Synopsis
It is stranger than fiction and worst than a horror movie. Set in Medellín, La Virgen de los Sicarios is a shout of protest against the violence destroying Colombia. The protagonist, Fernando, has a lover who is killed, and Fernando unwittingly takes up with the youngster who did the killing. The killings typical of the real Medellín are taken to the absurd in a dark, sharp book that blames the church and the political elite for Colombia s tragedy.

Description in Spanish: En Medellín, una de las ciudades más violentas de la tierra, un Ángel Exterminador recorre las calles limpiándolas de una buena parte de sus habitantes, y librando, de paso, al narrador de lo que parece molestarlo más: el prójimo. Alexis, el ángel, es un chiquillo de las barriadas, un sicario o asesino a sueldo, sin padre y sin ley. Poseído por el misticismo de la destrucción, su vida avanza sobre charcos de sangre. Y en tanto las iglesias, mudos testimonios de una religiosidad antigua, se vacían de fieles, la morgue se llena de cadáveres. Fernando Vallejo es escritor, cineasta y biólogo colombiano nacido en Medellín y radicado en México, donde ha filmado tres películas y escrito la totalidad de sus libros. Viaje alucinado por la realidad colombiana de hoy, La Virgen de los Sicarios ha sido llevada al cine por el director Barbet Schroeder con guión del propio escritor
