Very dark "black novel"
4 May 2002 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

If you like "roman noir", and you are able able to read French, search for Auguste le Breton's "du rififi chez les femmes". I suppose I have the first edition, 1967. You'll see that technology changed a number of things in Europe, but that the crime scenes are about the same, even when the dolls are mixed up in it up to their throats. The book makes for compelling reading, now and again. Unfortunately, the film is rather more sedate, but still watchable if you get in Antares/Travelling video in their collection "les immortels du 7ème art".
