Review:


"Camilleri as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator."--The Washington Post

"The books are full of sharp, precise characterizations and with subplots that make Montalbano endearingly human... Like the antipasti that Montalbano contentedly consumes, the stories are light and easily consumed, leaving one eager for the next course."--The New York Journal of Books
"This series is distinguished by Camilleri's remarkable feel for tragicomedy, expertly mixing light and dark in the course of producing novels that are both comforting and disturbing."--Booklist
"Hailing from the land of Umberto Eco and La Cosa Nostra, Montalbano can discuss a pointy-headed book like "Western Attitudes Towards Death "as unflinchingly as he can pore over crime-scene snuff photos. He throws together an extemporaneous lunch...as gracefully as he dodges advances from attractive women."--The Los Angeles Times
"Montalbano is a delightful creation, an honest man on Sicily's mean streets."--USA Today

Praise for Andrea Camilleri:
"There's a deliciously playful quality to the mysteries Andrea Camilleri writes about a lusty Sicilian police detective named Salvo Montalbano."--The New York Times Book Review
"The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily."--Donna Leon
"Camilleri can do a character's whole backstory in half a paragraph."--The New Yorker
."..the humor and humanity of Montalbano make him an equally winning lead character."--Publishers Weekly
