"Mörder unter uns" war der ursprüngliche Titel des berühmten Films von Fritz Lang, der das Thema der Gewalt in der frühen expressionistischen Prosa einleitet. Am Beispiel von zwei beruehmten Erzaehlungen - "Die Ermordung einer Butterblume" von Doeblin und "Der Irre" von Georg Heym -, wird die labile Grenze zwischen Normalem und Abnormalem erforscht, die gerade in jenen Jahren wichtige Impulse bekam.
