Totenwall: Ein historischer Kriminalroman

Totenwall: Ein historischer Kriminalroman - Boris Meyn I liked this quite a bit, until the end motivation for the killer was made for him to have lost his wife to cannibalism by a New Guinea tribe. Unfortunately the people whose name was given, the Korowai, didn't even have contact with Europeans until the 1970s when this book takes place in 1910. Not to mention that I doubt the characterization of the ritual cannibalism as the racist cliche of randomly murdering and eating white European women has any basis in facts (and those were implied to be factual events, not racist, colonial projections of the time's characters).
