The Marseilles trilogy, featuring ex-cop Fabio Montale, is a classic of European crime fiction. Its publication was the catalyst for the foundation of an entire literary movement, Mediterranean noir, and made its author an overnight celebrity. Europa is Proud to reissue the entire trilogy this summer in new editions that have a fresh look and feature an introduction by “the reigning king of Mediterranean noir”, Massimo Carlotto.
