I have to admit that every time it has come up it has gone over my head. That is difficult to do given that I could find out about what it is. I just have never found a reason to want to know what kafkaesque was or if it was a person. I think there are better ways to say "a really screwed up situation involving legal and criminal matters" in plain English.
