Reactions and Reviews
There are very few Mort-centric fics around. This story handles both the quirky tone of the character along with his, briefly mentioned in canon, concentration camp backstory. The author does a great job at maintaining Mort's voice in both then and now, as well as the brief appearance by Lieutenant Welsh. The usualness of the present day scene violently contrasts with the flashback to his time at Auschwitz, and the shift in tone partway through works very effectively. The events in flashback are both powerful and dark (Author's warnings included above) with a very visceral, disturbing edge. Yet Mort is still Mort, and his actions in the last scene at the morgue reaffirms not just his survival but himself as the slightly odd, opera-singing coroner that he is.
