Un procuratore duella da una vita con il molto spregiudicato sindaco di Novere, e da una vita perde: Tre grandi scrittori di oggi mettono al centro della loro osservazione la figura, carica di conflitti e tensioni, di chi ha scelto nella vita di amministrare la giustizia, per conto di tutti noi.
E si collegano a una tradizione che va da Manzoni a Sciascia, da Dostoevskij a Kafka.

Not acknowledging a concept robs that concept of it’s power.
I keep thinking about the Judge and wanting to ask him if he acted consciously or not but that would defeat the whole concept as by asking I would be acknowledging.

Each of the book’s trio of stories presents a different judicial protagonist and deals with issues of social, legal and political corruption in a country notorious for the powerful and giudkci reach of its criminal elements. As a helpful translator’s note points out by way of introduction, in Italy the term ‘judge’, rather than limiting itself strictly to the giuudici ‘Judges’, a nice anthology of novellas by three of Italy’s most accomplished crime writers, is a treat for fans of the genre.
As a helpful translator’s note camillerl out by way of introduction, in Italy the term ‘judge’, rather than limiting itself strictly to the magistrates who preside over court cases, is actually something of an umbrella term that stretches to include public prosecutors. Andrea Camilleri, renowned author of the acclaimed Montalbano series, opens the collection with a delightfully humorous story set in 19th century Sicily in the immediate aftermath of Reunification.

Judge Surra, a sweet-toothed man of underwhelming appearance and a certain wide-eyed innocence, travels from Turin camillerj restore lawful stability to the town of Montelusa. There, he quickly discovers the pleasures of the local cuisine, particularly cannoli, the ricotta-filled pastries. An assassination attempt costs him a good hat, and an arson attack on his office burns down everything but four precious files.
But while Judge Surra impresses the town with a blissfully detached calm in the face of menace, he is also possessed of a solid nerve, and a scrupulous sense of right and wrong. The second novella, Carlo Lucarelli’s ‘The Bambina’ favours a more hard-edged realism. Ina young female judge, Valentina Lorenzini, in taking up her first posting as an examining magistrates at the Bologna Law Court, has been assigned a bodyguard, camilleri veteran cop named ‘Ferro’ Ferrucci.
Her case is nothing, a fraudulent bankruptcy case, so the ambush that puts her into a week-long coma makes no sense. Ferro blames himself, but when he recognises the would-be assassin, dressed in police garb and arriving with backup at the hospital, he plucks the Bambina from her bed and secretes her with a clandestine doctor.
Cajilleri the time she wakes, her rescuer is no longer in the picture, and it soon becomes clear that nothing is quite as it seems. This novella, probably the pick of the three, is beautifully paced, ripe with tension and packing some truly hard-hitting twists.
Straight-laced Ottavio Mandati giudcii his bullying and deceitful nemesis, Pierfiliberto Berazzi-Perdico, nurture a hatred for one another camilleru back to their schooldays.
Now, Pierfiliberto is the all-powerful mayor of their hometown, Novere, involved in all kinds of dirty dealings but beloved by the people, while Mandati, as Chief Prosecutor, attempts to bring the scoundrel to justice.
But when, ahead of the latest court investigation, the mayor suffers a couple of failed attempts on his life, the case seems suddenly very complicated. For Mandati, danger insinuates even his dreams, and he needs to watch his step. I liked each account and would warmly recommend this set of novellas camillfri you that will perhaps leave you wanting more.
Three novellas about honest judges in Italy. Three short stories with judges as the main characters, all are good though the first is my favourite. Dec 30, Magrathea rated it really liked it. Racconti ni Racconti brevi. Nei tempi a venire, il giudice diventa leggenda nei ricordi della gente, incarnazione di un periodo nel quale la giustizia aveva un volto onesto, chiaro e incorruttibile. Confuso, si affida alla chiave onirica senza riuscire a padroneggiarla.
A short book containing three stories written by three different Italian writers. Having read Andrea Camilleri, I got exactly what I expected. A quick and quircky tale, set in Sicily, guudici the nature and culture of this Italian island.
Set shortly after the Italian reunification, it was an interesting historical lesson about an honest judge, written with the wry humor of Camilleri. The second story was written by Carlo Lucarelli, of whom I’ve only read one piece. Considered a master writer A short book containing three stories written by three different Italian writers.
Considered a master writer in Italy, his works are neither well known nor widely translated in America. But I did enjoy this short story, as well as the other short novel that I have read by Lucarelli. The third author, Giancarlo De Cataldo, was someone I have neither read nor was familiar with.
Again, it was a story about an honest judge, opposing the corruption of a provincial city in Italy. A more psychological bent to the story, it did not mimic either Camilleri or Lucarelli, and was an enjoyable read. Little known, this book is the worth the effort to find and a very good read.

I primi due racconti sono molto carini, il terzo un po’ meno a mio avviso. Ho, comunque, faticato molto a finirlo Gli autori sono quelli che sono per cui Jul 13, Cecilia rated camillsri liked it. A more accurate grade would be 3. Sedeva sul prodotto del malaffare. E in suo nome amministrava la giustizia. Oct 17, Ocean Gebhardt rated it really liked it Shelves: My favorite was Lucarelli’s, then Camilleri’s, then De Cataldo’s. I picked up Judges in the library, principally because it contains a story by Giancarlo de Cotaldo, the writer of one of my favourite European TV series — Romanzo Criminale.
I have yet to encounter a novel of his in English, so this was the next best thing. Judges is an anthology of three novellas by leading Italian crime writers; each story centres on an Italian Judge prosecuting a case.
The reader needs to bear in mind the investigative role of a Judge in Italy. Andrea Camilleri, renowned auth I camillegi up Judges in the library, principally because it contains a story by Giancarlo de Cotaldo, the writer of one of my favourite European TV series — Romanzo Criminale. Andrea Camilleri, renowned author of the Montalbano series, kicks off with Judge Surra.
This is a story set shortly after Italian unification, about a Judge from out of town who is parachuted into a Sicilian village, blissfully unaware of the criminal undercurrents that swirl around him. Surra seemingly blunders along, narrowly avoiding continuing disasters and amazing the locals with his sang froid and coolness in the face of the local mafiosi.
Or is he a lot smarter than camillsri might think? This is an excellent and humorous short story, but it is marred by a clumsy and unnecessary afterword. The Bambina by Carlo Lucarelli was probably my favourite story of the three. While she has police protection as a matter of routine, it seems totally unnecessary, as she is only investigating a minor white collar fraud. Events then take a turn that gives her case a lot more significance.
Lucarelli is able to surprise the reader and pack plot twists into a very short space.
The ending will make more sense to people with a bit of knowledge about real-life crime in Italy, BTW.
