En lite annorlunda Donna Leon-bok med ett överraskande slut. Som vanligt i hennes böcker växlas familjeliv med Brunettis polisarbete. En av de bättre Leon- böckerna, som varmt kan rekommenderas. Mycket dialoger i boken som är trevliga att läsa på engelska.

"The familiar characters and Venetian location are described with remarkable freshness and, as always, the edifying result is both amusing and thought-provoking" * Sunday Telegraph * "Leon's impeccably plotted, utterly involving Italian-set novels (featuring the food-loving Commissario Brunetti) have rarely been less than excellent. So it proves with the latest, The Golden Egg. Involved in routine enquiries into a possible bribery case, Brunetti hears from his wife Paola of the death of an educationally-challenged man who worked at the Brunetti's dry cleaners ... The Golden Egg is Donna Leon on top form." * The Good Book Guide * "If there's a writer for whom the law of diminishing returns has been revoked, it's Donna Leon. The doyenne of Italian crime fiction, whose stamina in returning time and again to her Venetian beat is matched only by her curiosity, she has proved herself, in the space of 22 titles, not only an able detective novelist, but the author of something more substantial ... It is one of the joys of Leon's work that she can take readers into the sinister heart of Italy, and yet, in the person of Brunetti and his companions, convince us that not all is lost." * Herald * "The introspective Brunetti, a man with a healthy sense of the absurd and a sharp eye for the fading grandeur of the city's architecture, makes for good company as he negotiates the perilous labyrinth of Venetian police office politics. Deceptively languid in its pace and a masterclass in mood, The Golden Egg ... is a meticulously crafted example of how even the most apparently innocuous of crimes can reveal a trove of history." * Irish Times * "All beautifully spliced together" * Evening Standard *
