The face of the Colombian literature in the last twenty years has changed and next to the poetics of magical realism new discourses emerged expresing the changing social, cultural and ideological values. One of them represents Fernando Vallejo’s novel Our Lady of Assassins. Another contemporary discourse represents other Colombian writer Sergio Álvarez whose novel 35 dead was published in 2011 in Bogotá, respectively almost 20 years later. He works very similar issues as Vallejo, like urban violence, drug cartels and hired killers, but he also has given life to a special protagonist, called “loser“. The aim of this paper is to compare general features of both protagonists and to suggest that in loser a new type of protagonist has appeared, and not only in the Colombian literature.
