The readhead (La pelirroja)

Exile is not enough for the most feared murderer.

Juan Luis Higuera arrives in Cuba under the façade of one of the many Spanish executives who set in the island during the 90s. Behind those glasses and that bland physical appearance, a ruthless serial killer who has committed numerous crimes in Spain is hidden.

In the desolate Havana of the so-called “Special Period in Time of Peace”, Higuera finds new targets to proceed with his huntings among the well-known “jineteras”: women involved in dirty business, such as prostitution.

This is how he gets to know Nilda Almeida, a beautiful sex worker who has a sui generis relationship with Pedro Andux, an alcoholic and marginal Angola war veteran who earns a living through the carving and selling of wooden sculptures.

When Nilda is found dead, Andux undertakes a personal crusade to find the murderer of her beloved. The ex-warrior will have to face the mysterious notary from the Basque Country.
