Besides there is also a book with 9 short stories: Un caso del comisario Jaritos y otros relatos clandestinos, (Ediciones B, 2006) that has been republished under the title Balkan Blues (Ediciones B, 2012). Readers should be aware that it’s the same book.

I would appreciate if you let me know of any errors or omissions.
