entire TV film series actually there are 2 of them one is called the Young Montalbano and is nearly prequel to all of these I could read quite quickly In about 75% of the cases I knew the outcome because of the film versions But reading some of these gave me conduit to passage for the under characters and all kinds of locale eyes and info that deepened the tales They did for me It also gave me some excellent and farminutia of placements sensibilities for about the two Mafia families and their murder count rivalry scored like a soccer game overview Muchthan the film versions do These are the most Southern Italian fare in their nuance and thought process to physical movement pieces that I have ever found to read Outside of just a few others like Christ Stopped at Eboli you do not get the eye or hand messages wordless and many paragraphs deep if that was put into words from most Italian fiction presently at all There is some of the levels of effusions sense of emotive as in Ferrante, but it is not mired within the sources of dire or accepting of continual failures and the most simple base material frugal standards that is core Sicilian Not the silence of the unsaid and understood like in the Sicilian.These factors all exist in this set by Camilleri And also Montalbano s independence and solitary nature fit perfectly into Vigata Meri becomes replaced by Livia No explanations Well Livia does stick And the perfect meal from the sea by the ultimate cook eaten alone is just like an altar Of course.Some of my favorites here arecase centered than Fazio, Mimi, or Montalbano featured supreme They let the under characters and main principles in the play outs just shine And without explanations of an English who dun it type exercise with 1000 words per motive or emotion you get it without the words at all Possibly just the act As in the story of the long married couple who practiced grieving Or the girl become woman become matron who cannot ever live down her reputation and so solves the gift I have never given to any man ultimate response to her spouse A truly Sicilian solving too Or the one I remember most from the films the story of the hob nailed boots all 50 pairs of them left in perfect leather forms and highest end soles and metal by the GI s who ditched, abandoned, had stolen, or just forgot about all that good stuff left behind in 1944 45 Why are there only 40 pairs left all these years later Oh I wish I could have some of those Rice Balls An enjoyable first book on Montalbano s cases, with a crisp plot and heavenly descriptions of food A tad bit meandering at times, since it doesn t aim to have in depth character studies like in ones from PD James or Dorothy Sayers or Louise Penny, so the 100 pages maybe wee too much Nevertheless, a good read and I would recommend it to fellow mystery police procedural fans My Rating 4 5 This prequel to the wonderful Inspector Montalbano mystery series by Andrea Camilleri will be read eagerly by all his fans, and is a great starting point for those who have yet to read any of the books In it, we see a young Montalbano when he first arrives in Vigata We get to see him choosing his home We get to

a young Montalbano when he first arrives in Vigata We get to see him choosing his home We get to see him finding all the best restaurants in which to eat and learning to work with the rest of the staff in the police station and a journalist at the local television station We watch him take his first tentative steps as an inspector with lawyers, Mafia families, and witnesses who don t want to talk or who want to talk too much All the pieces are there, except for two Montalbano has yet to meet Livia and we get no chance to meet the delightful Catarella personally in person As a story, I rate it highly I loved seeing Montalbano in the early stages of his career, yet there was something that bothered me, and I didn t pinpoint what it was until I d finished reading the first chapter The book just didn t sound right, and that is because it has not been translated by Stephen Sartarelli After eleven books, Sartarelli s translation has become Camilleri s voice to me, and the difference is quite noticeable Of course, it won t be obvious to anyone who has not read any of the other books in the series, and I will hasten to say that Gianluca Rizzo and Dominic Siracusa have done an excellent translation of Montalbano s First Case It s just different and took me a while to become accustomed to it.At roughly 100 pages in length, it s also disappointingly slim, even for a concise stylist like Camilleri I do value it, however, for its brief look into the earliest case of Montalbano s marvelous career, and I do recommend it to anyone who has yet to sample one of the best mystery series going The novella s title refers to Salvo Montalbano s first case after his promotion to chief inspector at Vig ta, which involves an illiterate young girl thought to have tried to assassinate a judge But Salvo soon realizes there s muchto the case than meets the eye.Author Andrea Camilleri packs a lot into the book s 97 pages, which readers new to the series will appreciate However,

