Important to read this series from the beginning.

My original impression was that these books were rather disjointed, switching from time and place rather haphazardly. However, I persevered because against my better judgement I came to like Bernie Gunther. As I read on I came to appreciate how cleverly constructed this series of books really is. Each book depicts the atmosphere of Nazi Germany through the main character’s experiences whilst telling the story of how this leads to his chaotic 1950’s life. I’m thoroughly hooked half way through the series with neither story complete.
