My way of joking is to tell the truth. It's the funniest joke in the world.
George Bernard Shaw. John Bull's Other Island.

In 1936 Germany and Japan sign a treaty with two oil companies: The two countries divide among each other the oil exploitation in Siberia. The diplomatic courier carrying the German ver­sion of the treaty from Tokyo to Berlin dis­ap­pears while crossing the Soviet Union tra­vel­ing on the Trans-Siberian Railroad.

Nearly seventy years later Jack Boulder, a Canadian liv­ing in the Swiss city of Ba­sel, is asked by the German For­eign Office to trace the ori­gi­nal copy of the treaty.

Berlin Export

Difficile est saturam non scribere.
It is difficult not to write satire.
Juvenal. Saturae I, 30

You may not be able to change the world, but at least you can embarrass the guilty.
Jessica Mitford.

Two German tourists die in traffic accidents in Egypt. Their bodies are used to transport a huge amount of dollar bills into Germany. Why are the re­spon­sible German authorities not in­ter­est­ed in this case?

In the guise of a Canadian journalist Jack Boulder is sent to Egypt by a minor German secret service to inquire about the background, traveling with a German government minister's delegation.

Unintentionally, an airline phy­si­cian gives Boulder a lead that finally takes him to Spain. Ap­pa­rent­ly, money trafficking is but a sideline in the context of events.

Occident Express

I hate things all fiction … there should al­ways be some foundation of fact for the most airy fabric —
and pure invention is but the talent of a liar.
Lord Byron in a letter to his publisher John Murray — London 1817.

Προαιρεῖσθαί τε δεῖ ἀδύνατα εἰκότα μᾶλλον ἢ δυνατὰ ἀπίθανα.
Prob­able im­possi­bi­li­ties are pre­fer­able to im­prob­able possi­bi­li­ties.
Aristotele. Poetics. 1460A; c. 335 BC.

The third volume in the series … the year is 2006. Russia and its billionaires promise riches and an au­spi­cious future, for many the country has become the land of the rising sun, not least for German media czars and politicians.

It begins with an accident in Greece, follows man-hunts along dusty railroad tracks in the Middle East, and fi­nal­ly ends with a fur­n­iture truck in Swi­tzer­land.

Once the toothpaste is out of the tube, it is awfully hard to get it back in.
Harry Robbins Haldeman. Water­gate and Re­la­ted Ac­ti­vi­ties. 1973.

The year is 2010. Some high-ranking diplomat in the German Foreign Office seems to have an eccentric hobby: vintage and antique stamps, mostly of the times of the German Reich, between 1871 and 1945 — and the period following until 1990. He steals them in the archives of the Foreign Office.

However, when his office is searched secretly, no trace of these stamps can be found. Nor does he sell them — anyway, they are not very valu­able. What happens to them?
