Viviane Janouin-Benanti

The ogre of Hanover station

Version française

Haarmann case

Mister Haarmann, so elegant, always smiling, the so friendly Mr Haarmann, a citizen above suspicion.

"270 disappearances, you realize that we've had 270 disappearances in one year!" exclaimed, beside himself, Commissioner Retz in front of his dumbfounded policemen.

And the number increased, increased…

In Hanover, the rumor said that children’ bodies were filling the river... Finally, the Leine was emptied; in the foul-smelling mud, 1,700 human bones were found.

Sensitive souls, abstain.

With one crime a week, fortunately Mr. Haarmann was arrested…

A true story, incredible, like all the criminal cases of Viviane Janouin-Benanti who wrote twenty books, including “Held captive 25 years”, “The assassin was a child”, “The assassinated virgin”, so many thrilling novels.
