Looking for the man who conned the town
8 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode opens with a woman being held hostage by an old aged pensioner; it turns out that she is a secretary and her boss had disappeared with the old man's money… he had been running a fraudulent investment scheme at it appears that he owes money to half the town; it is just a pity that he seems to have vanished. He isn't the only person to have gone missing; another man who worked for him is missing too. In the course of his investigation Montalbano will have to deal with amorous women, a communist who's parrot sings 'The Internationale' and Mimi who is getting cold feet about his upcoming marriage to Beba. For most or the episode it is assumed that the men and the money are long gone; that is until Montalbano listens to a report about a sighting of the man's car from a source that had previously been considered highly unreliable to say the least.

Once again this series provides both a fascinating mystery and several genuine laughs; Montalbano's reaction to discovering that his favourite olive tree had been cut down was priceless and the communist parrot was one of the funniest things I have seen for some time! As always Cesare Bocci does a great job in the title role; he is fast becoming one of my favourite TV cops due to the way he manages to be hilarious while playing it straight. When the mystery is resolved the conclusion is satisfactory if not entirely unpredictable. I'm sure fans of the series will enjoy this episode as much as the ones leading up to it; so far the series has been of a consistently high quality.
