Maureen | 194 comments Sorry, I'm a couple of months late with this news item.
I am very sad to learn of the death of Andrea Camilleri who passed away in July this year at the age of 93. He was the author of 23 novels featuring the Sicilian detective Inspector Montalbano.

I love the TV series starring Luca Zingaretti as Montalbano and also the spin-off Young Montalbano series. Montalbano is one of my favourite detectives.

The first Montalbano novel is "The Shape of Water".

Hi Karen, I agree that Luca Zingaretti wasn't how I had pictured Inspector Montalbano. I read an article somewhere that said Camilleri had also had misgivings about Zinageretti's casting in the role, but came round later when he saw what a good actor he was.
