Venice crime fiction?

I'm travelling to Venice at the end of March to attend a meeting.  I'm looking for some crime fiction set in the city, preferably translated Italian fiction, but happy to take a read of any written by Anglo writers.  Any recommendations?

Rob - Have you read Donna Leon's Guido Brunetti novels? They take place in Venice.

I can't think of any translated books at the mo but as well as Leon there's Dead Lagoon by Michael Dibdin.

Thanks. I've found a guide to crime fiction set in Italy. Here's the link to books set in or around Venice (there's loads of them) - http://italian-mysteries.com/LOCveneto.html Still making my mind up as to which I'll try.
