Elisabeth  Herrmann - The Nanny


"This is the high art of crime writing." Deutschlandradio Kultur

Joachim Vernau has made it to the top of society in Berlin. He is on the verge of marrying into the wealthy and influential von Zernikow family, not realising that their respectability is nothing but a façade. When an Ukrainian woman appears on the scene claiming to having worked for the Zernikows as a slave labourer during World War II, the family patriarch has her thrown out without further ado. Soon afterwards, she is pulled out of the canal, dead. Vernau begins asking uncomfortable questions and not only discovers the woman's identity but also stumbles across a lucrative business with looted art…

• Nominated for the Glauser, Germany's most important crime-writing prize

"A political crime novel with high entertainment value. Magnificent!"
