In the Name of the Pig

Original title: En el nombre del cerdo
Category: Fiction | Thriller & Noir
Category: Fiction | Humour
Synopsis:

On the point of retirement, Police Commissioner Pujol begins to investigate his last case: the death of a woman who has been found with her throat cut and her body dismembered as if she had been prepared by a slaughterer. In her mouth a piece of paper is found that reads in capital letters: ‘In the name of the pig’. This is the beginning of a novel that brings together protagonists like the homicide inspector T, various suspects in the case, the town’s local bigwig and Quique Aribau, author of a best-selling novel, to take part in a powerful narrative that combines mystery, psychological depth and irony. Pablo Tusset portrays a society caught between two worlds: between hell and paradise, between good and evil. The book is written with a moving tenderness, with a prodigious perspicacity and with a touch of humour.

En el nombre del cerdo ensnares the reader in its pages, hypnotized by the intrigue and by the remarkable narrative skill.
