Who Killed Palomino Molero?


Who Killed Palomino Molero? by Mario Vargas Llosa, winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature


Somebody tortured and murdered Palomino Molero, then left his corpse impaled in a tree. But who would have wanted to do this? Everyone interviewed by Silva and Lituma, the two policemen investigating the case, said that Molero, a singer with an enchanting voice, was naive and innocuous. Their investigation will lead Silva and Lituma to a nearby air force base and will expose the racial hatred in Peruvian society between whites and cholos (mixed race people).
