> Carlo Lucarelli's 'Almost Blue' is one I would recommend. With its
obsession with sound and its colourful killer I would say it's the closest I have seen a book come to an Italian 'giallo' (movie, that is).
I second this nomination. The way the blind Simone's listening is
portrayed is fascinating. And, Lucarelli (and his translator)
accomplished something that resonates for me because, as a rule, I
tend to skim or outright skip the italicized chapters from the
killer's point of view and I didn't want to do so with this one.
There was a City Lights English version of it released a few years
back, so it shouldn't be tough to find either.
