Sarti Antonio e la Ballata per Chitarra e Coltello
Sarti Antonio and the Balad for Guitar and Knife
In a bar in downtown Bologna, there has been a shooting and the only eye-witness seems unreliable: an old man called Guitar, who gets by playing around in bars. A short while after, The Neapolitan, a mobster from a local gang, is found stabbed to death. The two crimes are connected: The Neapolitan had been the one to fire four shots in the bar and to give Guitar a brand new instrument after his had disappeared. Sarti Antonio’s investigation won’t be easy, especially since his superior is sure to have found the offender: Pasquale, a young foreigner, who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The fact that Pasquale’s younger brother’s best friend is Stecco, the teenage boy he has worked with on a previous case, does not help him at all.
