Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption. The Girl Who Played with Fire. Book 2. Mikael Blomkvist, crusading publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled genius hacker Lisbeth Salander.

A young African immigrant, who may have been a victim of human traffickers, is killed in a hit-and-run accident. And Montalbano realises that he might have handed inadvertently the young boy to the traffickers.
Haunted by guilt, Montalbano forgets to submit his resignation and gets involved in two seemingly unrelated investigations.
In this book, perhaps, the sense of humour of Andrea Camilleri is most obvious despite the topics covered: police brutality, human trafficking and of children in particular; thus showing that humour is not at odds with the seriousness of the issues. Specifically the scene in which Montalbano drags the corpse found floating in the sea is really funny. I can only regret that, each time, I have less books yet to read of this series. A highly enjoyable read, as usual.
Una lectura muy agradable, como siempre. Probablemente, uno de los mejores de Camilleri.

They were covered in blood, probably stabbed. No weapon has been found. The doors were locked, and there was no window open or broken. There is also something weird in the house. A number of holes in the walls, no clue who made them or why, a lot of baby monitors -the children had passed the age for baby monitors-, and at least two audio devices and five video cameras by the number of chargers found on the bedside table, but there could be more.
The story is told in the first person by the main character, Detective Kennedy himself. At first he is quite arrogant. Gradually we will be discovering some aspects of his life that makes him more likeable. The tone is initially a police procedural. Then it becomes a whodunit. Finally, the emphasis is on the motives of the crime whydunit. I can not say that I have not enjoyed this novel, but neither has excited me. Finally, I was left with mixed feelings.
