Rurschatten – Crime Reading with the Aachen Author Olaf Müller

18:00 - 20:00

Fireworks at the Annakirmes in Düren. A mysterious message lures 88-year-old Alexander Rütters into the ghost train. The ride ends fatally and Aachen inspector Fett, together with his assistant Schmelzer, takes on the investigation. The search for clues leads the detective duo not only to the Rur Lake and the Jülich nuclear research facility, but also to Liège, more specifically: to Outremeuse and right into the city’s town hall. What is the enigmatic word “Rurschatten” about? Has Rütters belatedly caught up with his wartime past? In the end, even the Belgian secret service comes into play…

A thrilling crime novel, written by an ardent admirer of Liège master Georges Simenon, will be heard in excerpts this evening. The author will read in German, while individual passages will be read in French in a translation made by students of the Université de Liège. During the subsequent discussion with the author, interpretation into French will be provided if necessary.

Olaf Müller was born in 1959 in Düren, but considers the border area between Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands his home. Trained as a bookseller, he studied German and comparative literature at the RWTH in Aachen. Since 2007, he has been head of cultural affairs for the city of Aachen. He has since written seven crime novels in which the Euroregion with its cross-border culture and history always plays a central role.
