Entire series is top top quality

I fell in love with and started binge listening to this series, starting with The Shape of Water. I can't read Italian, but Santarelli's translations are sublime in their own right as English prose. Gardner is just perfect at delivering the mix of humor and deep feeling that makes Camilleri so moving and special. Or to put it as Gardner has Caterella saying, he's the "Chief! Chief!"
