really liked it
bookshelves: italy, mystery
Read in July, 2009

This is a great mystery. With an obvious nod to L'Etranger by Albert Camus, Sciascia further shows how the contemporary Italian detective fiction writer understands the existential detective. This is more than just film noir caricatures. It is short, taut and to the point. This means it is not the encyclopedic mystery of the equally great Umberto Eco's Name of the Rose. But it's another wonderful example of the thinking detective with a no-nonsense attitude.
