Lots of blood has been spilled for a long time. Heaps of blood. Too many years to deny it. Currently, the Catalan noir novel is living an excellent moment and keeps on committing crimes non-stop: corpses, autopsies, forensic, detectives, policemen, municipal guards, journalists, criminals, assassins, thieves, arrested persons, poor and posh people… all of them occupy already the scene of the crime in Catalan.
If you don’t believe it start reading Crims.cat. In this anthology you will find seventeen usual suspects of the noir genre in Catalan. A heterogeneous group to keep in mind when it comes to talk about this kind of narrative. Seventeen tales of different sort with one common element: the love for the noir and criminal genre.
