Was v worried that it just would not work, Luca is so perfectly into Camilleri's characterisation, did not see how the prequel could possibly pull it off.
Needn't have worried, it all works perfectly.
A good introduction to the Camilleri books, and could be watched either before or after the original series. It works either way.
Don't understand mouthbox moans, perhaps he just can't multitask. He hasn't seen previous series and presumably hasn't read the books which have wonderful footnotes of the food. Perfect makes you want to rush to the kitchen,I definitely agree with that part of the review.
So, read the books, watch all episodes, enjoy the food wine and scenery.
