This review is from: The End of the World in Breslau: An Eberhard Mock Investigation (Paperback)
Good. Very good. The detective Eberhard Mock is actually so much more entertaining than Morse or Rebus; indeed, I cannot think of any fictional detective more entertaining. Breslau, the setting, has interested me for some years since reading Norman Davies' Microcosm: a portrait of a central European city, the extremely detailed history of this (now) Polish city. Author Marek Krajewski's evocation of the 1920s Breslau, then under German control, is wonderful; the various streets and haunts are conjured up so convincingly along with a host of entertaining characters and their foibles. My one criticism is lack of a map of central Breslau as it was then.
