Police Story
Minnesota_Reid11 May 2022
Another solid addition to the ranks of excellent crime thrillers from Spain, which has produced a good number of them in the last decade.

An energetic young police detective transfers to a sleepy seaside village, hoping the sun and surf will be good for his young daughter's health. But he doesn't fit in well with the lazy, corrupt local police. And whatever really happened to his predecessor, whose death has been hushed up?

This is set in the twilight years of Fascist rule in Spain, so there are election tensions, right wing violence, Basque separatists, drug overdoses, and a closed community of mysterious rich German emigres. Early on, our hero notices and stops a terrorist action, whose story also takes time to unravel.

Highly recommended.
