Storyline

Salvo doesn't see eye to eye with is very different new deputy commissioner Domenico 'Mimì' Augello, a slick, somewhat lazy womanizer, and keeps him cruelly short. Their first case is the kidnapping but quick unharmed return of a young girl during the local festival, so when the father denies filing a complaint, Salvo's focus is on the firm he runs with his brother, Mimi's on nurse Livia, but hers turns to Salvo. A crazy retired hoarder reports the theft of his years collection of beer bottle caps, which Salvo suspects to be about drugs. Finally there's a multiple twist in the local Mafia clan war.

This episode opens with a man sipping coffee as he eyes a variety of attractive women… he is of course Mimi; Montalbano's womanising deputy who will be familiar to fans of the original series but here it is his first day in Vageta and he is about to meet Montalbano for the first time. Montalbano's first impressions of Mimi are not good and he quickly gives him an apparently trivial case involving the theft of a box of beer caps belonging to a man who does not throw anything away… literally! Not long afterwards a second case emerges; this time involving the disappearance of a three year old girl. She is soon found several miles away and apparently unharmed. The family don't want the case to proceed but Montalbano is convinced that the girl couldn't have got that far on her own so starts looking for kidnappers. Away from the cases Mimi starts to take an interest in a potential witness but we know it is Salvo she will end up with… she is Livia.

This was another fun episode which introduced two important characters from the original series. Mimi's introduction was particularly fun... he was even more of a ladies' man than I remembered and the scenes between him and Salvo were entertaining too; Alessio Vassallo who plays him is a welcome addition to the cast. Sarah Felberbaum's portrayal of Livia was also good; I could see why both Mimi and Salvo liked her! While the introduction of these characters was the most important thing in the episode the cases were entertaining too… even if the collection of the man whose beer caps were stolen was rather disturbing. As always there was just the right mix of drama and humour; something that makes this series a delight to watch.
