We will discuss Black Run by Antonio Manzini. With his Clark’s desert boots and his Roman ways, Deputy Prefect of Police Rocco Schiavone is a fish out of water in the Alpine town of Aosta, where he has been transferred for disciplinary reasons. Contemptuous of his new home and its reserved citizens, the brusque detective comes alive when a mangled corpse is found on one of the pistes above the ski resort of Champuloc. Working to identify the body and find the killer, Rocco deals with incompetent underlings and petty superiors, grills meek postmasters and arrogant ski instructors, and beds the local women who find him alluring in spite of his crankiness.
