Satisfying Episode That Includes a Considerable Degree of Social Criticism
11 August 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This episode opens with the death of a blind man, Piccolomini, which is treated as routine at first but later discovered to be murderous. Montalbano embarks on a complicated quest involving bribery, charities, more blind people and a large dog called Orlando. As he puts together the pieces of the complicated jigsaw, he discovers just how callous people can be, especially when there is money involved. Blind people are treated like commodities, to be picked up and dispensed with at will; a reformed criminal is perceived as irredeemable; while dogs like Orlando are treated with the utmost contempt, especially when they are perceived to have outlived their usefulness. Despite being good with people, well-trained and generally good-natured, Orlando is left for dead in an illegal dog-fighting ring. Needless to say everything ends happily, but not without a struggle: Montalbano (Lucia Zingaretti) is forced to use his shotgun, a practice he normally abhors, while the stress of the case provokes him to such an extent that he treats his fellow-investigators Mimi (Cesare Bocci) and Galluzzo (Davido Lo Verde) with the utmost contempt. Alberto Sironi's production contains its fair share of humor from the incompetent cop Catarella (Angelo Russo), the master of the malapropism; but in general this is a darker episode than most in the series.
