Description

Commissario Brunetti and his Venice police Officers solve case of murdered Sri Lankan caretaker of a palazzo. It may be her age (I believe she is 80 this year) but also the fact that the pandemic has reduced the number of tourists and at least for now has given Venice back to its citizens. Brunetti stopped involuntarily at the realization that he might not recognize Alvise if he saw him out of uniform.

An unsolved disappearance at that time becomes a clue for Guido, with the help of his colleagues, to move closer to solving the puzzle of the murdered man. During the interrogation of an entitled, arrogant man suspected of giving drugs to a young girl who then died, Brunetti acts rashly, doing something he will quickly come to regret. It leads Brunetti right to the heart of aristocratic Venice, to a family still grieving for its abducted son. What was more puzzling, and eventually a concerning part of the investigation, was when Brunetti discovered that Inesh possessed a lot of material regarding real estate, Italian politics, and past cases that involved these subjects in a potential criminal light. He said that one of the anti-marchers …’ Vianello paused to consider that word, shook his head, and went on, ‘… came running at the people in the parade, holding his sign stuck out in front of him horizontally, and deliberately ploughed into them.

The body is soon found, and Brunetti is assigned to investigate the murder of an undocumented Sri Lankan immigrant. Our understanding of Guido as a character is deepened here as we learn of his past, and how Italian political history is central to solving the murder of Kavinda. Even though I have only read these two books, I have come to notice an underlying theme beyond the mystery itself.

That a soul could have lived such a joyless life is too much for Paola to bear, and she asks Guido if he can find out what happened. The man had been living in a small house on the grounds of a palazzo owned by a professor, whose wife Brunetti happens to know. The nearest witnesses to the event are the tourists who had been browsing the man’s wares before his death – fake handbags of every designer label – but they have seen nothing that might be of much help to the police.

Years ago, some months before the birth of their daughter, he had renounced claim to what had been his study so that their second child could have her own bedroom. Brunetti interviews Kavinda's employer Gloria and several of the caretaker's acquaintances, and is told that Kavinda was a gentle man who worked hard and sent money to his wife and children back in Sri Lanka.
