Read full description of the books:
L'inchiesta più dura del commissario Montalbano comincia con un cadavere pescato per caso in alto mare. L'incrocia Montalbano mentre nuota al limite dello stordimento per lavarsi di dosso una notte di cattivi pensieri e malumori. I fatti politici, certi eventi di repressione poliziesca, l'atteggiamento verso gli immigrati: tutto cospira a farlo sentire un isolato, forse superato dai tempi, e il cadavere anonimo, destinato com'è a restare senza pace di giustizia, archiviato da banale caso di clandestino annegato, gli sembra armonizzarsi macabramente col suo senso di solitudine. Per il commissario è una sfida, che lo scuote dal proposito di dimettersi, e lo spinge per la rischiosa strada di un'inchiesta doppia, su delitti apparentemente indipendenti e accomunati solo dall'infame ferocia che lasciano immaginare. Due casi da «convergenze parallele», li definirà: due linee che pur destinate a ritrovarsi in un punto, si rifiutano di farlo: qualcosa, di enigmatico, di inquietante, di resistente, impedisce agli indizi di sistemarsi nel puzzle, lasciando i due casi, appunto, paralleli. La verità che aspetta, alla fine il commissario, sarà di quelle di inaccettabile orrore, che cambiano per sempre una persona. Anche uno come il commissario Montalbano.

Read information about the authorAndrea Camilleri (born september 6, 1925 in Porto Empedocle) is 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. Around this time he joined the Italian Communist Party.
From 1948 to 1950 Camilleri studied stage and film direction at the Silvio D'Amico Academy of Dramatic Arts, and began to take on work as a director and screenwriter, directing especially plays by Pirandello and Beckett. As a matter of fact, his parents knew Pirandello and were even distant friends, as he tells in his essay on Pirandello "Biography of the changed son". His most famous works, the Montalbano series show many pirandellian elements: for example, the wild olive tree that helps Montalbano think, is on stage in his late work "The giants of the mountain"
With RAI, Camilleri worked on several TV productions, such as Inspector Maigret with Gino Cervi. In 1977 he returned to the Academy of Dramatic Arts, holding the chair of Movie Direction, and occupying it for 20 years.
In 1978 Camilleri wrote his first novel Il Corso Delle Cose ("The Way Things Go"). This was followed by Un Filo di Fumo ("A Thread of Smoke") in 1980. Neither of these works enjoyed any significant amount of popularity.
In 1992, after a long pause of 12 years, Camilleri once more took up novel-writing. A new book, La Stagione della Caccia ("The Hunting Season") turned out to be a best-seller.
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 name Montalbano is an homage to the Spanish writer Manuel Vázquez Montalbán; the similarities between Montalban's Pepe Carvalho and Camilleri's fictional detective are remarkable. Both writers make great play of their protagonists' gastronomic preferences.
This feature provides an interesting quirk which has become something of a fad among his readership even in mainland Italy. The TV adaptation of Montalbano's adventures, starring the perfectly-cast Luca Zingaretti, further increased Camilleri's popularity to such a point that in 2003 Camilleri's home town, Porto Empedocle - on which Vigàta is modelled - took the extraordinary step of changing its official denomination to that of Porto Empedocle Vigàta, no doubt with an eye to capitalising on the tourism possibilities thrown up by the author's work.
In 1998 Camilleri won the Nino Martoglio International Book Award.
Camilleri now lives in Rome where he works as a TV and theatre director. About 10 million copies of his novels have been sold to date, and are becoming increasingly popular in the UK and North America.
In addition to the degree of popularity brought him by the novels, in recent months Andrea Camilleri has become even more of a media icon thanks to the parodies aired on an RAI radio show, where popular comedian, TV-host and impression artist Fiorello presents him as a raspy voiced, caustic character, madly in love with cigarettes and smoking (Camilleri is well-known for his love of tobacco).
He received an honorary degree from University of Pisa in 2005.
