A cold death
Manzini, Antonio, 1964-2016
Articles
In an elegant apartment in a chilly Alpine town a cleaning lady makes a gruesome discovery: the body of her employer hanging from a chandelier in a dark room in an apparent suicide. Working the case is Deputy Police Chief Rocco Schiavone, banished from his beloved Rome to snowy, small-town Aosta. An incurable cynic, perpetually at war with the world - and the weather - Rocco is unconvinced that Esther killed herself. Armed with his intuition and his inimitable brand of morality, he begins to hunt for a killer. But as he digs deeper into Esther's life Rocco is increasingly troubled by personal matters: his dissatisfied girlfriend Nora; the very vocal memory of his deceased wife, Marina; and a score that still needs settling back in Rome.
