La mort del corredor de fons, una novel·la negra de Jordi de Manuel

Published by championchip on

La mort del corredor de fons (Edicions 62, 2012) no és cap manual de morts sobtades en el món de l’esport, sinó l’últim cas de l’inspector Marc Sergiot, “el Colombo català”, creat pel biòleg, professor i escriptor Jordi de Manuel* (Barcelona, 1962).

Aquesta vegada, Sergiot topa amb una perillosa xarxa de traficants d’òrgans que ha estès els seus tentacles fins a Barcelona. La novel.la arranca amb la troballa d’un cadàver enterrat –i gairebé buit per dins– per part d’un metge jubilat que passeja el gos per la serra de Collserola. Arran d’aquest escabrós tret de sortida, que planteja a la policia els interrogants habituals en aquests casos, La mort del corredor de fons s’articula amb una triple trama.

Per una banda, la investigació que endeguen la caporal Lídia Sánchez i l’agent Pau Ribó dels Mossos d’Esquadra, en la qual hi acaba ficant el nas l’inspector Sergiot, del Cos Nacional de Policia. Per l’altra les peripècies d’un xoriço de baixa estofa, que sobreviu donant petits cops, fins que li roba un sobre ple de bitllets a la persona equivocada. I finalment la història d’un jove magrebí que arriba a Europa seguint la ruta de la clandestinitat amb el somni de convertir-se en atleta professional i viure de córrer.

De Manuel, gat vell en el gènere negre, mou els fils de les diverses trames amb la mateixa destresa amb què mouen els fils de les marionetes els experts. Organitza la novel.la en capítols curts; dosifica la informació; accelera o alenteix l’acció, i, quan li convé, fins i tot canvia el punt de vista per tornar-nos a explicar una escena o una altra, amb el qual provoca un interessantíssim i complex joc de perspectives.

La pista que segueixen els Mossos no trigarà a complicar-se, amb l’aparició de més cadàvers. Al mateix temps, la investigació d’aquestes morts s’entrecreuarà amb una persecució a vida o mort entre un petit delinqüent i uns mafiosos implicats en una perillosíssima trama.

L’autor de Mans lliures i El raptor de gnoms ens submergeix amb aquesta nova novel.la, dura i violenta, en la crua realitat de la immigració clandestina, les màfies de crim organitzat, els centres d’acollida i el submón de delinqüència que, més o menys ocult, respira i malviu sota el maquillatge de la ciutat de Barcelona.

* Exjugador de handbol i “amb els genolls i els isquiotibials una mica castigats”, Jordi de Manuel mira de córrer uns 20 km a la setmana. Una mica més, quan fa bon temps. Corredor regular de curses populars des dels anys 90 i amb xip groc, assegura que una de les seves cites obligades al llarg de la temporada és la cursa dels Nassos; que ha corregut una vegada la Marató de Barcelona (en 3h 45’) i que “moltes idees d’algunes novel·les les he tingut mentre corria”.

Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is always that individual states in the United states of america have their particular laws which affect house owners, which makes it quite difficult for the Congress to come up with the latest set of guidelines concerning foreclosures on house owners. The problem is that each state offers own legislation which may work in an undesirable manner with regards to foreclosure guidelines.

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours.
It is pretty price enough for me. In my view,
if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you just could do with a few p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, but instead of that, that is wonderful blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
