Robert  Hültner - Deadly Bavaria


The award-winning crime writer tells the stories of historical crime cases

In his first non-fiction book, Robert Hültner sets out in the tracks of reality. He has meticulously researched eight crime cases from two centuries of Bavarian history, reconstructed what happened and retold the spectacular stories behind them.

The blood-red trail of real crime takes us all the way through Bavaria. It goes to Lower Bavaria where, in 1818, a village priest commits one crime after the other until he makes the mistake of underestimating a clever 15-year-old girl. Then it moves on to the Munich suburb of Maxvorstadt where, in 1867, the body of a young woman is found, the wife of the Austrian emperor's highest civil servant. And it also finds its way to the Bavarian Forest where, in 2004, politicians were for months terrorised by letter bombs without the police and state security having anything to go on.

Every word is true in these stories; they are stories that show how people become murderers, how political change can influence crime, how ethical and moral standards shift. The tale of modern history can hardly be more gripping.
