In this 1974 novel by Heinrich Böll, housekeeper Katharina Blum becomes involved with Götten a man wanted by the police for robbery.   She helps him escape and then is investigated herself.

Due to the intervention of Die Zeitung, a fictitious newspaper based on Bild, journalist Tötges carries out interviews with everyone Katharina knows including her mother in hospital who dies the next day.

Tötges report of Katharina Blum portrays her as a revolutionary communist;  she takes revenge by inviting him to her flat and then killing him, whereupon she hands herself in.

Intended as an indictment of an over-intrusive and lying press, the novel is written in the form of a report by the narrator who introduces other sources of information into the narrative.

Not an easy read, the novel is a valuable one and one with clear parallels to the issues dealt with in the Leveson report in the UK of late.
