The Shape of Water, by Andrea Camilleri
The Shape of Water is the first in the Inspecter Montalbano mystery series by Andrea Camilleri. It was translated from Italian into English by Stephen Sartarelli. Although these books have been well-read in Italy since 1994 a translation into English didn't appear until 2002. Inspector Montalbano loves good food and spends quite a bit of time fending off attractive women. He's definitely not a stickler for the rules. This was a fun, quick read.
