Amara Lakhous orchestrates an array of conflict by setting a pig loose in a mosque in Turin, Italy. The Muslim community, animal rights activists, and right-wing xenophobes have irreconcilable views on what should be done about the very Italian piglet owned by a Nigerian immigrant. An Italian journalist, Enzo, tries simultaneously to solve this issue alongside a murder mystery concerning Albanians and Romanians. With an exciting plot, witty humor and a sharp eye, Lakhous unravels a tale about multicultural Italy.
