The First Prehistoric Serial Killer and Other Stories

1 Mins read

A very original take on crime short stories in this collection by the queen of Barcelona noir, Teresa Solana. Killer grannies, vengeful ghosts, a prehistoric detective turned psychoanalyst are just a few of the characters inhabiting the pages of these stories full of surprises, dark comedy and surrealist touches. The mood gets more sombre in the second part, a series of inter-connecting stories of murder and betrayal set in Barcelona, offering us a memorable and unvarnished portrait of Solana’s home town. Read the full review here.
