I really wanted to like this book, but I was just too confused most of the time. I'm not even sure I know quite what happened at the end. The mystery and its resolution (whatever that was) seemed to be just a vehicle for what Sciascia really wanted to say: there was a great deal of philosophizing (about political situations and the condition of society in general) for such a short book. The book has been described as belonging to the genre "metaphysical mystery," so the problem was probably mine.
