Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Gorky Park is a mystery novel published in 1981 and written by Martin Cruz Smith. A Film of the Book, directed by Michael Apted and starring Lee Marvin and William Hurt, was released in 1983.Arkady Renko, a Chief Investigator with the Militsiya, finds himself investigating a gruesome crime scene in one of Moscow's most popular parks: Two men and a woman, shot dead, with their fingertips cut off and their faces disfigured to prevent identification. It isn't long before a team from the KGB become involved, led by Major Pribluda, a long-time thorn in Renko's side. The mystery only gets deeper from there with the added involvement of an American sable importer, a Russian political dissident, an NYPD Detective, and more than a few of Renko's superiors in Moscow.Arkady would go on to be the protagonist of several more novels, even as the Soviet Union collapsed and The New Russia came into being.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

Defective Detective: Renko is a workaholic, very cynical (especially in regards towards the Communist Party and their declarations), and is a chain smoker.

Foreign Cuss Word
 Gorky Park / int_38a1e0eb
comment
Foreign Cuss Word: Averted due to the Translation Convention, but the Militsaya detectives are fond of a phrase that translates back to English as "Fuck your mother". After the third or fifth utterance of this phrase between two friends, the narrator stops to clarify that they aren't actually referring to each other's mothers, but rather are using a phrase not unlike the English "Son of a bitch!" to express exasperation.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })

Break the Cutie: Irina comes pre-broken by way of backstory. The murder of her friends doesn't make it any better for her.

Fingerprinting Air: Averted: Renko and Detective Kirwill are dusting a woodshop for fingerprints. Another character points out a pile of rags that they missed, and both detectives dismiss them as being impossible to lift prints from.

Double-Meaning Title: A trademark of the Arkady Renko series of books. In this case, Gorky Park refers both to the name of the park that the three bodies are found in, and the name of the asylum that Renko is held at for the last part of the book.
