This is my second Montalbano mystery, and I have to say that I prefer him to the insufferable Brunetti of Venice, both as a character and as a man It was difficult to follow all the characters, and I m still not sure where Francois fits in, but I appreciate the seriesThe one thing I do like about both series is the description of their wonderful meals no slapping a hamburger on a bun for these guardians of the law. An Inspector Montabalno mystery in which the island of Sicily is the focus of the work The harried inspector is surrounded by a bumbling staff straight out of Barney Miller, for those who remember that TV show But our Inspector relaxes with beautiful women and exquisite Sicilian food, cooked by his housekeeper, or served in his favorite restaurants In this mystery, a beautiful woman is attacked and murdered There are several suspects and the most logical one is killed almost immediately The An Inspector Montabalno mystery in which the island of Sicily is the focus of the work The harried

faceva Salvo Montalbano, e quando voleva capire una cosa, la capiva Questo capire di Montalbano, essendo fondamentalmente una immersione ambientale, un annusare, un soppesare a occhio, distante dallo spiegare deduttivo dei segugi di impostazione scientifica Ma non collima neppure col simpatetico comprendere dei detectives pi filantropi anzi per il commissario di Vig ta celebre per il laconico sarcasmo identificare la molla che fa scattare l assassinio costituisce la parte peggiore della ricostruzione poliziesca E di comprensione per chi ammazza non se ne parla nemmeno La voce del violino la storia di una giovane donna assassinata, di un grande artista che vive da eremita e d altro ancora Soprattutto, una storia di scambi e Montalbano dovr decidere se scambiare la propria esistenza per

time ago by a house burglar who d become his friend, got in his car and drove off The storm was raging worse than ever lightning bolts illuminated the sky When he reached the Twingo, he slipped his car in under some trees and turned off the headlights From the glove compartment he extracted a gun, a pair of gloves and a torch After waiting for the rain to let up, he crossed the road in one bound, went up the drive and flattened himself against the front door He rang and rang the doorbell but got no answer He then put on the gloves and pulled a large key ring with a dozen or so variously shaped picklocks out of the leather bag The door opened on the third try It was locked with only the latch and hadn t been dead bolted He entered, closing the door behind him In the dark, he bent over, untied his wet shoes and removed them, keeping his socks on He turned on the torch, keeping it pointed at the ground He found himself in a large dining room that opened onto a living room The furniture smelled of varnish Everything was new, clean and orderly A door led into a kitchen that sparkled like something one might see in an advertisement another door gave onto a bathroom so shiny it looked as if no one had ever used it before He slowly climbed the stairs to the upper floor There he found three closed doors The first one he opened revealed a neat little guest room the second led into a bigger bathroom than the one downstairs, but unlike it, this one was decidedly messy A pink towelling bathrobe lay rumpled on the floor, as though the person wearing it had taken it off in a hurry The third door was to the master bedroom And the naked, half kneeling female body, belly resting against the edge of the bed, arms spread, face buried in the sheet that the young, blonde woman had torn to shreds with her fingernails in the final throes of her death by suffocation, must have belonged to the owner of the house The commissioner s gift And what did his lordship want To tell us that in a few days, some absolutely up to date computers will be arriving Every headquarters in the province will be equipped with them He wanted each of us to give him the name of an officer we thought had a special knack for computer science.Which I did Are you insane Nobody here knows a damn thing about that stuff Whose name did you give him Catarella, said an utterly serious Mimi Augello The act of a born saboteur.Montalbano stood up abruptly, ran over to his second in command and embraced him Dinner at La Cacciatora Bring me whatever you like The Gentleman King smiled, appreciating the vote of confidence.As a first course, he served him a large dish of macaroni in a light sauce dubbed Foco vivo or live fire olive oil, garlic, lots of hot red pepper, salt , which the inspector was forced to wash down with half a bottle of wine For the second course, he ate a substantial portion of lamb alia cacciatora that had a pleasant fragrance of onion and oregano He closed with a ricotta cheesecake and small glass of anisette as a viaticum and boost for his digestive system He paid the bill, a pittance, and exchanged a handshake and smile with the Gentleman King Excuse me, who s the cook My wife Please give her my compliments Catarella s report card Chief, hear me out for jest a minute Come on in, Cat Catarella was red in the face, embarrassed and happy What s the matter Talk Got my report card for the first week, Chief The course runs from Monday to Friday morning I wanted to show it to you It was a sheet of paper folded in two All A s Under the heading Observations

that began in The Snack Thief.The story begins when Gallo, the Vigata station s official driver, picks up the Inspector to drive him to a funeral Unfortunately, Gallo suffers from Indianapolis Complex, and while driving too fast, plows into a parked car On the return trip, Montalbano notices the car is still parked Unable to sleep and bothered by the fact that the car hadn t moved and that the note he had left was still there, Montalbano later returns to the scene of the accident, goes to the owner s home, and let himself into the house It is there that he discovers the body of a woman who had been suffocated to death When the crime is reported anonymously, the police are sent to investigate Unfortunately for Montalbano, the forensics team discovers that he s left fingerprints everywhere, and on top of this, political maneuvers lead to the Inspector being taken off the case, which is handed over to the flying squad, who promptly shoot their number one suspect But do they have the right guy Complicating Montalbano s life are unfinished issues with Livia, a woman named Anna Tropeano a friend of the deceased , and all of the politics involved with Montalbano s new boss However, none of these issues put a stop to his gourmet appetite and his ongoing friendship with Clementina Vasile Cozzo, to whom Montalbano has remained as attachedas a son But what does all of this have to do with a violin Unknowingly, Clementina will help Salvo get to the truth of the mystery of the dead woman on a Friday morning, when as is her weekly custom she gets dressed up and listens to her upstairs neighbor Cataldo Barbera, a reclusive but internally known violinist, play for her.The core mystery is excellent as is the path to its solution How Montalbano deals with the problems brought on by having a new boss who hates him is one of the better parts of this book, but is a situation in which he has to enlist several of the series continuing characters With each book, returning to this group of friends and colleagues is like returning to people you ve known for a long time That s just one reason I love this series, but it s a big one And as noted earlier, this particular story is not as funny as the previous ones, but that s okay I love reading crime fiction for the crimes and their solutions, and Camilleri did not disappoint in this novel.Definitely recommended to all readers of crime fiction, whether you like your crime deep and satisfyingly bad or a bit on the lighter side In addition to a very good whodunit , I love all the food references in these Inspector Montelbano books. I don t think I ever laughed when reading a novel I mean , all the book that I ve read have the thrill and the twists, but sense of humor, that s something you don t often find in mystery novels In addition the writing is so smooth that makes you want to readI also liked the Italian food references, which made me search for them in the internet and wanting to try them.The protagonist, Inspector Montalbano is an interesting character And the events in the plot will make you engaged till I don t think I ever laughed when reading a novel I mean , all the book that I ve read have the thrill and the twists, but sense of humor, that s something you don t often find in mystery novels In addition the writing is so smooth that makes you want to readI also liked the Italian food references, which made me search for them in the internet and wanting to try them.The protagonist, Inspector Montalbano is an interesting character And the events in the plot will make you engaged till the end
