Why is Catarella allowed to have any part in the operation of the station? He'd be an encumbrance even if moved to toilet-cleaning duties. Why does Montalbano never seem to have any means of communicating with the rest of the force on him? It's not that he can't get a signal since he's never shown t...

As with cinema, when I’m reading something like a Camilleri novel, it’s always possible to discuss its heightened reality. You concentrate life, as one does in theater. The proscenium arch for film is its syntax. Some thoughts arise, like when discussing reality. Imagine you ask someone who is talki...

This one involves the murder of a pharmacy "informer" as well as three beautiful women, drug-involved deaths and the usual banter between Montalbano and his colleagues. Short and engaging, these novels add light relief after some of the more dark thrillers around nowadays.

Pierwszy tom cyklu o komisarzu Montalbano to lektura zadziwiająco krótka, ale niezwykle intensywna. Książka w zasadzie czyta się sama; autor posiada umiejętność takiego przedstawiania sytuacji, że czytelnik ani się obejrzy, a czytnik już mu wskazuje 35% lektury zaliczonej. Z jednej strony mamy do cz...

Montalbano at his best! As he recovers from the shooting in the last book, he is involved in a case in which a young girl is kidnapped. All is not as it seems - and I was able to partly predict what had happened (which is always a shame). Engaging and fun, this is a nice light read.

Another good Montalbano detective novel: this one, the seventh I think, involves human trafficking, 2 murders, a lot of temptation, loan sharking - without giving too much of the plot away!As usual, this author manages to write engaging and relevant stories, building up the characters and not overdo...