inspector at Vig ta, which involves an illiterate young girl thought to have tried to assassinate a judge But Salvo soon realizes there s muchto the case than meets the eye.Author Andrea Camilleri packs a lot into the book s 97 pages, which readers new to the series will appreciate However, longtime fans will be amused at how the maverick Montalbano begins his tenure with his typical disregard for rules and procedures, and they will enjoy Montalbano s first encounter with the arrogant Cuffaro family, one of two crime families which run Vig ta particularly in light of the 12th novel in the series, The Track of Sand, in which the Cuffaro crime family plays a prominent role The novella a prequel to the series will delight anyone interested in a humorous but well thought out mystery I

August heat in the Montalbano series Montalbanos First Case Other StoriesIf you enjoy Andrea Camilleri s detective Inspector Montalbano, then this book is for you, even if the stories will be familiar to those who have watched the TV series This is also Camilleri s personal anthology of those short stories, and all readers are treated to the rich prose and imagery that he uses, that is even better than the views one gets from the television series.From Salvo s first case when he had not yet been appointed to Vigata and was about Montalbanos First Case Other StoriesIf you enjoy Andrea Camilleri s detective Inspector Montalbano, then this book is for you, even if the stories will be familiar to those who have watched the TV series This is also Camilleri s personal anthology of those short stories, and all readers are treated to the rich prose and imagery that he uses, that is even better than the views one gets from the television series.From Salvo s first case when he had not yet been appointed to Vigata and was about to become the new Chief Inspector of the town How he would have to learn about the two mafia crime families that were involved in the time and how he would have to keep his wits to keep the police on top and solve the crimes.The wonderful thing about this book is the descriptions of the food, and his fondness especially for sea food which reoccur throughout the book Then there is a whole short story, out of the 21 in the book that is called Rice Balls, which any lover of Montalbano means Adelina s arancini To tempt us further with the food there is a rough guide how to make said arancini If only Camilleri wrote an additional book called the food of Montalbano stuffed full of the recipes I am sure it would be a best seller.Throughout the book that humour and the excellent formula that Camilleri uses to blend Montalbano, his team and the people of Vigata together is evident, though because these are short stories cannot build on it as he usually does All the team are here in the book and we even get to see Catarella Solve a case.Altogether this is a fine collection of stories that all fans of Montalbano will enjoy, and recognise some of the stories, but that does not detract from the reader Through the pages we get a richer flavour of Scilly if not the full pictorial views a TV episode can give us.The stories in this anthology have been selected by Andrea Camilleri and gives a wonderful insight in to his famous character, how he developed and how he became the Inspector we all love This really is a great read that you can read each story quite quickly and keep coming back to the book.This really is a great book for all fans of Montalbano that you can dip in and out of and get maximum value Great back story for one of my favorite literary characters the other stories all very clever as well *Ebook ✔ Montalbano's First Case ↹ Prequel to the international bestselling Inspector Montalbano series Montalbano is thirty five years old and still a bit na ve and there are plenty of criminals ready to take advantage of his inexperience Montalbano s First Case details our hero s early years as a deputy inspector While the story involves no bloody crimes, devoted readers are sure to find the scenes and sensations not to mention the dose of spine chilling suspense that they have come to expect from Andrea Camilleri 3.5 It turns out to be very long, with so many stories bundled with the title novella, and not always even Some charming moments, though but his novels aresatisfying to me. I left this copy in the exchange library at the Crane, so can t refer to it for a review, but certainly loved the short stories The one when Montalbano stepped away to call the author was perfect I didn t think I could go on with that story either Somewhere along the line, I wondered whether there were too many women being victimized, but if I went back and counted, I suspect it would be balanced or close.
