In BERLIN NOIR, Philip Kerr’s first three Bernie Gunther novels – MARCH VIOLETS, THE PALE CRIMINAL, A GERMAN REQUIEM --  are compiled in one volume, the perfect introduction to the “best crime series around today” (The Daily Beast).

And even after the war, amidst the decayed, imperial splendour of Vienna, Bernie uncovered a legacy that made the wartime atrocities look lily-white in comparison...
