Description

José Cardoso Pires: A Balada da Praia dos Cães
(Ballad of Dog’s Beach) [translation by Mary Fitton])

Inspector Elias Santana investigates the murder of Major Luis Dantas Castro in April 1960, a few months after his involvement in an abortive military coup against the fascist dictator Oliveira Salazar. The investigation not only reconstructs events leading up to the assassination but also unmasks the political, social, and moral degradation endemic to both Portugal’s fascist regime and its opposition parties.
