Salvo Montalbano declines any New Near('s Eve) invitation and distributes his father's gift, wine from the family vineyard, among his officers. In a room in the hotel where he sleeps, hotel manager Rosina Liotta Locastro's co-owning husband is found fatally shot. Neighbours are questioned in view of arrest for deadly carelessness at festive salvos, a national epidemic. Salvo however isn't convinced and digs in the Locastros business and romantic past. A priest also begs him to hear the deathbed confession of a woman who expires before she can elaborate on a story about poison not provided to a deceased husband's wife. Salvo's old schoolteacher's equally ancient buddy provides inspiration for the last case, but also convinces his fiancée that a cop's wife isn't for her.- Written by KGF Vissers
