Enhance your purchase
Freshly trained detective Johannes “Hannes” Niehaus is brand-new to the Criminal Investigation Department. And his partner, unconventional veteran detective Fritz Janssen, isn’t the least bit thrilled to train a rookie.
When a woman’s body washes up on the nearby shores of the Baltic Sea, Hannes gets his first taste of real crime―and a chance to prove himself. Quickly the investigation pulls him and Fritz into a whirlpool of dangerous, decades-old cover-ups. As the death count rises, the clues begin to lead them back to the Third Reich―and to harrowing crimes some people will do anything to keep hidden.
With the dead woman’s beautiful assistant to protect and a missing girl to find, Hannes navigates an ever-twisting maze of concealed horrors and enduring vendettas. Will he be able to catch the murderer before another innocent life gets caught in the killer’s dark plan?

The IG Farben plot was a relatively good idea, but the kidnapped woman and the reason too obviously lifted from Mercy (Department Q) Its denouement depended too heavily on the one hand the aptly named "Merlin" providing key information like magic.and random unexplained discoveries on the internet by the hunky athletic probationary detective with the magic ability to get people to talk to him where others fail - meanwhile all the ("hot", natch) women queued up to garner his attention.
Only one thing made me down-rate it, and that was because the translation is from German into American English. Being English, the book was full of 'spelling mistakes', and the whole feel of the book was more of an American setting than of being on a Baltic shore. Harbo r. CentEr. 'exact same ' Sorry, but it broke the spell many times for me as spelling after phrase led me to the States.
Wish it had been translated into English....
These hang together very well, and provide clues that I only recognised when I'd read all the way to the end. The story is internally consistent, has plenty of hooks to keep you reading and more than a few red herrings to keep you guessing. The solution wasn't totally obvious to me, yet nor did it feel like it was sprung on me either. It made perfect sense, but only when it was revealed.
In all, a very well written thriller, and very well translated. The pacing and choice of language was excellent, showing a high level of skill in the translator (bringing out the excellent plotting and pacing in the original author).
