501 CRIMS QUE HAS DE CONÈIXER ABANS DE MORIR
Our crimes are part of our history and define us as a country. This book is obvious evidence: from 415 AC until now, this book presents 501 criminal offenses committed in the Catalan Countries that you should know before dying: murders, extortions, kidnappings, cunning deeds, ideological actions, disappearances… From Salses to Guardamar and from Fraga to Maó, from Serrallonga to Putxet’s murderer, from the Ponent’street vampire to the case of the Alcàsser’s girls, from the rapist of l’Eixample to the crime of cove Gració: the 501 indispensable crimes of our history.
“Despite the fact that here the crime has been always changing and abundant, it has been surrounded by discretion. But our crimes are also our history. We cannot deny us this acknowledgement”, from Jordi Mata’s prologue.
