Storyline

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! Episode 1 - RETURN TO SICILY - is the coming back of several characters to the little town where, years ago, the police commissary Cattani was set up and murdered by the Mafia. Rosario Granchio is transferred to the local prison against his will, tries to reach the prosecutor magistrate Silvia Conti but is killed due to the poor protection offered by an inexperienced deputy commissary Breda and an inept inspector Livotti. Silvia fails to get information from Rosario's daughter, Sara, who prefers to confide what she knows about his father's dangerous liaisons to Antonio Ragusa, a young thug. He aims at destroying the ascending Mafioso, Nuzzio, but is soon disposed of by the ruthless Nuzzio. Sara decides to punish the lecherous boss by killing his lover, but in the doing, she accidentally kills Nuzzio's natural son. Meanwhile, in St. Petersburg, Russia, Saverio is working underground in cahoots with Marcella, a banker's assistant, to discover a strange Mafia money ... Written by Artemis-9

Trivia

The Thule Academy is mentioned in the plot as being the center of the new crime ring. Though no direct reference is made to the Thule Society, formed in Munich in 1918 as a Middle East religious cult, and transformed into a Nazi activist group dedicated to destabilizing the Weimar Republic, the plot hints at a revival of that Nazi secret society behind the sophisticated computer-crimes and money-laundering of the present time.

One of the best TV series I've ever seen
29 August 2005 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this one in a while, but I do remember how this Italian show mesmerized an entire foreign country, and a huge one, too! Literally everyone who had a TV watched it, and those who didn't came over to their friends who did! One of the best TV series I've ever seen. The actors are good (Michele Placido is the lead actor for the first few seasons, I believe), the stories are incredible, very personal yet universal, there is so much real raw drama that you definitely need a box of tissues nearby! There is quite a bit of violence, not graphic, but it's a mafia series, so naturally, there are victims. Music is perhaps one of the best things about this series (I believe it's by Ennio Morricone)! I've been searching for its soundtrack desperately ever since I got Internet, so far without much success.
