Raul Argemi

Raul Argemi (1946) is an Argentinian crime fiction writer, resident in Barcelona, Spain. He has obtained several awards in Spain, including the Dashiell Hammett Prize, and his work has been translated into French, Italian, Dutch, and German.

My latest book acquisition has been Retrato de familia con muerta (Roca editorial, 2008) winner of the L’H Confidencial Award, 2008. I’m planning to read it for my participation in Ficciones 2011 Argentina Reading Challenge.

You can find additional information at Mundo Andino and a list of his books at Wikipedia. Unfortunately they have not been translated into English yet, as far as I know.
