In Italian.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Something about a burglary at a bank that’s been open for just three months strikes Salvo as odd. Its 60 safety deposit boxes (a lot for such a small branch) have been raided and the bank manager, the resonantly named Barracuda, looks shifty.

Very little escapes the gaze of Salvo’s lovely milk-chocolate eyes, not least the comely and remarkably forthright Stella (whom he’s met before), the manager at another bank. She sets her cap at young Montalbano now that lovely, drippy Livia has gone and won’t take no for an answer as she sets about fracking his tonsils in a series of breathy clinches.

It’s a silly, sunny adventure in a series that asks nothing of us apart from an open heart, the belief that a fortune-teller holds the key to a murder, and a sentimental streak the width of an autostrada.
