Read from January 01 to 14, 2012

I love the Bernie Gunther series of books. The dialogue is sometimes super corny (Chandleresque), but the main character himself is absolutely brilliant - a cop in the Third Reich who hates the nazis, but is a member of the SS, a confidant of Heydrich, and has been involved in some horrible things out east.

Prague Fatale is far more claustrophobic than most of the other books in the series (which have ranged from Nazi Berlin, to post war Germany, Argentina, Cuba and beyond, sometimes in the same book), taking place largely in one building in Prague, so is a little different from the others, but loses nothing for it. It has the feel of (and namechecks) Agatha Christie in parts.

Absolutely top notch stuff.
