    1. Wenn ich nachts lese, weil ich unbedingt wissen muss, wie es ausgeht, ist mir das 5 Sterne wert. Diese Geschichte hat alles, was eine spannende Krimihandlung ausmacht. Es geht um Liebe, Freundschaft, Verrat, Mitläufertum und Zivilcourage in Kriegszeiten.Im Nachlass seines Vaters findet Robert Lubisch das Bild einer jungen Frau, sowie einen SS-Ausweis eines ihm unbekannten Mannes. Zusammen mit der Journalistin Rita beginnt er zu recherchieren und dabei stoßen sie auf sechs Freunde, die sich zu [...]

    2. Germany past and present clash in this excellent translated German thriller.Set in small German town in the late 90s, the discovery of some old army papers ignite an investigation that uncovers some dark secrets among a small group of friends at the end of the war.Whilst I thought I’d guessed the plot there’s more twists and turns towards an unexpected conclusion. A rattling good read!

    3. Whereas a few years ago Sweden became a hub for mysteries translated to English, now it’s Germany’s turn; this is the fifth or sixth I’ve read in the past year. The premise is simple: man finds photo, has daddy issues, piques a journalist’s curiosity. But of course things are never that simple, especially because there’s another narrative going on, taking place during World War 2.For a while the journalist is the protagonist, but when she’s killed this turns from a history mystery to [...]

    4. Eine traurige und berührende Geschichte, wunderschön erzählt. Das war jetzt mein zweites Buch dieser Autorin und auch hier hätte ich mir gewünscht, dass es dicker ist. Damit ich länger etwas davon habe :-)

    5. Friedhelm Lubisch founded a respected construction company and donated a fortune to the Association of Displaced Persons in Germany. But his son Robert never lived up to his expectations. While going through his deceased father's papers, Robert is reminded of the story his father told him of stealing a dead SS guard's papers and running away from the war front. He also finds a photograph of an unidentified woman from the same time period, and decides to try and identify her.This novel deftly wea [...]

    6. One of the best book I've read in a long timeRobert Lubisch found an old photograph of a young woman and some papers in his father's study after he died. This discovery led Robert to search for the woman and her connection to his father. The story starts before the second world war and ends early this century. I won't go into any more details because it would spoil the story for other readers.I usually only review really good books or really bad ones and this one is exceptionally good. Although [...]

    7. Looks like the Scandi-noir genre has some competition! Mechtild Borrman is well-known in Germany for her murder mysteries and I believe this is the first one translated into English. It's not a tremendously long story, barely 230 pages, and there are a lot of characters readers might have difficulty keeping track of, but it's an intriguing tale that jumps back and forth between the late 1990s and the war years in northern Germany. The ending is one I didn't see coming, which is always a pleasant [...]

    8. Family secretsInteresting story often told through flashbacks while solving the murder of a woman today and the connection to the disappearance of a man during World War II. Enough intrigue and surprising twists to keep the reader curious.

    9. I loved the story. The backdrop is Germany during WWII and follows 6 high schoolers who graduated at the start of the war and their experiences. But the story was done in a current day / flashback style.A man cleaning out his father's desk after he passes, finds a photo that makes him want to find out more about his father's history during the war. The digging leads him to a small town to an investigative reporter. Just as she is making progress into the story, she learns that it will be a huge [...]

    10. No real surprise but still goodYou can pretty well work out whodunit early on but it's all about arriving at the solution. This is more of a study of a group of friends coming of age in a difficult time. This is the author's first book to be translated into English , a second book has been translated and is now on my to read list.

    11. A beautifully written crime story set in Germany during WWII and in 1998, as certain characters reflect on the past. Both tragic and heartfelt. I am not sure who gets the credit for the writing - the author or the translator.

    12. Surprises!I really appreciate a story with a surprise ending so I really enjoyed the other surprises even more! Well written! This is my first time to read this author but it won't be my last!

    13. This WWII crime novel had an interesting plot but the characters were poorly formed and it just didn’t grab me.

    14. The intertwining of the past and present is really well done. Once you start reading, you'll want to read more and more of it to see what happens.

    15. Denne tyske krimi var et hit i hjemlandet, men jeg fandt den jævnt kedelig, og synes plottet føltes meget "konstrueret".Mechtild Borrmanns skrivestil er omtrent lige så sanselig som hendes navn. Historien fortælles i tredjepersonsperspektiv med mange indirekte citater og et persongalleri, der er for omfangsrigt og overfladisk beskrevet til at de enkelte karakterer tager bo i ens tanker. Det er et problem for historien, for Borrmann vil gerne skrive om de store, intense følelser. Dem kommer [...]

    16. Es ist eine sehr interessante Geschichte, die trotz der wenigen Seiten komplex aufgebaut ist und durch unerwartete Wendungen immer wieder überraschen kann. Dabei kommt der Roman ohne viel Blutvergießen und Action aus, fesselt eher durch einen interessant angelegten und auch glaubhaften Plot.Das Buch spielt auf zwei Zeitebenen - 1939-52 und 1998 – und beide Handlungsstränge sind auf zunächst unklare Weise miteinander verknüpft. Während im Jahr 1998 Robert Lubisch den Nachlass seines Vater [...]

