Boxer, Beetle by Ned Beauman

Boxer, Beetle has two stories on two different timelines that are linked by accident: one story is about Fishy, named so because of his affliction, trimethylaminuria, which makes him reek of fish. He finds Nazi memorabilia for paying costumers. One day he stumbles across a dead body and in the apartment of corpse he finds correspondence from Adolf Hitler to a Doctor Erskine. The second story is the story of Erskine and a Jewish boxer - and gradually those two stories unite. The writing style is easy to read, and the story grasps you and draws you in.
