He Seemed Like Such a Nice Boy
On Thursday in Calella de Palafrugell, all the talk was of Tano, the local bar-owner/artist who was apparently in cahoots with the second-most wanted Nazi in the world. In June, Tano received a wire-transfer for some 170,000 euros from the son of Aribert Heim (also known as "Dr. Death") that, according to the artist, was payment for some paintings. At a sandwich shop just off the beach, Pilar and Lola talked at length about what a great guy Tano is: friendly and kind and a regular in their Tai Chi class. Pilar thought he was in a photo she had, but wasn't sure. And then she said that she had heard he and his wife had bought a huge house in Palafrugell. "So you never know," she sighed.
