The Myth of Heracles Spinos
 Nikos Kounenis

328pp.
Metaichmio, 2009
ISBN: 978-960-455-546-8

A television journalist and media star who is up to his neck in the state’s corrupt dealings decides to emulate the feats of his mythological namesake Heracles. In his case, however, each feat will mark a further descent into baseness. Who could possibly want to kill him? Why, just about anybody. As The Myth of Heracles Spinos unfolds in a series of hilarious episodes, Nikos Kounenis satirizes a society that has long since exceeded all limits and is unable to remedy its shortcomings. In The Myth of Heracles Spinos, Nikos Kounenis has written a social parody that pulls to pieces the conventions of crime fiction without sacrificing the element of suspense. He uncovers the kind of villainy that regularly shakes up the political scene in southern Europe and not only there. This is a Greek comedy but it is made of ingredients that will be recognizable anywhere in the world.
