Mythology and psychoanalysis in the new thriller by J. L. Blanchard

Misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia

However, according to Lamouche, “there is something indefinable about this mixture that gives it genius.” This does not prevent his colleagues from comparing the famous lieutenant to a drink consisting of the following ingredients: “an ounce of misogyny, one homophobia, another xenophobia.”

Coincidences and unexpected traces are multiplied with whoever is better is better. A little too much, according to Lamouche, who takes in the news without flinching, but it shakes in his head.

The more we progress in reading this study, the more “a strong impression of power and mystery” arises in it. The consequence accepts the sprawling ramifications like a jellyfish.

Bonnot destroys the simple past

The author likes to fill his text with a few typical Bonnot expressions, such as being in a bag or giving it to Davy, Tam and Ternam (ad vitam æternam). In the reports he writes to his boss, Bonnot uses the simple past tense… which he constantly cuts out, as in “nous constâtes.”

There is always something that exacerbates the hunger that painfully binds Bonnot. He fills up with pizza when he has the opportunity to try tripe from Pont-l’Abbe and foie pâté from Périgord. All accompanied by Montrachet, Petru or Château d’Yquem.
