I loved the descriptions of Venice and life there throughout the story. The author attempted to tackle tough issues in the story, but fell just a tad short in the end. Leon attempted to explore racism and immigration with the vu cumpra, but she never truly explored the world. The victim was never really given an identity, he was just a victim that Brunetti felt sorry for throughout the case. ( )

A professional hit on an African immigrant street vendor is outside the realm of the ordinary and nothing follows ordinary procedure as Commissario Brunetti is warned off the case immediately after he discovers something that compels him to keep on looking, though he must keep his efforts from his superiors.

I sometimes wonder how Commissario Brunetti doesn't end up in the loony bin, considering his frustrations with the corruption of his own country's police and government. This is one of those times when a failure to pursue a murder investigation ends up with a hidden reward. Quite compelling and a bit of a twisted trail. ( )

When an African street vendor selling counterfeit brand name bags dies, Brunetti gets called to the scene. With only American tourists as witnesses, he begins to reconstruct what happened and begins investigating the man's identity and residence. A search of the man's home reveals hidden gems of high value. However, Patta tells Brunetti to quit investigating. Two higher agencies take over the investigation. Brunetti smells something amiss. The reader is left asking questions as this one leaves many matters hanging or speculative. While I enjoyed the installment to an extent, the lack of answers left me slightly unsatisfied. I loved David Colacci's narration. ( )

In the days leading up to Christmas, an African street vendor is murdered in a crowded street in front of multiple witnesses. It looks like a professional hit job to Commissario Brunetti, but why would a street vendor be a target for this type of murder? Might it have something to do with the knock-off products they’re selling? Or is the murder connected to the victim’s country of origin? Brunetti is up against a closed world of immigrants who operate under the radar. Establishing the victim’s identity won’t be easy, let alone finding the motive for the murder.

I found this series installment less satisfactory than most of the other books in the series. I’ve come to accept that the murderers will elude justice in this series, and that Brunetti (and the readers) have to be satisfied with the knowledge of the killer’s identity. However, this book ended with more loose ends than usual. Even the victim’s identity is still uncertain at the end of the book. The answer is hinted at, but Brunetti (and the readers) have to accept that the full story will never be known. ( )

In this stunning novel, the 14th to feature the dogged, intuitive Venetian police detective Guido Brunetti (after 2004's Doctored Evidence ), Leon combines an engrossing, complex plot with an indictment of the corruption endemic to Italian society.
afegit per rretzler | editaPublishers Weekly starred review (Web de pagament) (Mar 21, 2005)
 
Leon’s most adroit balance of teasing mystery, Brunetti’s droll battles with his co-workers and higher-ups, and intimations of something far deeper and darker behind the curtain.

Weil ein Schwarzer hässlich ist.
