The Pale Criminal

A gripping historical thriller, The Pale Criminal is the second novel in the iconic Berlin Noir series, and an unflinching examination of the grisly excesses of Nazi subculture and the social tensions that pervaded prewar Berlin.

The Pale Criminal

Bernie Gunther is back on the mean streets of Berlin with his new partner, Bruno Stahlecker, another ex-police officer. But on a seemingly straightforward stakeout, Bruno is killed, and Bernie suddenly finds himself tapped for a much bigger job. A serial sex murderer is killing Aryan teenage girls in Berlin--and what's worse, he's making utter fools of the police. Gunther is forced to accept a temporary post in Obergruppenfuehrer Reinhard Heydrich's state Security Service, with a team of men underneath him tasked purely with hunting the killer. But can he trust his team any more than he can trust his superiors?
