Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions by Mario Giordano

Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions

Mario Giordano

I found this a genuinely funny crime novel, in which a Bavarian Mma Ramotswe meets Commissario Montalbano. A perfect feel good read, especially recommended for older women (like me) not yet ready to give up on romance.

Poldi gripped the musket even tighter and aimed the bayonet at the intruder. 'Don't move. Down on your knees or I'll run you through.'
In German, or rather Bavarian, because excitement had robbed Poldi of her fluency in Italian and she felt it would be counterproductive, under the circumstances, to stammer.
