The main thing I liked very much about this new series,-and I hope it is continued because it really is very well imagined-.is that Montalbano's character development is very subtly installed into the Montelbano palette. These nuances and shading, whether it be his egocentricity, his considered insights and his ability to gain respect, are there to be shared without shouting the fact. The development of his relationship with his father ,for example,is particularly touching. The other characterizations,do leave one wondering about changes in physical attributes to come in the M. senior series, but on the whole ,it's extremely well done. Cannot wait for more! let's say another five series would be fine
