No-one Loves a Policeman

by Guillermo Orsi

Black humour, plot and characters worthy of Raymond Chandler plus a background as true to Argentina in the 21st century as its famous tango, 'No-one Loves a Policeman' will be enjoyed by those with an interest in the country or in crime noir. Thoroughly recommended.

Toto and Ayala got out, opened the boot, and came back with two rifles each.
'They're Yugoslav,' Toto said.
'But be careful, they might be Argentine,' Ayala warned. 'During their war we sold the Croats shiploads of old scrap with their serial numbers changed. If they are Argentine, they could easily explode on you.'
Translated by Nick Caistor
