(ANSA) - Turin, July 4 - Bestselling Italian noir author, singer and actor Giorgio Faletti, a native of the northern city of Asti, died Friday aged 63. He died of cancer in a Turin hospital, sources said. Faletti had a successful career as a TV comic and singer before turning his hand to writing in the 1990s. His thrillers have been translated into 25 languages, garnering success in China, Europe, Japan, Russia, South America, and the United States. Leading American crime novelist Jeffery Deaver has said about him that: "In my neck of the woods, people like Faletti are called living legends". Faletti garnered many honors, including the De Sica Prize for Literature awarded to him by former Italian President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi in 2005. "We've been friends forever.
I'm terribly upset," Asti Mayor Fabrizio Brignolo told ANSA. "Regardless of his fame he always loved Asti and his fellow citizens here." Faletti was also an avid supporter of Italian soccer champions Juventus, which on its website called him "an exquisite man, a faithful fan, and a sweet friend". Senate Speaker Pietro Grasso commended Faletti's homage to the forces of law and order in a song written shortly after several high-profile Mafia assassinations and bombings had shocked the country in the early 1990s. "I appreciated his discreet, unrhetorical homage to our men and women in uniform who dedicate their lives to safeguarding our State," Grasso, a former national anti-Mafia chief prosecutor, wrote on his Facebook page. "Today he left us, with the same discretion."
