This is Manzini’s second novel to be translated, in-the-genre and none the worse for that. His tough-guy detective is less the intuitive maverick cop than a poor boy making good as a detective officer in a new and freezing-cold area of Italy, which requires a whole new take on footgear. Good on class within the police.
