The detective queen “Carmen Mola” received the prestigious literature award Premio Planeta for her historical thriller “La Bestia”. But when the Spanish king Felipe VI was to hand over the prize money of one million euros, three men stepped on stage, reports the Financial Times.
The trio were named Jorge Diáz, Agustín Martínez and Antoni Mercero.
The former head of Spain's national equality institute, Beatriz Gimeno, believes that the authors have committed fraud. Women have, albeit not to the same extent as in Sweden, a privileged position in Spanish cultural life.
