As with most things Italian, this story exudes atmosphere. It has an engaging inspector in Montalbano. Lean yet literate, this series is sure to gain popularity in the U.S. as it already has in Italy.

Publisher Comments:

Inspector Montalbano, praised as “a delightful creation” (USA Today), has been compared to the legendary detectives of Georges Simenon, Dashiell Hammett, and Raymond Chandler. As the fourth mystery in the internationally bestselling series opens, Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim’s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.

Synopsis:

Montalbano's gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the many suspects is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to this crime.

ost.uni, January 12, 2009 (view all comments by ost.uni)
Voice of the Violin is a character driven police procedural, not that there is anything wrong with its plot. Inspector Montalbano is as crafty a cop as you could hope to meet, but he also has a well rounded personal life, especially when it comes to enjoying fine Sicilian cooking. His investigative team is likable and entertaining, with quirks of their own. And those who populate this particular case, the murder of a stunning young woman, are equally engaging, from the victim's attractive best friend to a reclusive violin virtuoso to the little boy Montalbano plans to adopt. Camilleri is adept at portraying the seamy side of human nature, and Montalbano has been around long enough to maneuver the Italian maze of government, politics, and organized crime. Intelligent and entertaining.
