Babylon Berlin

Babylon Berlin by Arne Jysch and Volker Kutscher, 216 pages.

Gereon Rath had to leave the Cologne police after shooting the wrong man in the line of duty. He had to do it, but he was still forced out. Now he's in Berlin, working in Vice, trying to get transferred to Homicide. When a body is found in a car pulled from the river, Rath works with a Homicide clerk Charlotte Ritter on identifying the victim and figuring out the crime (Nazis, it was Nazis). Based on the books (by Kutscher) that inspired the German television series of the same name, the graphic novels are well-executed with some details different from the show.
