Win all 27 Inspector Montalbano novels and a hamper of delicious Italian treats! 

Discover the witty and bestselling Inspector Montalbano mystery novels

"He felt hungry as a wolf. It was ten past six, not yet dinner time. But who ever said you have to eat at an appointed time of day?"

So says Inspector Salvo Montalbano, star of the warm and wickedly funny bestselling crime series from Andrea Camilleri.

Escape to a sun-soaked Sicily and join Inspector Montalbano as he takes on intriguing new cases, from run-ins with the local mafia to solving mysterious riddles, catching killers and dealing with corrupt politicians, all while finding time to sample some of Sicily's most sumptuous dishes and mouth-watering appetisers. Discover the series that has sold over 65 million copies worldwide, and make sure to look out for Riccardino, the final instalment out in October this year.

We're giving one Caboodler the chance to win the entire series of Inspector Montalbano books, plus a hamper of delicious Italian treats, including fruit-flavoured amaretti, pistachio cream, traditional cantucci, and Italian liquorice!

10 runners-up will also receive the first three novels in the series, The Shape of Water, The Terracotta Dog, and The Snack Thief
