Truth be told, they're highly addicting. Maybe a phrase, a line, a hint somewhere would reveal a reason, any reason, for the elderly couple's disappearance. Justice must be served - if it's the last thing she does. The series is written in Italian but with a substantial sprinkling of phrases and grammar. You'll also meet the sexy Ingrid.

Did one simply write on a sheet of paper something like: 'I, the undersigned, Salvo Montalbano, hereby declare myself to be in existence', sign it, and turn it in to the appointed clerk? My Review: Camilleri doesn't disappoint in this outing for the hapless Mimi Augello, the surprisingly astute Catarella, and the Inspector himself.
Inspector Montalbano is one smart dude who can outwit the bad guys and manoeuvre his team to produce the required results. In 2012 he received an honorary PhD from the.

Dovrei dire pronto, ma non lo dico. Andrea Camilleri born september 6, 1925 in Porto Empedocle is an Italian writer. Neither of these works enjoyed any significant amount of popularity. Highly recommend to anyone who has not come across this author. Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature in 1944, without concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories.
In this excursion, our Inspector parses out the connection between two seemingly unrelated mysteries---the death of a young man never at a loss for female companionship, and the disappearance of a reclusive elderly couple who lived in the same apartment building. This feature provides an interesting quirk which has become something of a fad among his readership even in mainland Italy. Just one bullet in the middle of the forehead killed young Emanuele 'Nenè' Sanfilippo, and since the captain of the Flying Squad and his second in command were laid up one with dysentery after a visit to Beirut and the other in the hospital in New York after a mugging , Montalbano is told that the ca Excursion to Tindari is a puzzler that will intrigue both fans of Camilleri and mystery readers in general. His investigation takes him and his team into dangerous territory involving the Sicilian Mafia. I like the way Camilleri allows all of his characters to grow and develop a bit more in each book in the series. And as he lives in the same apartment building as the elderly couple, is there some connection between them despite all evidence to the contrary? Camilleri also continues his well-defined sense of place that runs through the prior installments of this series, augmented by the richness of personalities and food found in the area.
All'altro capo ci fu un lungo silenzio. Grover Gardner did an excellent job narrating, as usual. A phone call lands Montalbano in the middle of the case of the dead man at Via Cavour 44. Although they are a gentle read, they do include some horrific crimes. This feature provides an interesting quirk which has become something of a fad among his readership even in mainland Italy.

Shortly therea I started reading this series a few years ago and then got away from them, but recently decided to seek them out again, continuing where I left off. Ingrid woman from book 1 if memory serves makes an appearance along with a doctor that is supposedly has big part in this situation. Did one simply write on a sheet of paper something like: 'I, the undersigned, Salvo Montalbano, hereby declare myself to be in existence', sign it, and turn it in to the appointed clerk? The core mysteries are enticing and well plotted, with very plausible and ingenious solutions. His team provides many interesting characters, as do the non-police members of his circle. I absolutely love this series and hope the author keeps writing them for a long, long time. And not long after Bruno discovers that Monica was traveling with a mysterious Irishman her lover? Although it is a solid installment, it was not a favorite. I think I'll be more comfortable with this series once I've read a couple more, although I was beginning to get the hang of the characters by the time I finished this.
In più il dialetto siciliano aggiunge un sano tocco di ironia che non guasta mai. A couple of old people of Vigata mysteriously disappears after making an excursion to the neighboring town, Tindari.

Ancora una volta, il giallo è magistralmente costruito, ma colpirmi al cuore, più che l'indagine in sè, sono i momenti che l'abile penna di Camilleri dedica alle riflessioni di Montalbano, alle sue solitudini stavolta seduto tra i rami di un ulivo secolare, altre volte su di uno scoglio in riva al suo mare che sembra quasi cerchino di cancellare per un attimo l'orrore e la violenza della vicenda, per voler quasi dire al lettore che la Sicilia è anche altro: è natura, cucina, passione, arte. The author captures the essence of Sicily in these farcical, witty and intriguing books. But you gotta love the guy despite his less-than-sweet disposition. And, on the personal front, Mimi Augello has just informed Montalbano that he's met a woman and is planning on marrying her, and Montalbano realizes he may be losing a good officer and a good friend. As he's delving into both investigations, he receives a call that he can't refuse: Don Balduccio Sinagra, the head of one of the two major crime families, wants him to stop by for a visit. Of course, the mafia has alot to do with it too, it's left me unclear though as why they are are involved.