    17. Audiobuch I had read a different book of Borrmann's. I enjoyed this one just as much. Robert Lubisch holt nach dem Tod seines Vaters ein paar persönliche Gegenstände aus dessen Villa in Essen, bevor das Haus verkauft werden soll. Dabei findet er in einer Schublade ein paar seltsame Gegenstände: Einen Passierschein ohne Namen, einen Entlassungsschein aus der Kriegsgefangenschaft mit dem Namen seines Vaters, einen SS-Ausweis eines Mannes namens Wilhelm Peters und das vergilbte Porträtfoto eine [...]

    18. This short, but excellent, book, "Wer das Schweigen bricht" (The one who breaks the silence), won deservedly Germany’s most prestigious crime fiction award, the “Deutscher Krimi Preis”, in the year 2012. It is a crime story so well written that it hooks you after only a few pages. It has all the right ingredients – unrequited love, murder, hate, nazis, WW2, ordinary people etc. I read it in only two days, and I stayed up at night to finish it. (I read the Danish translation).The story is [...]

    19. Rompre le silence est un récit qui nous plonge dans de sombres secrets grâce à une narration en deux temps où l’auteur nous emmène dans la tourmente de la seconde guerre mondiale, où six adolescents ont choisi de se protéger mutuellement quoi qu’il advienne. Les liens d’amour et d’amitié vont pourtant être affectés par la guerre, certains décidant de s’engager alors que riahlit/2017/02/romp

    20. Mechthild Borrmann hat einen Krimi geschrieben, der kurz und doch sehr berührend ist. Robert Lubisch findet nach dem Tod des Vaters einen SS-Ausweis und ein Foto von einer unbekannten Frau in dem Schrnak seines Vaters. Wer ist diese Frau? Und was hat der Ausweis zu bedeuten? Er begibt sich auf die Spurensuche und reißt unbewußt damit auch die Wunden einiger Menschen auf. Denn 1939 lebten in einem Dorf sechs gute Freunde zusammen. Sie verbrachten viel Zeit miteinander und schworen sich nicht a [...]

    21. ARC courtesy of the author and publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Genre: Adult Fiction, MysteryThis story is set in war-torn Germany in 1939 and also in modern day Germany. The author is excellent with keeping the two stories separate, but the storyline interwoven. In 1997, Dr. Robert Lubish is clearing out his father's house after his death. As he comes across S.S. identification papers, he remembers the story his father told him. His father had stolen the dead guard's pap [...]

    22. Audiobook-Rezension:Über Mechthild Borrmann stolperte ich durch Zufall, mir gefiel das Cover und eh ich mich versah, lauschte ich gespannt Katrin Daliots Lesung von Wer das Schweigen bricht.Ungewöhnlich schwierig finde ich es, den Plot dieses Kriminalromans zusammenzufassen, ich will mich hier auch nicht in Namen, Orten und Zeiten verlieren. Eine passende Zusammenfassung kann man vielleicht bei krimi-couch nachlesen. Borrmann schlägt einen Bogen zwischen lange zurückliegenden, dramatischen E [...]

    24. -Mi aspettavo di meglio-Robert è un giovane medico, ha perso il padre, con il quale non aveva un buon rapporto. Un giorno Robert trova un passaporto ricoperto di sangue: appartiene a Wilhelm Peters, un agente delle SS. Robert conosce questo nome, è l'uomo a cui il padre ha rubato l'identità per fuggire dal nazismo. Accanto al passaporto c'è il ritratto di una giovane donna dagli occhi di ghiaccio. Robert non l'ha mai vista ma vuole scoprire chi sia. Il libro narra dei viaggi e delle indagini [...]

    25. I received a free copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Publishing!Silence is like a set of Russian dolls - one whodunit wrapped in another, all within a mystery that spans decades. There is a murder in the present, a disappearance in the past and a completely unexpected twist that changes everything. But this is not a brainless novel. The characters are well developed and evolve believably, especially the ones that live through both timelines. The sto [...]

    26. Excellent I choose the books I read for superficial and often stupid reasons. In this case, I didn't think about the fact that this was originally published in German. I was amazed by the fantastic quality of the translation. The original story was exceptional. The translation kept the quality high. Having read books originally written in other languages, I am aware of how hard that is to do.The story moves quickly. There are lots of surprises. The relationship between a murder in the 1950's and [...]

    27. This English translation of "Wer Das Schweigen Bricht", the 2012 winner of Germany's Deutscher Krimi Preis (Best Mystery Novel) is near; if not at, the top of the best mystery/thriller books I have ever read. It is an intricately-woven tale of a disappearance in 1950, a murder in 1998, and the relationship of a group of young friends caught up in wartime Germany. The mystery is masterfully peeled back layer-by-layer, and the conclusion is stunning! Highly recommended. I hope more of Mechtild Bor [...]

    28. A story where the certainties of today dissolve as the truth of the past is revealed. A fantastic novel about the end of the war and the search for a place in the new Germany. Love, betrayal and loyalty are all explored and questioned in a great plot. The narration of the past is seamlessly interspersed with the happenings of the present as we move from one paragraph to another. This is a real strength of the book because it places the characters at the centre of present and past events and give [...]
