ShotsMag: Selects Everyone in Their Place as Shot of the Year In Translation
Date: Dec 4 2013
The annual Shots of the Year Awards selected by Shots Magazine’s Mike Ripley are announced in the December edition of his Getting Away With Murder column, and are as follows:
Shot in Translation: (from the Italian) Everyone in their Place by Maurizio de Giovanni [Europa]. Fascinating mix of Christie-like whodunit and spooky thriller set in 1931 Naples. Police detectives Ricciardi (who has a sixth sense and ‘sees dead people’) and the weight-conscious Maione make a great team, contending with a summer heat-wave, Fascist politics, the attractions of several females, the aristocracy, a curious OVRA (Mussolini’s Gestapo) agent and a society murder.
