College-graduate Salvo Montalbano is a rising star in the Sicilian police, the youngest-ever appointed deputy commissioner. He's determined to solve his last case in his mountain town precinct, presumed gang murder where World War II-period mountaineering boots provide a crucial clue, while already promoted back to his native coastal village, to his fiancée's delight. Taking her there for a visit, he already walks into a web of dirty business involving the mob family's shamelessly 'mischievous' prince and a lawyer-fixer. Written by KGF Vissers

Everything I expected and more
7 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching the first episode of Season 1 and I'm delighted to say that it exceeded my expectations.

I've read all the books by Andrea Camilleri and have watched and thoroughly enjoyed all of the Inspector Montabano series with Luca Zingaretti. Thus, I had hoped not to be disappointed by this "prequel" series. On the strength of just the first story, I certainly have not been! Michele Riondino provides an excellent and very credible characterisation as he inhabits the younger Montalbano. A few of the traits of his "older self", now so familiar to me, are already showing up. I also find myself greatly looking forward to the further development of other familiar characters.

The locations are, of course, the same and, given that Sicilian towns don't change much over the years, they are so very familiar. I can only conclude that I must have been Sicilian in a former life as I continue to feel a nostalgia for a country I have only briefly visited once and many towns and places I never even got to visit when I was there.

I may be getting a bit mushy as I get older, but these stories always leave me with a warm and slightly smug feeling when I've finished watching. Go figure!
