Graham Greene to my mind somewhat stuffily separated his narrative books for much of his career into two categories fiction and entertainments such as this noir novel The Third Man The book was written or at least published after the screenplay he produced for the film by the same name 1949 directed by Carol Reed featuring Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles I saw the film decades ago and since I was reading all these mysteries and detective fiction and because I had just reread two of his finest novels The Heart of the Matter and The Power and the Glory I thought I would listen to the novel from a celebrated novelist I admire but the only thing available on my audiobook service was this adaptation for the stage of the screenplay Since two of the actors include Kelsey Grammer and John Mahoney Frasier I jumped and enjoyed I just don t see the distinction between novels and entertainments great writing is great writingThe Third Man is a really well written thriller short and taut and efficient about a crime ring that sells penicillin on the black market in Vienna in the aftermath of World War II Novelist Holly Martins is haunted by the news of the death of his friend Harry Lime who had offered him a job Who killed Lime And why Or is he possibly still alive Martins enlists the help of Anna Schmidt Lime s girlfriend There s some great dialogue and some happy surprises along the way The focus of the criminal material also not surprisingly for the Catholic Greene involves an ethical concern The children who are victims of Lime s diluted penicillin become brain damaged as a result of meningitisLime at one point confronted makes a brutal and heartless case for arguing in favor of greed over the dots human beings the masses the countless poor he observes from a several stories high perspective You know what the fellow said in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare terror murder and bloodshed but they produced Michelangelo Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance In Switzerland they had brotherly love they had five hundred years of democracy and peace and what did that produce The cuckoo clock Highly recommended though I will add a note about the film later soon to be reviewed Maybe better to see the film then read the screenplay or novel

Rollo Martins incurable ladies man and author of trashy novels set on The Wild West accepts an invitation from his best friend Harry Lime and arrives in Vienna just in time to attend his funeral But what s really happened Seemingly accident but testimony from eyewitnesses and Harry s new friends are to tell the truth not credible So Rollo like a noble sheriff from his own stories decides to solve the mystery Well easier said than done With empty pockets friendless in strange city it seems to be practically unfeasible But as ones say fortune favours fools and Rollo by a happy coincidence mistaken for a known writer gains time accommodation and some money So he goes into townVienna beautiful city vibrant with life full of monuments and green parks resounded with Strauss music No no we don t get Vienna like that In Greene s novel Vienna divided up in four occupation zones is a real ghost town leveled to the ground with Great Wheel on Prater overlooking the ruins It is simply a city of undignified ruins which turned that February into great glacier of snow and ice To put it mildly that what Rollo would know about Harry was not too flattered Involved in under the counter trade what s worse dealing in diluted penicillin Harry this charming witty Harry A racketeer No it can t be true But if The Third Man then is a depressing story enhanced by picture of destroyed city with some unexpectedly amusing moments to mention Rollo s soiree It s a story about disillusioned man exposed criminal and broken friendship Poor Rollo Poor all of us when you come to think of it But poor Harry
