Canada’s own Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Murder

If  you have seen the Swedish movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo you know it involves a murder in a wealthy family living on an island. The similarities may end there but I couldn’t help but think of it when I read about the murder of Stefano Savioli, an artist living on the island of Cortez which lies between the mainland and Campbell river in BC. A peaceful man with no known enemies, Stefano spent his days painting colorful portraits of residents and scenes of the island. Mr Savioli came from a wealthy Italian family who made their fortune in the hotel and tourism industry after World War II but you would never know it looking at his life on the quiet island.
