Overview

This book contains:

* includes exercises for comprehension training
* hand-drawn illustrations by the author

From the introduction:

In German, detective stories are called Krimis. One of the most famous German Krimis is perhaps the TV-series Tatort which means crime scene and has been running since 1970 on television channels in Austria, Switzerland and Germany. Watching the weekly Tatort has become an almost iconic activity in everyday German culture. Each Sunday at 8:15pm, shortly after the evening news, millions are flocking to the screen to solve fresh crimes and mysteries.
This book is a detective story especially written for German learners. Not only does it invite readers to help solve a crime but also to pick up important Krimi vocabulary that can serve as a preparation for watching series such as Tatort and many others in the original.
Each chapter contains a selection of relevant words translated into English, and is followed by questions regarding the content. (The correct answers are to be found at the end of the book.)
While the writing itself primarily aims at an entertaining and interactive experience, the language is specially designed to familiarize the reader with unique forms of spoken German, with an emphasis on dialogue and the daily culture of speech.

I really wish I could thank this author in person. This is an engaging story for intermediate levels, and includes questions after each chapter to check that you comprehended what you read. I actually didn't realize that this was the fifth book in the series, but this book can definitely be read as a standalone. It's a great supplement to learning and I highly recommend it, as well as the Dino books. I'm afraid these books are making my reading ability too good! ;) my listening comprehension is totally disproportionate to it
