This thesis aims to point out the differences in the construction of female characters in the contemporaneity and its dialogue with the black detective stories and the image of fatal woman in three novels published by the writer and screenwriter Marçal Aquino. The analysis focus on, respectively, Paula and Cecília, from O invasor (2002), Elaine and Marlene, from Cabeça a prêmio (2003a), and Lavínia, from Eu receberia as piores notícias dos seus lindos lábios (2005).Thus, we can observe how literature takes mythological, psychological and sociological aspects in order to establish a character model that undergoes changes and never ceases to exist. The vision of the woman as a deity who carries good and evil in herself, as portrayed by good part of mythologies and religions around the world, represents her closeness to nature, her ability to raise children and her power of seduction. This duality can be noted in medieval idols, and also in literature and modern cinema, as a recurrent example of being able, at the same time, to generate and destroy the life of men with whom these women have some kind of relationship. In view of this, the questions we formulated are:(a) what traits support the fatal woman setting of each character?; (b) what aspects stand out in the roles women play in the destruction, complete or partial, of their partners?; (c) what kind of elements are maintained and altered from the features of these characters in police narratives of the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries?; The study is based on texts written by Antonio Candido (1995), Fábio Marques Mendes (2015), James Wood (2017), Regina Dalcastagnè (2012), Tânia Pellegrini (2008, 2014), Tzevetan Todorov (1973), Paulo de Medeiros e Albuquerque (1979), Ernest Mandel (1988), P. D James (2012), Sandra Reimão (1986; 2005), writings on the mythical and religious figure of the femme fatale, by Camille Paglia (1992) and Jennifer and Roger Woolger (1994), and the social studies about the woman and the feminine gender of Simone de Beauvoir (2009), Roberto Damatta (1997), Pierre Boardieu (2003) and Mary Del Priore (2005).
