Stereotyped as the land of crime and intrigue, Italy has been the setting of many international best-selling mysteries. Politically committed, narratively sophisticated, and supremely enjoyable, the best Italian mysteries explore the dark side of Italy’s present, challenge ideas of justice, and seduce readers with the evocation of la dolce vita. We will discuss Testimone inconsapevole (2002) by best-selling writer as well as former anti-Mafia prosecutor Gianrico Carofiglio. In this legal thriller, the defense lawyer Guido Guerrieri takes up the case of a migrant worker accused of the murder of a child. As well as offering a compelling plot line the novel offers a privileged window onto Italy’s conflicted modernity and multi-ethnic present.

Required reading: Testimone inconsapevole by Gianrico Carofiglio
