Better than the tv version
on 12 October 2013
It`s a 4star because nothing`s perfect. The books parallel the humour of the TV programme style. Plot lines are typical of the Montalbano series, with the traditional obsessions about food, etc.
Not sure if the translation to English always works but, if you`re looking for a straightforward read, this won`t disappoint.
Not as dark as the Scandinavian crime books it`s Sicilian in it`s style & pace, more understandable if you`ve been to Sicily.
Sit back & enjoy. Good holiday / traveling read.
