It seems to be set in 1935, the year of the movie's release, but there's no references to anything specific in history to clarify it. Scenes set in Berlin are all quite vague with the description and it seems to exist in an alternate or floating timeline. The second act has it turn into a road movie (road book?) of sorts, which works to a degree, then it all falls apart in the third act when Hand seems to channel Fritz Lang's Metropolis and confuses the meandering story by introducing way too many new characters instead of focusing on plot or building an atmosphere. This novel simply doesn't know what it wants to be, which is a shame since I was quite enjoying it to begin with.
