I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
The story is heating up, but slowly. There's a smiling ex-spy and some torture (pulling out fingernails). The 511 Kinderheim stuff is obviously connected to the main story, but Grimmer is new.
I'm dying to know what's on that tape. What did young Johan say about his past?
