A passion for the job makes Franco Soneri Ferrara's best investigator but also its most difficult. He's brusque and inscrutable, but he and his team manage to discover what others would like to keep hidden: addictions, pedophilia, secret loves, and even injustices left over from World War II.
Cool male Italian detective, Soneri, with likable goofy sidekick and good looking girlfriends. Stories in the series are interesting and easy to follow. English subtitling is so good that this viewer and his spouse found the dialogue easier to follow than many stories in English, for example, in the Inspector Lewis series.
The hero's constant cigar smoking seemed phony when first encountered but we got used to it. The Russian girlfriend became tiresomely predictable after a while but the series editors found a way of sending her home and providing Soneri with a new love interest.
Good cinematography. Fun to experience Italy.
We like the series. Hope to eventually see all available episodes.
