Troppo poco noir
La Buenos Aires anni Trenta dei caffè letterari e quella dei bassifondi, degli immensi macelli bovini di periferia, dello scontro politico fra nazionalisti e comunisti, del “fùtbol” che inizia a diventare fenomeno di massa. Un bellimbusto che campa di espedienti, un'affascinante “suffragetta” di origine ebrea, giornalisti senza scrupoli e poliziotti corrotti, locali in cui si balla il tango, si beve vermuth e si "tira" cocaina. Persino la figura di Jorge Luis Borges come comparsa d’eccezione. E infine la morte misteriosa di una bellissima giovane dell’alta società porteña. Sono gli ingredienti del romanzo “Tutto per la patria” di Martìn Caparròs, che inizia come un bolide di Formula 1, poi pian piano, dopo metà libro, comincia a perdere colpi e alla fine taglia il traguardo sottotono, ben al di sotto delle aspettative che aveva generato nelle prime cento pagine. Innanzi tutto perché è un giallo con poco mordente: d’accordo la brillante ricostruzione storica, va bene l’innesto di temi politici e sociali, carini i riferimenti alla vita culturale dell’epoca… ma se di poliziesco si tratta, intuire come andrà a finire già a due terzi del romanzo non è davvero un pregio. Così come non lo è l’eccessivo conformismo dell’autore, che ci fa capire subito quali sono i “buoni” e quali i “cattivi” e che naturalmente tifa - spudoratamente e senza esitazioni - per i primi, inconsapevole che nel mondo del noir una delle prime regole è che i buoni non lo sono mai del tutto e i cattivi non sempre sono perfidi come li si dipinge. Ci sarà un seguito, pare.
