Format: Paperback
Bought this after reading The Independent's review. I agree that the murderer (a vengeful heroine) recalls in some ways Lisbeth Salander in Stieg Larsson's trilogy. But writing is absolutely brilliant, elegant and stylish. I have to say that I really enjoyed it.

A mixture of low-quality porn and slapdash crime narrative. A particularly bad conclusion. Not recommended.

A Femme Fatale Stops to Smell the Roses 16 July 2013
By propertius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Less a murder mystery and more an intense psychological story, this novel takes you through a maze of twisted female misfits. There does not to be a well-adjusted female character in this book and that would have been a nice contrapposto view to this very sick world.

There are Viola and her abusive lover Marco, Eva, sexually repressed, almost infantile in her family relationships, and her friend Guila, manipulative and hyper- narcissistic. The worlds they inhabit vascilalte between normal though male oriented and the bizarre milieu of sex, drugs and fetishism. How the male influenced world defines all the women in this book, even the secondary characters e.g. Guila's mother, are in the orbit of men is the unstated leitmotif.

Men are potrayed as predatory, abusive, sexually abusive, simplistic. And this is the one major drawback in this book and why it is a mystery secondarily. The two "main" male characters are Inspecor Marconi and his partner Frolli. Frolli is mainly a foil for Marconi. As for Marconi, he simply does not ring true. His actions in a disco are laughable unless you view them from a woman's perspective which is lampooning all the pick-up lines of the 70's and 80's. At least I hope they have been relegated to the past. In fact he never solves the crimes. The solution is given to him by women. Although give Barbara Baraldi a round of applause for depicting a rape scene in which the victim is male and the rapist is female. You'll be shocked even as you laugh, perhaps the only comic scene in the book (this may be controversial depending how seriously you take the motivations of both the female rapist and the male victim)

Fast-paced curiously mesmerizing, very atmospheric, it almost harks back to the novels of Patricia Highsmith except here justice triumphs, sort of. Even though there is this lack of balance, once you start reading this book, the reader will want stop only at the last page.
