George Washington Caucamán, detective de origen mapuche y gatillo ligero, es destinado a Santiago de Chile, y allí lo arrinconan en la unidad de delitos sexuales. Aunque se sienta un poco perdido y añore las tierras patagónicas, Caucamán no se deja arredrar y empieza a investigar un caso de llamadas anónimas a una “línea caliente” de sexo. Dos datos hacen especialmente inquietante el caso: la chica de la Hot Line es una exiliada que acaba de regresar al país y las llamadas parecen relacionadas con las torturas de la dictadura pinochetista.

Skæg lille 'krimi', nærmest i ugebladsføljetonstil, men med nogle sarkastiske oneliners, som går rent hjem. Kort bog - kort anmeldelse, for så er der heller ikke så meget mere at skrive... ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 846662175X, Paperback)

George Washington Caucamán, an indigenous detective with an itchy trigger finger, is sent to do rural work in Patagonia because, as his boss says, an indigenous Chilean isn't worth anything. But when Caucamán surprises a band of thieves he shoots the leader (who is the son of a general) and is banished to the capital to work in a sexual crimes division. There he focuses on the case of a series of threatening calls to a woman who works at a hot line—calls that Caucamán discovers are related to tortures during the Pinochet regime.
