Dieter is a character in Hannibal Rising. Dieter is a high ranking member in Vladis Grutas' human-trafficking ring. He stays alongside Grutas primarily, handling whatever tasks are given to him and is with him when Murasaki is kidnapped. When Grutas moves Murasaki into the boat where he had previously kept his slaves, he has Dieter drive with the slaves to Marseille. Here he's to sell the women to a man named Achmed, being instructed not to "bite the women, bite Achmed's gold".

Due to Grutas dying, it's unknown what happened to Dieter following the events in Paris.


  • Dieter is the one who grabs Hannibal during the struggle at Grutas' house, having a gun placed against his head. After Hannibal's trap goes off, the first man is pushed off and Dieter is thrown into the tub where flammable liquid had been poured in (to kill Grutas earlier). The tub is immediately ignited however...Dieter is later seen unharmed out at the guard house.
