LoveReading View on The Snack Thief

More mysteries for Inspector Montalbano to investigate and in this third book we see slightly more of the personal side of our protagonist as his relationship with Livia develops. Still lots of food mentions to savour and if they make you peckish check out the notes at the back of the book describing some of the dishes further.

The Snack Thief Synopsis

Never has Inspector Montalbano's character - a unique blend of humor, cynicism, compassion, earthiness, and love of good food - been more compelling than in The Snack Thief. When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler is machine-gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily's coast, only Inspector Montalbano suspects the link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautiful Karima, an impoverished house cleaner and sometime prostitute, whose young son steals other school children's mid-morning snacks. But Karima disappears, and the young snack thief's life - as well as Montalbano's - is endangered when the inspector exposes a viper's nest of government corruption and international intrigue.
