    Con le sue storie Andrea Camilleri riesce sempre a creare una magia narrativa. Si sentono gli odori e si percepiscono gli sguardi. Con poche pennellate evoca i personaggi in un modo talmente vivo da renderli realmente presenti. Con pochi tratti ce li fa conoscere nella loro intimità e con le loro piccole debolezze così umane. Ma sempre con uno sguardo insieme ironico e affettuoso. Ed è per questo che finiamo per amarli: ci sembra di conoscerli, di aver fatto con loro un tratto di strada.

    While swimming along the Sicilian shore, Inspector Montalbano discovers a corpse. His pursuit of the cause of death intersects with the inquiry into a hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a young boy who may have been victimized by human traffickers. The buying and selling of immigrant children, for slave labor, sex, and as a source of illegal organ transplants, is part of the evil underside of the opening of Europe's borders.
