

the First part of the eight in the Swedish translation.

become appreciated tv series as well, with so far two seasons and a third on the way. May be able to film better interpret the Berlin in the spring of 1929. In prose it will be certainly entertaining, but a little styltigt sometimes.

the Translator Ola Wallin has quite reasonably been used by the Swedish from the same period – even though I'm not completely sure at the time used the ”pears” on their parents – which means that you have to put up with nicknames like ”The karlsloken!”.

Kutscher is a little well with a bold heart into the dialogue.

But he is aware of the large specimens. He has a småmystisk storgangster by the name of Dr. M in the cast. It frequents the legendary Café Josty at Potsdamer Platz and the rumlar around in clubs and kabareter.

of Christopher Isherwoods novel ”Goodbye to Berlin” (1939, probably more known in its filmatiserade version ”Cabaret”) are the nazis still only one of several difficult part as you don't take really seriously. They made a noise, and arms itself but mostly in the background. Here it is rather the communists there are worries, especially in the police force.

In general, one can conclude that the Kutschers, Berlin, very similar to today's German capital: a little bufflig construction site that smells like sausage.
