Description
A distinctive and beloved presence in European detective fiction, Andrea Camilleri's Sicilian police inspector has become a favorite here as well, and these first five books in the series provide an excellent introduction to an unforgettable sleuth. With his sardonic take on small-town Sicilian life, his gustatory predilections, his delicate balancing act between the official and unofficial worlds he inhabits, and his genius for deciphering the most enigmatic of crimes, Inspector Salvo Montalbano has won millions of fans worldwide. First appearing in Italian in 1994, and in Stephen Sartarelli's superb annotated translations since 2002—as well as in an Italian-language television series starring Luca Zingaretti—Andrea Camilleri's sly and witty series "breathes out the sense of place and the sense of humor that fills the air of Sicily" (Donna Leon).

"With his eye for beautiful women, his taste for fine literature and a tendency to stop in his tracks to indulge in a meal, the idiosyncratic Montalbano is totally endearing."—NYTimes
