« Il commissario Bordelli, un antieroe disilluso ma assolutamente autentico nelle ragioni del suo esistere. Un uomo che riconosci come vero e che non è facile dimenticare. » Andrea Camilleri « Ci piace, il commissario Bordelli, per quel clima nostalgico da ?come eravamo?, per un?attenzione, che ci ricorda i libri di Pratolini, all?esistenza e ai ritratti della gente comune... un poliziotto che ha qualcosa di chandleriano. » Giovanni Pacchiano « C?è un nuovo sceriffo in città.
