Philip Kerr on The Bernie Gunther Mysteries

The third lecture of the Wiener Library's 'Writing Wrongs: The Nazi Era in Fiction' series.

A lecture on Philip Kerr's award winning crime series, 'The Bernie Gunther Mysteries'.

Philip Kerr was born in Edinburgh in 1956. He studied law at Birmingham University and qualified as a barrister. After a brief period as an advertising copywriter, he left to pursue a career as a writer. His first novel was March Violets, set in pre-war Berlin and featuring private eye Bernie Gunther. The Pale Criminal and A German Requiem followed, also featuring Bernie and making up the original ‘Berlin Noir’ trilogy. Philip has most recently returned to the series with The One from the Other, A Quiet Flame and If the Dead Rise Not which won the RBA International Award for Crime Writing and the Ellis Peters Historical Award from the Crime Writers’ Association last year.

Guy Walters is the author and editor of nine books, including the critically acclaimed Berlin Games and his latest work, Hunting Evil. After beginning on The Times as feature writer and commissioning editor, Walters continues to write for a number of UK newspapers and magazines. He is co-editor of The Voice of War, an anthology of Second World War memoirs, and lives in Wiltshire with his wife and two children.
