STERN CRIME reporter Félice Gritti in conversation with the authors Alex Beer and Nikola Hahn.

Two women who are familiar with the crimes of the past. One, Alex Beer, is a master of the historical crime novel. In her latest book "Felix Blom. The prisoner from Moabit", her hero hunts down a murderer in the Berlin of the German Empire. The other, Nikola Hahn, is not only an author, but also a former murder investigator and now a criminology lecturer at the Hessian Police College. STERN CRIME reporter Félice Gritti talks to the two about how history gives writing a framework, but also sets limits. How the spirit of the time influences investigations. And what today's civil servants can learn from historical models.
