Aro Sáinz de la Maza

Aro Sáinz de la Maza (1959) lives in Barcelona, a city that habitually serves as a setting for his novels. He currently combines his writing career with that of an editor and proofreader. He started the devastating series starring inspector Milo Malart with The Barcelona Murders (RBA, 2012, Destino 2020), his first crime novel, which received a Special Mention of the RBA International Crime Novel Award. The outstanding popular reception and press reviews was reaffirmed with the publication of the novel in France (Le Bourreau de Gaudí, Actes Sud, 2014), where Malart is considered with the classics of the genre and with the works of prestigious contemporary writers, such as Jo Nesbø and Philip Kerr.
