Alex  Beer - The Dark Courier


"This is what crime literature is about." ORF

Vienna, November 1920: An unexpected cold spell has de-stroyed the crops, one man in three is out of a job, and organised crime is booming. But the murder case that has shaken the city surpasses anything ever seen before: a body has been viciously mutilated and is discovered covered in a layer of ice. Shortly afterwards, a letter claiming responsibility appears.

Detective inspector August Emmerich and his assistant, Ferdinand Winter, investigate – and that is not the only mystery they have to solve, for they still have not tracked down Xaver Koch, the man who has abducted Emmerich's life partner and has turned out to be a dangerous opponent …

Winner of the Leo Perutz Prize 2019

"The Dark Courier tells of the hard fight for a life worth living and thus exceeds by far the boundaries of a common crime novel."
