Donna Leon – Commissario Brunetti series

I was in a library and I was looking for some books to read. I went to the criminal section and found these ones. Donna Leon is the author of the international best-selling Commissario Guido Brunetti serries. In serries are 25 books. I just finish the third one. Main caracter in a story is a Commissario Guido Brunetti, a police officer, genius detective. We get to know him well and his family to. The crimes in stories are interestnig, evolving and its never what would you expect in the beginning. All the stories happens in Italy in Venice (Europe). First book is ok, it gets little slow, but in my opinion others are better. So don’t give up at first one.

Sumarry of book 1:

There is little violent crime in Venice, a serenely beautiful floating city of mystery and magic, history and decay. But the evil that does occasionally rear its head is the jurisdiction of Guido Brunetti, the suave, urbane vice-commissario of police and a genius at detection. Now all of his admirable abilities must come into play in the deadly affair of Maestro Helmut Wellauer, a world-renowned conductor who died painfully from cyanide poisoning during an intermission at La Fenice.

But as the investigation unfolds, a chilling picture slowly begins to take shape–a detailed portrait of revenge painted with vivid strokes of hatred and shocking depravity. And the dilemma for Guido Brunetti will not be finding a murder suspect, but rather narrowing the choices down to one.

Enjoy, M.
