'And always the dirty snow, the heaps of snow that look rotten, with black patches and embedded garbage...unable to cover the filth.'
Nineteen-year-old Frank - thug, thief, son of a brothel owner - gets by surprisingly well despite living in a city under military occupation, but a warm house and a full stomach are not enough to make him feel truly alive in such a climate of deceit and betrayal.
During a bleak, unending winter, he embarks on a string of violent and sordid crimes that set him on a path from which he can never return. Georges Simenon's matchless novel is a brutal, compelling portrayal of a world without pity; a devastating journey through a psychological no-man's land.

A journey into the soul of a psychopath.
The narrator riddles the path with tentative options but these do not lead to salvation. The distant voice prepares the reader for the only possible outcome, the tragic.
