Michael Dibdin RIP

At 60, after a short illness Michael Dibdin passed away on march 30th. The creator of the Venetian born inspector Aurelio Zen series will be sorley missed since i will be shortly running out of Zen books to read. Although his first book 'Ratking' didn't catch my breath as for example a James Ellroy novel does there was always a special atmosphere which attracted me to continue reading the series : politics in Italy, Zens problematic relationships with the different women in his life, the fact each book is set in a different part of Italy,... Ah i think i'll read my yearly Zen novel starting this Eastern weekend.You can read The Guardians obituary here. Ciao mr. Dibdin.
