I didn't realise this was the second book with Herr Schmidt as the character. There were enough references and explanations and I liked filling in the gaps myself - I honestly thought the author was crediting his readers with enough intelligence to not be told the "whole" story. I love low tech thrillers and murders set in a well described point in history and this was an absolute cracker!!!
Rating - I give this 5/5
