Storyline

La stessa notte due persone muoiono: Ignazio Cucchiara di professione elettricista viene ucciso con sei colpi di pistola e Antonio Larussa, orafo per hobby, viene trovato fulminato sulla sua sedia a rotelle trasformata in sedia elettrica. Montalbano viene incaricato di quest'ultima indagine; la prima è di competenza di Augello. Larussa era disabile da circa trent'anni per una caduta da cavallo, era molto ricco e aveva molti interessi. Tutto sembra indicare un suicidio, ma quando viene trovato un testamento olografo che lascia tutto al fratello Giacomo con cui Antonio aveva riallacciato da poco i rapporti, Montalbano inizia a pensare e ad indagare. La verità sarà molto più complessa di quello che appare all'inizio. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Complicated Fraternal Murder Mystery That Leaves One or Two Loose Ends
6 August 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Antonio Larussa has apparently committed suicide in his own house with a complicated system of wires that transform his wheelchair into an electric chair. Everyone is certain that this is an open-and-shut case except for Montalbano (Luca Zingaretti). As he conducts his investigations, he uncovers a complicated plot involving Antonio's brother Giacomo (Luigi Maria Burruano), a high school physics teacher subsequently accused of murdering Antonio; and a childhood sweetheart of both brothers (Ileana Rigano) who has returned to the local area after the death of her husband. Meanwhile Mimi Augello (Cesare Bocci) investigates a separate murder of a loan-shark, which turns out to have a vital bearing on the Larussa case. Alberto Sironi's production goes through various twists and turns with a surprise ending that takes viewers by surprise. The only snag with this particular mystery is that it leaves certain loose ends of plot: Antonio has quite literally fried to death in his wheelchair, yet it seems that Giacomo did not notice anything amiss when he came back to Antonio's house. Surely the stench of burning flesh would have disturbed anyone? Nonetheless this story shows the human side of Montalbano, especially at the end when he allows the chief suspect a few moments of freedom on his own before taking him into custody.
