4.07 based on 138 ratings & 20 reviews on


The first three irresistible instalments in the Inspector Montalbano series from the bestselling Sicilian author.

'The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humour, and the sense of despair that fill the air of Sicily. To read him is to be taken to that glorious, tortured island' Donna Leon

'Montalbano's colleagues, chance encounters, Sicilian mores, even the contents of his fridge are described with the wit and gusto that make this narrator the best company in crime fiction today' Guardian

'For sunny views, explosive characters and a snappy plot constructed with great farcical ingenuity, the writer you want is Andrea Camilleri' New York Times

'A magnificent series of novels' Sunday Times
