This second series of feature-length episodes continues to bring light to the stories that make up the man – Montalbano’s tumultuous relationship with his father, his growing friendship with Augello and the blossoming story of his love for Livia, not to mention his skill for unravelling the most complex and grizzly cases with the help of the clumsy and adoring Catarella.
Based on Andrea Camilleri’s iconic early novels and served with all the atmosphere, antagonism and antipasti loyal fans have grown to love, this is classic Montalbano, and not to be missed!

"A rare thing: a crime thriller that teased and circled its prey, rarely breaking into a sweat. Fans of subtitled Euro treats, walk this way...Riondino gives the part of Montalbano an entirely convincing and individual interpretation."
