Oooh, the review here of The Potter's Field makes me want to cheat and move this up on my TBR list.

However, I have four more Montalbano books to go -- in the middle of the series -- and I want to try to read them in order.

This is too tempting though and I don't know if I can wait to read it.

Although The Potter's Field is very good in my opinion, it is probably best to read the others first, if you can bear it, Kathy!

I am not sure why they retitled the Lackberg, or indeed what the previous title, The Gallows Bird, without the apostrophe, means. I've asked around but remain unenlightened.
