Sweet money by Ernesto Mallo( Book )

Superintendent Lascano is drawn into a war between the Buenos Aires Chief of Police and the Apostles, drug-dealing cops who want to control the city. When the Chief of Police is murdered Lascano becomes the Apostles' next target. His only way out of the country is to retrieve the loot from a bungled bank robbery. Mallo paints a scathing portrait of Argentina where the Junta's generals are paraded in court in civilian clothes, treated like mere petty thieves. The mothers and grandmothers of The Plaza de Mayo see the people who have stolen their children go unpunished; corruption and violence continue to rule. But at the centre of the novel is a touching portrayal of two broken men, a cop and a robber, whose humanity is sorely tested by the times and events racking this proud country

Lo que no lograron asesinos y sicarios lo consiguen oscuros burócratas: quitar a Lascano de en medio mediante un retiro forzado de la policía. Pero la tranquilidad no es para El Perro: una millonaria lo contrata para encontrar a su nieta perdida. Las pistas lo conducen al submundo de la trata de mujeres para la prostitución. Este ámbito desolado, donde convergen los políticos más corruptos y los más despiadados criminales, pondrá a prueba la sagacidad y el ingenio del personaje que hace de cada caso una cuestión de honor. La tercera aventura del Perro Lascano está basada en una profunda investigación realizada por el autor, que pone al descubierto la red de complicidades que han permitido que la trata se haya convertido en el segundo negocio ilegal más importante del mundo

Here, Argentina's top writers explore a city influenced as much by criminality and smuggling as Borges and the tango.From the introduction by Ernesto Mallo:Buenos Aires: city of contrasts, contradictions; always on the edge of chaos; in love with its own disorder despite the crude, transitory violence, the lack of law and order, the ubiquitously hurled insult, the thunderous boom of traffic, honking, hurled curses. Its inhabitants love/hate the city. In the language of the port-dwellers, irony is currency. The multimillionaires of Puerto Madero deal in this irony with as fluently as the workers in the "misery cities," which is what we call the poorest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. This shared language comes from the mansions and the shanties that are built side by side, separate by nothing but a single street or railroad track--contradiction within eyesight...André Malraux called Buenos Aires the capital of an empire that never existed. This empire, which never existed historically, which was never a conquering force or a military or economic powerhouse, exists in the strength of its literature, born of necessity--born of the precarious nature of its politics and economy--and born of its irreverent capacity to survive

«En la más rigurosa y perfecta tradición de la novela negra, Mallo nos regala este libro para leer sin parar y sin aliento.» Ana María Shua «Una lectura vertiginosa, intensa, que provoca al pensamiento.» The Guardian «Si quiere leer una buena policiaca que, superando el marco del género, ofrezca la visión de una ciudad o un país, esta novela es para usted.» Le Monde Lascano, el Perro, un comisario de policía trastornado por la reciente muerte de su mujer, recibe un aviso: han aparecido dos cadáveres cerca del Riachuelo.
