Este era un día para la alabanza, para los buenos pensamientos y los recuerdos gratos, para la aflicción y el compañerismo entre políticos. El discurso del antiguo líder del partido, con sus pausas y algún que otro carraspeo, se filtraba sordamente a través de la madera de la sólida puerta. Una mujer susurraba tensamente y resoplando, como si en realidad quisiera gritar, pero le pareciera poco adecuado teniendo en cuenta la ocasión. Yngvar estaba a punto de hacerse notar cuando oyó: —¡Eso a ti te importa una mierda!
Ay, si todos aquellos que creían que la conocían, y que sabían a lo que se dedicaba, hubieran tenido la más ligera idea… Muchos de ellos se dejaban cegar por el éxito, a pesar de que vivía en un país en el que la humildad era virtud y la soberbia el más mortal de todos los pecados mortales. Se le puso la piel de gallina y se acarició el brazo izquierdo con la mano fría; iba notando lo compacta que era, lo adherida que tenía la carne al cuerpo, firme y encerrada, como si la piel le quedara un poquitín pequeña.
La mujer tenía la mirada azul y despierta, Yngvar percibió cierta curiosidad en el modo en que ladeó la cabeza mientras se pasaba la copa de una mano a otra. Luego se recompuso asintiendo levemente con la cabeza. —Ojalá consiguierais llegar al fondo de este asunto —dijo antes de volverse hacia la habitación en la que Kjell Mundal, el líder recién sustituido del partido, estaba encaramado a una tribuna oratoria que probablemente le hubiera prestado algún hotel del vecindario. Quisiera daros a todos cálidamente la bienvenida aquí a nuestra casa, de Kari y mía, con ocasión de esta ceremonia que hemos considerado importante y correcto celebrar.
