Series Aurelio Zen 10
Summary Note When the corpse of the shady Bologna industrialist who owns the local football team is found both shot and stabbed with a Parmesan knife, the seasoned Italian police inspector Aurelio Zen is summoned to oversee the investigation. Anxious for a break from his girlfriend, who attributes Zen's slow recovery from routine surgery to hypochondria, he is only too happy to take on what first appears to be an undemanding assignment. The case quickly spins out of control, becoming entangled with the fates of a student of semiotics, a mysterious immigrant claiming to be royalty, and Bologna's most incompetent private detective. Meanwhile a prominent postmodern academic accuses Italy's leading celebrity chef of being a fraud. 'Back to Bologna' delivers both comic and serious insights into the realities of today's Italy.
