The setting is post-war Vienna, a once-beautiful city that was now nothing but war rubble. It's administered by the four victorious nations, Russia, France, Great Britain and the United States, and they all communicate with each other in the language of their former enemy. There's a somber mood, a feeling of decay and destruction throughout. And, of course there's a mystery, and lots of suspense, as the reader is swept into a story of intrigue, betrayal and constantly changing alliances. --Linda Linguvic at

Der dritte Mann The third man( Visual )

25 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atmosphärisch überaus dichte Verfilmung des gleichnamigen Kriminalromans von Graham Greene, von dem auch das Drehbuch stammt. Carol Reed nutzte die Expressivität des zerbombten Wiens, um eine düstere Grundstimmung zu schaffen, in der sich Joseph Cotton und Orson Welles als ehemalige Freunde gegenüberstehen (wobei letzterer erst in der zweiten Hälfte des Films in Erscheinung tritt). Neben der spektakulären Kameraführung trug auch die berühmt gewordene Zither-Musik Anton Karas' dazu bei, daß "Der Dritte Mann" zu einem Klassiker wurde. []
