Cay Rademacher "The Rubble Killer"

Hamburg 1947: The city lies in ruins and it is one of the coldest winters of the century.

People try to survive somehow.

A corpse is discovered in the middle of the rubble: a young woman, naked, no indication of the murderer.

Chief Inspector Stave has little hope of clearing up the case...

blurb / Dumont

A very detailed and atmospherically dense crime thriller was created in post-war Hamburg.

Rademacher knows how to span the arc of suspense, even if the narrative pace of “Der Rubblemörder” can be assigned to the more tranquil representatives of the genre.

The thriller is based on a true case that has not been solved.

When the Haubach couple are found dead in their apartment in Hamburg-Altona, the case seems clear at first glance: suicide.

That's why inspector Kenjiro Takeda, a member of the Tokyo Homicide Squad and currently working as an intern in Germany, was sent to the crime scene.

But Takeda is skeptical.

Rightly so, as it soon turns out, because there are clues pointing to murder, and there are enough suspects.

Together with his German partner, Chief Inspector Claudia Harms, Takeda begins the investigation in his own way.
