This series just keeps getting better. Montalbano has mellowed with age, but still manages to be a pain in the ass and a deeply humane person. Camilleri gives us the right mix of plot, mystery, and politics. And,as always, food plays a starring role.

Most mystery series begin to get a bit stale after seven or eight novels,but this series has gotten better with each new release.

The translation by Sartarelli was a joy, as always.
