Summary

With a murder at its heart, Roberto Bolantilde;ors"s The Skating Rink is, among otherthings, a crime novel. Murder seems to have exerted a fascination for the endlessly talented Bolantilde;o, who in his last interview, according to TheObserver , "declared, in all apparent seriousness, that what he would most liketo have been was a homicide detective." Set in the seaside town of Z, north of Barcelona, The Skating Rink is toldin short, suspenseful chapters by three male narrators, and revolves around abeautiful figure skating champion, Nuria Martiacute;. A ruined mansion, knife-wieldingwomen, political corruption, sex, and jealousy all appear in this atmosphericchronicle of a single summer season in a seaside town, with its vacationers,businessmen, immigrants, bureaucrats, social workers, and drifters.
