I have already started Andrea Camilleri's The Terra-Cotta Dog. This humorous/serious book has a special attraction for me. More than one hundred years ago my grandfather and grandmother on my father's side immigrated from Sicily. According to family legend, my grandmother gave birth to my father (who would have been 107 this year) the day after she got off the boat.
So I am looking forward to reading about Sicilian Inspector Montalbano.
Already, the book as been a joy with a mixture of humor and police procedure in a place where they do things differently than we do.
