Praise for Andrea Camilleri and the Montalbano Series. Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano mysteries might sell like hotcakes in Europe, but these world-weary crime stories were unknown here until the oversight was corrected (in Stephen Sartarelli’s salty translation) by the welcome publication of The Shape of Wate. his savagely funny police procedura. rove that sardonic laughter is a sound that translates ever so smoothly into English.

Andrea Camilleri (born september 6, 1925 in Porto Empedocle) was an Italian writer

Andrea Camilleri (born september 6, 1925 in Porto Empedocle) was an Italian writer. He is considered one of the greatest Italian writers of both 20th and 21st centuries. Originally from Porto Empedocle, Sicily, Camilleri began studies at the Faculty of Literature in 1944, without concluding them, meanwhile publishing poems and short stories. In 1994 Camilleri published the first in a long series of novels: La forma dell'Acqua (The Shape of Water) featured the character of Inspector Montalbano, a fractious Sicilian detective in the police force of Vigàta, an imaginary Sicilian town. The series is written in Italian but with a substantial sprinkling of Sicilian phrases and grammar.

The Shape of Water (Italian: La forma dell'acqua) is a 1994 novel by Andrea Camilleri, translated into English in 2002 by Stephen Sartarelli. It is the first novel of the internationally popular Inspector Montalbano series. Silvio Luparello, an engineer, developer, and aspiring politician from an aristocratic construction family, dies of a heart attack while having sex with his nephew and lover Giorgio at his beach house.

Inspector Montalbano. Penguin (Non-Classics) (1998). has long been a staple of both Italian and German best-seller lists. It's easy to see why: Camilleri captures that special blend of lethargy, cynicism, and reluctant commitment that drives the best fictional Italian cops (. Michael Dibdin's Aurelio Zen). Salvo Montalbano, police inspector in the small Sicilian town of Vigata, has a potentially explosive case on his plate: a local politician has been found dead in his car, apparently the victim of a heart attack.

By Andrea Camilleri Translated by Stephen Sartarelli. About The Shape of Water. By Andrea Camilleri Translated by Stephen Sartarelli. Part of An Inspector Montalbano Mystery. You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven’t read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxyge. ransporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano. Finn, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window.

I have read all 18 of Inspector Montalbano's books with Stephen Sarterelli's effortless translations. I started at # 1 The Shape of Water and was hooked. The location of Sicily is an evocative character. Montalbano's eating habits are contagious. His crew of policemen are both comical and quietly efficient in a place where nothing much works or makes sense. His encounters with the opposite sex are either comical or tragic, sometimes both. The way he solves crimes and sometimes catches the perpetrators is compelling. Each story builds on the previous experiences as the reader gets closer to Montalbano and understands him better.

But the main attraction is the writing itself even though you are never aware of just how sparse and evocative each sentence can be and how graceful and original each story evolves.

There is a definite format that each story takes, predictable in certain circumstances but still intriguing enough to make you want to read more.

The Shape of Water is the first of author Andrea Camilleri's Commissario Salvo Montalbano series, set in a fictional town of Vigàta. The series has proven so popular that it has boosted tourism in Sicily and there is even a tour of Porto Empedocle on which Andrea Camilleri based his novels on.

A couple of things that you need to know: you don't need to read the series in order, but it helps if you read for character. As with any initial foray into a series, this first outing is not perfect, but it is very promising. It is a fast read but don't think that means "mind candy." I read for character and I forgive on plot, unless the plot is ridiculous. Other things you should know: Montalbano is Camilleri's homage to Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, a Spanish author who created a lusty detective and gourmand, Pepe Carvalho. Salvo loves his food, loves his girlfriend (roller-coaster relationship), and is fiercely loyal to his friends: womanizing Mimi, the klutzy but loveable Catarella, and the too-much-information Fazio, and he has a hate/subversive relationship with the cast of bureaucrats around him. Dr. Pasquano expresses his exuberance for the day he can do Salvo's autopsy. Salvo likes to interrupt the man's card games to get the clinical findings early.

Be ready for contemplative swims, some profanity, and an introduction to southern Italian culture (not the Sopranos). Last but not least, each novel comes with explanatory notes from the dedicated translator Stephen Sartarelli. I've attempted to read the author in the original; and it's a challenge. Andrea Camilleri is a man who writes with a particular Italian that he has Sicilianized and caramelized. Read for the ride and you might get hooked.

Fun, witty and engaging. The Shape of Water takes you right into Sicily, as if you are watching first hand as Inspector Montalbano has to play all the little delicate games of politics and social etiquette to follow his instincts that the death of a local important figure is more than it first appears. Inspector Montalbano is an police detective, but who knows that life in daily life in Sicily, with pimps and Mafioso and of course, having a nice meal, are all important things to be aware of. The investigation in the story is carried out with delightful charm, as the inspector has to be careful what information he shares and with whom. Everyone wants him to close the case, and at one point he ever gets word that the Pope is threatening to ex-communicate him if he does not close the case. There's an easy manner to the story, as if one just accepts that life in Sicily is not so simple.

The humor is so delightful with such an Italian twist. At one point someone comes over for dinner and when the guest finds out that Montalbano's housekeeper made the dinner, he warns Montalbano he should be careful, afterall, Montalbano did arrest both of the housekeeper's sons and they are in jail. But Montalbano says so casually that surely she understands, and besides, how is going to replace her with someone who cooks so well. This book was utterly delightful and a good detective novel to boot. I will be reading more of the Inspector Montalbano series.

Book One of the Inspector Montalbano series had me smiling and I will certainly read more.
This Inspector is one of the good guys in a society where corruption is part and parcel of everyday life. He approaches this somewhat naively at times while other instances he sees through instantly and is able to move at speed to the next problem that needs to be solved.
The story is quite complex with a large number of characters but there are reminders and sufficient depth of characterisation that the reader not put off by the complexity but instead persists to the end.
Sicily is a very different part of the world and the descriptions of the various settings involved in this mystery are detailed and interesting.
