I've been reading an Italian mystery series for a while now. They're written by Andrea Camilleri and the main character is a grouchy but brilliant Sicilian police officer named Inspector Salvo Montalbano. He gets away with all kinds of things I wouldn't put up with in real life. But he's also got a gruff charm and a soft spot for old ladies and good food, so he's got an odd kind of behavioral balance.
I highly recommend these books, as much for the Sicilian atmosphere as the varied cast of characters in the Vigata police department.
But this is what I got!
Yikes! They certainly came up with a much different image of Montalbano than I had.
Just had to share...
ps~his name is Luca Zingaretti and he actually looks quite engaging when he smiles!
C’est la vie!
