Ulrich  Ritzel - The Prophet's Dog


Nominated for the Friedrich Glauser Prize

Berndorf is retired and what he really wants to do is to move to Berlin and join Barbara, his significant other. At the grave of his one-time colleague Jonas Seiffert, however, he somewhat unwillingly agrees to look after the dead man's dog, a boxer. What changes his daily routine even more than the dog is the unanswered question Seiffert has left for him. It takes him back to the 1960s, when the house of a Gypsy family in the Swabian Jura is destroyed one night. When a young Sinto is accused of having killed local journalist and secret sex photographer Hollerbach, Berndorf finds himself caught up in an explosive mixture of gun running, old Stasi networks and officially approved US espionage.
A build-up of tension in the firing line of recent history shrewdly examined– just what Ritzel fans love.

"Pure pleasure for anyone wanting to read one of the best German crime stories of the year." Stern
