Montalbano investigates a robbery at a supermarket, a standard case that takes a spin when manager Guido Borsellino is later found hanging in his office. Was it a suicide? Inspector Montalbano and the coroner have their doubts, and further investigation leads to the director of a powerful local company.
Meanwhile, a girl is found brutally murdered in Giovanni Strangio's apartment - Giovanni has a flawless alibi, and it's no coincidence that Michel Strangio, president of the province, is his father. Weaving together these two crimes, Montalbano realizes that he's in a difficult spot where political power is enmeshed with the Mafia underworld.

The great truth!

In case you didn't know, the great truth about the Montalbano mysteries is that if it seems obvious, it isn't the truth. Once again there are two mysteries that need solving but each is very convoluted and takes a lot of astitution and creative diligence to get to the truth. Enjoy this mess even as it drives you nuts!
I don't speak Italian, so I can only admire Sartarelli for his work of translation.
Grover Gardner continues to be excellent as narrator.
