Det er sommeren 1956. Bernie Gunther arbejder under falsk navn som receptionschef på det berømte Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat ved Den Franske Riviera. Da verdens måske rigeste og måske mest berømte forfatter, W. Somerset Maugham, mangler en fjerde mand til et spil bridge, træder Gunther velvilligt til. Det viser sig hurtigt, at den excentriske Maugham ikke blot vil spille kort, han har også brug for professionel rådgivning i en penibel sag om afpresning.I sit sydfranske skjul forsøger Bernie Gunther at holde fortiden på afstand, men da en gammel fjende og naziforbryder, Harold Hennig, ankommer som gæst til Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, begynder det hele at gå skævt. HINSIDES TAVSHEDEN er ellevte fritstående bog i Philip Kerrs prisbelønnede og atmosfærefyldte Berlin Noir-serie. Krigen er slut, men selv i 1956 er freden endnu ikke kommet til kontinentet. Stormagternes kontraspionage spidser til, Sovjetunionen har brintbomben, og spionerne ser hele Europa som deres legeplads."

1956. Bernie Gunther er på flugt fra sit franske skjul, hvor Erich Mielke og hans gorillaer i det østtyske sikkerhedspoliti, Stasi, har fundet ham. Manden, som Mielke har sat til at jage Bernie, og som stille og roligt skubber ham tættere på Tyskland, er en gammel kollega fra tiden hos kriminalpolitiet i Berlin. En på alle måder spektakulær sag blev i 1939 deres sidste sammen. 1939. Bernie indkaldes til Berghof, Hitlers private hjem i bjergene i Obersalzberg. En tysk ingeniør er blevet myrdet, og Hitlers højre hånd, selveste Martin Bormann, ønsker sagen opklaret så hurtigt og så smertefrit som muligt, uden at Føreren nogensinde må finde ud af, at hans private domæne har været hjemsted for mord. BERLINERBLÅT er det måske mest bemærkelsesværdige af Bernie Gunthers eventyr. Flere lande og sytten år adskiller mordet på Berghof og hans nuværende situation, og igen må Bernie erfare, at fortiden altid indhenter ham til sidst. Denne gang hjemme i Tyskland. "BERLINERBLÅT er en af Philip Kerrs største triumfer." Politiken, 5 ud af 6 hjerter "Velskrevet og velkomponeret roman." Weekendavisen "Bogen - og hele serien generelt - er både spændende og rigtigt interessant samt intelligent læsning. Det er bøger mindst på niveau med John le Carré, og det er en ubetinget ros. Prøv selv!" Drustrups bogblog "I “Berlinerblåt” konfronteres læseren konstant med en kulsort humor, der får én til at grine larmende et kort nådigt øjeblik, inden det igen bliver gruopvækkende alvor. Kerr mestrer flot den hårfine balance mellem god underholdning og lødig historieskrivning." Bogrummet.dk

Bernie Gunther's latest move in a string of varied careers sees him working for an insurance company. It makes a kind of sense: both cops and insurance companies have a vested interest in figuring out when people are lying to them, and Bernie has a lifetime of experience to call on.Sent to Athens to investigate a claim from a fellow German for a sunken ship, Bernie takes an instant dislike to the claimant. When he discovers the ship in question once belonged to a Greek Jew deported to Auschwitz, he is convinced the sinking was no accident but an act of vengeance. And so Bernie is once again drawn inexorably back to the dark history of the Second World War, and the deportation of the Jews of Salonika - now Thessaloniki. As Europe prepares to move on to a more united future with Germany as a partner rather than an enemy, at least one person in Greece is ready neither to forgive nor forget. And, deep down, Bernie thinks they may have a point.
