El protagonista de esta obra aparecio en dos novelas anteriores, El misterio de la cripta embrujada y El laberinto de las aceitunas. En ambas, se requirieron los servicios de este interno en un hospital psiquiatrico para resolver sendos problemas policiacos. En la tercera entrega de la serie, el protagonista - que es obligado a dejar el hospital psiquiatrico ya que el director quiere vender el edificio para convertirlo en viviendas de lujo- logra encontrar a su hermana en la Barcelona Post-olimpica. Esta le procura un trabajo en una peluqueria de senoras, donde pronto se ve envuleto en otro misterio que ayuda a resolver. Otra novela satirica de Eduardo Mendoza, que logra hacer sonreir, y en el que el lenguaje barroco del narrador es perfecto para describir las situaciones inverosimiles que este protagoniza. ( )

The story is a satire on big business and politics disguised into a cleverly woven and wildly funny detective story. The main protagonist- a lunatic and petty criminal - turns out to be much more sane, intelligent and honest than anybody else. The book can also be read as a satire on itself and a detective story in general. I really liked this book. It made me chuckle out loud. It took me a while to get used to the language of the narration: convoluted sentence structure punctuated with sentence fragments that were to mirror the convoluted and complex tale of the lunatic turned petty criminal turned hairdresser. It easily took over the other four books that I was reading at the time. ( )
