The tenth Aurelio Zen mystery sees the world-weary Venetian detective in Bologna to investigate the apparently straightforward murder of a local industrialist.. Dazzlingly plotted, with a cast of idiosyncratic characters, and, although often comic in tone, this delivers the usual serious insights into the realities of today's Italy.

Dibdin, as so often is the case, offers us Italy herself as one of the main characters of the novel. In this instance, it is a whimsical (even madcap!) take on Italy and some of her obsessions: politics, romance, traditional cuisine, football, reality TV, noir gumshoe detectives, even a thinly-disguised caricature of semiotics professor-turned-bestselling author Umberto Eco.

Unusually light, almost comedic installment of the normally rather dark Aurielio Zen series.

About all that I can say about this book is that I stopped reading it after about three pages because the author's language would have made a sewer blush.
