Inspector Montalbano = Il commissario Montalbano

Fans of the TV series seen on SBS might be interested to know that 14 of the Inspector Montalbano books by Andrea Camilleri are available to borrow as ebooks in their English translation through our Bolinda service.

You can read about the author in this great article from the Guardian.

The novels have been beautifully translated into English by award-winning translator Stephen Sartarelli and retain their Sicilian flavour (the original books are written in Italian and Sicilian dialect) As you read them you realise how accurate the dramatizations are.

For some lucky fans it’s even possible to stay at Montalbano’s villa by the sea in the town of Punta Secca when in Sicily. One can only dream.
