R.I.P. Aurelio Zen

A sad post-script to my recent column about international detectives and their ilk: the BBC reports that Michael Dibdin, the creator of Italian Inspector Aurelio Zen, has died at the age of 60. Here's an overview of the Aurelio Zen series, an interview with the author at January Magazine, a remembrance by J. Kingston Pierce, and an elegantly written obituary at The Telegraph.

Godspeed.
