Customer Review

on October 4, 2013
Like other readers, I came across Montalbano by chance and was compelled to read all of the other books within weeks. There are so many fascinating streams that run through each book; the interaction between the recurring characters (great to see Ingrid return), especially Montalbano and his suave sidekick Augello - the jealous petulance is witty and makes you love Montalbano even more. I love the references to food, relying on Steven Sartarelli's notes at the back which are a clever inclusion. It's perhaps not the best storyline of the series, as you will no doubt work it out before Montalbano, but the quirks (where else would inflatable dolls fit neatly into a script) and wit make it thoroughly readable. I would suggest that new readers start at the beginning as you need the background of each character to appreciate their roles. Unlike so many books that you read, no character is a filler - they are all cleverly and intrinsically linked to our fabulous protagonist. Without doubt, my favourite series of books!
