El hombre ordinario, by Mariano Hamilton and Alejandro Marinelli

26595800English translation: The Ordinary Man

If this were a movie, it would be a film noir, a classic private detective movie, with a sexy secretary, a lot of smoking and alcohol drinking and such things. It’s placed in 1971, here in Argentina, and this detective is hired for the investigation of the death of a man that, apparently, was nothing but a boring, routinary, common man, and that, apparently, died in an accident during his annual solo vacation in Bariloche. Of course, it wasn’t an accident, and, of course, this guy was far from being common. It was a very good story, and I really enjoyed reading it.
