Leon, Donna: Suffer the Little Children (15.06.09)
After a somewhat untypically violent opening, the continuing tales of Commisario Brunetti settles down the more normal espansive narrative with well-wrought scenes of family life interspersed with the criminal investigation (or should it be the other way round). Well up to the high standard of previous works, the only jarring note for me was the dialogue between Brunetti and the victim of the initial violence which brings the story to a close. While the denouement was anticipated in that it had been all but spelt out, the way it was laid out was not to my liking.
