Picked up from the exchange shelf of the Library of Vuosaari in Helsinki. I don't speak Italian, but I am planning to travel there in September, if the corona virus hysteria has died down. Italia seems to be the most affected European country at the moment, over 600 dead.

As there won't be a trip to Italy this year (the number of Corona deaths there is over 33 500), I'm finding the book a new home. Enjoy!

Thank you very much for the book, Kirjakko! I read this book in 2004 and I have been sorry that I gave the book away - in fact two copies. At that time I was able to journal in Italian:
"Quando ho trovato il libro nella libreria ero tutta eccitata perchè aveva già visto qualche film di Montalbano. Ho cominciato leggere il libro lì e sorprendendomi alle prime parole in dialetto siciliano. Avevo già sentito parlare del modo di scrivere di Camilleri ma non avevo mai letto qualcosa di suo. Ho letto solo due o tre libri in italiano. Direi che il dialetto siciliano non è facile di capire per non-italiano.
Per me è stata una cosa inaspettata anche il fatto che non si trattasse di un caso unico ma di uno diverso per ogni capitolo.
11.9.2004 Io sono brava - bravissimo! Ho letto tutto il libro. A me è piaciuto molto. Fortunatamente io ho ancora due altri libri di Montalbano - in italiano."

I remember the last episody: Gli arancini di Montalbano. After having eaten those riceballs in Sicily I wanted to read those pages again and now it is possible. In fact I read them yesterday evening. I think I'll read the whole book. Now I understand Italian much better than 16 years ago, even if I can't write it. Well, I could use the Google translator as a base and correct myself the worst errors. In Taormina the arancini were not balls but more like cones as the Mount Etna.
