Rosario Tijeras, Jorge Franco's eponymous novel of a violent, violated woman and two high-society youths in 1980s Medellin, Colombia, won the Dashiell Hammett prize in 2000.

"With Jorge Franco's narco-saga Rosario Tijeras [Latin America's literary movement] may have found its first masterpiece."
"Mr Franco and a slew of other Colombian authors... are publishing straightforward, darkly realistic urban novels... The works are a break with a fantastical past that has brought this new generation of writers growing success and important critical acclaim, both here and in Europe."
(Juan Forero, New York Times)
