Andrea Camilleri Cover Gallery

Andrea Camilleri is the author of the Inspector Montalbano mysteries, originally published in Italy from 1994 and turned into a series of hugely popular TV movies from 1999. The novels were already being translated before the films began broadcasting on BBC4 in February 2012 and had already found an audience who probably (as I do) appreciate the change of pace from British crime dramas. Montalbano is an honest, decent detective but an imperfect man—he can be grumpy and sometimes thoughtless as he navigates through life. A loose cannon as far as his bosses are concerned, he walks a fine line through the shady world of the Mafia and Sicilian politics, and an even finer line in his personal life.
