The case of the horse on the beach
7 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Montalbano looks out over the beach one morning he is shocked to find a dead horse there; it had clearly been killed nearby and dumped there. After the scene has been inspected he contacts the relevant authority to have the carcass collected but when he gets back to the scene it has gone! Mimi speculates that it had probably been used in illegal races so they'd be unlikely to here from anybody… however later in the day a beautiful woman named Rachele Esterman come to the station to report its theft. It turns out two almost identical horses had been stolen from a nearby stable… this raises several questions; which was the dead horse? Why would somebody steal a horse only to kill it and if killing the horse was just a way of getting to somebody which owner was being targeted? While Montalbano is investigating the horse somebody appears to be taking an interest in him and his house; it looks as if it could be related to a case he is going to give evidence at… but could it really be because somebody is looking for a piece of evidence they think he has?

There may have been no murders in this story but it was still entertaining. The case was sufficiently interesting and there were plenty of motives and suspects to choose from as well as a good number of laughs; the way Catarella introduced Rachele as Miss Ester Man was hilarious as was Mimi's reaction when he saw her leaving… he can be forgiven though as she did look stunning in her orange dress! It was good to see Isabell Sollman return again as Salvo's friend Ingrid; watching her tease Salvo about Rachele was a delight! Guest star Mandala Tayde did a fine job as Rachele; it was no surprise that her attempts to seduce the Inspector were successful despite his attempts to avoid her! I look forward to finding out if his relationship with Livia will survive; we seem to be seeing less of her these days; this time she was just a voice on the phone.
