Lost in Translation?

I'd like to give the author the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps this is a much better novel in the original Italian. The characters are flat and unsympathetic. The plot is implausible and silly. In short, skip it.

The best Inspector Montalbano yet

I thought the first three books in the series were good but this fourth one is the best yet.

Montalbano's character is developing nicely with each new story. The plots get better and faster paced.

The only criticism I can offer is that the voice of Catarella is strangely (New) Jersey accented, I suppose for the benefit of the American audience (of which I am one). It does get the idea across but is a bit discordant. A small annoyance. I hope it changes in future installments.

Highly recommended!
