“It is a book which can be read at different levels: as a thrilling detective story, sometimes tragic, sometimes comic, as a fast-paced farce or as a subtle political satire on military dictatorships, superpower manipulation, international finance and arms sales. It proved that by the mid-1930’s Hergé had become a master at creating multi-faceted adventures with a correspondingly broad appeal.”
