'Gripping, easy to read, sometimes funny and extraordinarily romantic ...High praise' Independent on Sunday When Nuria Marti, the beautiful Spanish figure skater, is suddenly dropped from the Olympic team, a besotted admirer builds a secret ice rink for her in the ruins of an old mansion on the outskirts of their seaside town. What he doesn't tell her is that he paid for it using embezzled public funds. Such deceit is not without repercussions, and the skating rink soon becomes a crime scene ...Rife with political corruption, sex, jealousy and frustrated passion, The Skating Rink -- narrated in turn by a corrupt and pompous civil servant, a beleaguered romantic poet, and a duplicitous local entrepreneur -- is a darkly atmospheric tale of murder and its motives. 'This magnificent murder mystery wrought with voices of great urgency and yet penned with a delectable lightness of touch' List 'Elegant, elusive and amusing, this novel is more than capable of standing alongside the rest of Bolano's work' Daily Telegraph
