Augello period già pronto in step with il 2000 mentre lui non lo sarebbe mai stato. Tutto qua. Augello sapeva che stava naturalmente trasendo in un'epoca di delitti spietati, fatti da anonimi, che avevano un sito, un indirizzo su web o quello che sarebbe stato, e mai una faccia, un paro d'occhi, un'espressione. No, troppo vecchio oramà". Sta invecchiando il commissario Montalbano? No, non è questo. E' l'amarezza in line with un caso dai retroscena sconcertanti e orrendi. E' il saluto del nuovo secolo a questo Maigret siculo, più colto, più teso e irregolare (più "nirbùso e squieto" direbbe Camilleri, nella sua lingua giocosamente protesa alla ricerca della musica più antica dell'italiano). Egli indaga tra l'immaginaria Vigàta e Tindari, il promontorio a picco sul mare "col piccolo, misterioso teatro greco e los angeles spiaggia a forma di una mano con le dita rosa". Un triplice omicidio è avvenuto - un giovane dongiovanni che viveva al di sopra dei suoi mezzi apparenti, due anziani pensionati seppelliti in casa che improvvisamente decidono una gita a Tindari. Li collega, sembra, solo un condominio. Ma Montalbano ha una maledizione, sa leggere i segni che provengono dall'antichissimo che vive nel modernissimo continente Sicilia: lo aiutano un vecchio ulivo contorto, l. a. sua squadra, l. a. svedese Ingrid, un libro di Conrad, e un Innominato senza pentimento. "La gita a Tindari", assai più di un semplice giallo (come sempre con Camilleri), ha los angeles felicità e los angeles facilità della commedia. Come se il processo ideativo e fantastico iniziasse - così credeva Aristotele - dall'occhio, dalla vista.
