Is a recent murder linked to a twenty year old case?, 16 September 2012
Author: Tweekums from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When elderly construction magnate Girolamo Cascio is killed it is initially written off as an accident; he was drunk and walked in front of a speeding car; his accountant and only friend raises a question though; if it was an accident why are there no skid marks? Montalbano takes the case from Mimi who had his mind on the case of a fugitive conman anyway. A suspect arises quite quickly; Rocco Pennisi, the man who was convicted of killing Cascio's main rival twenty years before and had just been released from prison. As the case progresses whether Pennisi isn't just innocent in this case but was also innocent twenty years before. Later there is a second killing; this time a man with an Argentinian passport is found shot in the mountains… could the cases be related somehow?

Once again this episode mixes humour with a decent mystery; unusually though it isn't Catarella who provides most of the laughs; it is Mimi. His investigation into the conman is centred on observing his beautiful wife; giving Montalbano plenty of opportunities to tease him about his reputation with the ladies! Cesare Bocci does a good job in the role of Mimi. The mystery is good with a variety of suspects to choose from… and unusually the two recent murders weren't committed by the same person.
