Udo Berger, escritor fracasado y campeón de juegos de estrategia, viaja de nuevo al pequeño pueblo de la Costa Brava catalana donde pasaba los veranos de su infancia. Acompañado por su novia, pasa la mayor parte del tiempo con su juego favorito: El Tercer Reich. Una noche conocen a otra pareja de alemanes, Charly y Hanna, con quien planean pasar los siguientes días. Pero cuando Charly desaparece esa misma noche, la apacible vida de Udo cambiará bruscamente.

Escrita en 1989 y encontrada entre sus archivos tras su muerte, El Tercer Reich es puro Bolaño —detectives, personajes extravagantes, y un descenso a los infiernos. En su lenguaje, en sus formas y en sus temas podemos ver el germen de futuras obras maestras tales como Los detectives salvajes o 2666.




Udo Berger, a failed writer and strategy wargames champion travels to the small resort in Spain’s Costa Brava where he spent his childhood summers to train for an international tournament. Accompanied by his new girlfriend, they befriend another German couple with whom they spend most of their time. But when one of his friends disappears after a night out with two local sinister characters, Udo’s serene life will be disrupted as he is  pursued by a private detective.

El Tercer Reich is pure Bolaño—a detective, extravagant characters, and a descent into madness—and in it we can be seen the seed of future masterpieces such as Los detectives salvajes (The Savage Detectives) or 2666. Thought to have been written in the early 1990s, El Tercer Reich was found among Bolaño’s papers after his death.
