The Swedish Academy said it honoured the 74-year-old author ‘for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt and defeat’. Vargas Llosa has written more than 30 novels, plays and essays, including some books that can fall into the category of crime fiction, mainly:
– ¿Quién mató a Palomino Molero? 1986 (Who Killed Palomino Molero?, 1987)
– Lituma en los Andes, 1993 (Death in the Andes, 1996)
– La fiesta del chivo, 2000 (The Feast of the Goat, 2002)
Mario Vargas Llosa (Arequipa, 1936) has the double Peruvian-Spanish nationality. I highly recommend The Feast of the Goat.
