Sergio Olguin brings us book three of his Veronica Rosenthal Mystery series. Currently available in Spanish, the English translation is currently scheduled for release on September 20, 2022. I was delighted to receive an advanced copy for review.

Sergo Olguin There Are No Happy Loves Book Review Translation no hay amores felices

Olguin sets the third installment in this series in Buenos Aires where Veronica Rosenthal encounters a man who is seemingly the sole survivor of a car accident. However, he is convinced his wife and child also survived but his wife has abducted his child. Meanwhile, in the port of Buenos Aires, a routine search of a truck turns up unexpected cargo: human remains.

Veronica Rosenthal is a wonderful, complex character. And Olguin’s new installment uncovers deeper layers through this study of Argentina’s rich and complicated political and religious history.

The translation by Miranda France is very well done. The language is well edited for the English reader without compromising the Latin spirit of the story.

This is my second book by Sergio Olguin and I’m looking forward to more.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

About Sergio Olguín

Sergo Olguin There Are No Happy Loves Book Review Translation no hay amores felices

Sergio Olguín was born in Buenos Aires in 1967 and studied Literature at the university in that city. He has been working as a journalist since 1984. He founded the magazine V de Vian, and was co-founder and the first director of the film magazine El Amante. He has collaborated in the newspapers Página / 12, La Nación and El País (Montevideo). He is editor-in-chief of the magazine Lamujerdemivida and head of culture for the newspaper Crítica de la Argentina. He edited, among others, the anthologies The best Argentine stories (1999), The Argentine selection (2000), Cross to the jaw (2000) and Written with blood (2003). In 1998 he published the book of short stories Las Grecias (Vian Ediciones) and in 2002 his first novel, Lanús, republished in Spain in 2008 (Andanzas 647). It was followed by Filo (2003, Tusquets Editores Argentina) and the youth stories The Dream Team (2004) and Springfield (2007), translated into German, French and Italian. Dark monotonous blood deserved the V Prize Tusquets Editores de Novela, according to the jury, for the magnificent resolution of a plot of obsession and double standards, of passion and social conflict, in which the protagonist is involved, a man willing to go beyond all the limits for an unspeakable relationship.
