As the new year arrives with its resolutions and pledges of virtue, we’re taking one last look at bad behavior. Characters abuse power and substances, dodge laws and bend the rules, and otherwise indulge their baser instincts in this survey of crimes and misdemeanors around the world. Andrei Krasniashikh’s sodden soccer fan really doesn’t know the score. Amy Yamada’s manipulative teen signs up for a risky after-school activity. Hanna Krall exposes a con woman’s ultimate scam, and Jean-Marie Blas de Robles observes the worst kind of industrial espionage. Felipe Franco Munhoz pins the blame on Faulkner; Alejandro Saravia’s immigrant deals his own death; and Guiseppe Berto challenges the gospel truth. We hope these displays of poor form get your year off to a good start.
