    Agree with mem and it can also be used as referring to a kid as one that is really making pranks...at least here in Cuba.

    I agree with both, but mostly is what Sandra said, someone that is trying to make tricks or pranks to people, and they seem to enjoy this alot, thats why the word Malandrin or Malandro , allways thinking in doing the bad.

    I am just reading an extraordinary story by Mrs Gaskell called "An Accursed Race". It is about a group of people called the Cagots, who used to be much oppressed in France and Spain. Because of this oppression, Mrs Gaskell says the Cagots prefer to be known as Malandrins.

    Here´s a detailed description of the word "malandrin". It's in Spanish, I hope you can understand it
    el arca de las palabras: Malandrín / Malandra

    Argentine slang is full of words derived from other languages, mainly italian but also french, catalan or galician. This is due to the massive immigration during the first years of XX century when thousand of people begun to mix their native language with the spanish
