This episode sees Montalbano and the team investigating two cases; one that is fairly routine, the other most definitely isn't. The routine case involves the murder of a rich, elderly man; initially it is assumed his drunken son killed him for the inheritance but it isn't long before it looks as if he couldn't have done it. The second case initially appears almost trivial; one Monday morning they receive a report concerning the shooting of a fish! They begin to wonder if it is a bit more serious when the next week a chicken is shot and the next week a dog. Somebody is shooting increasingly large animals and they have to figure out who it is before a person is targeted… it won't be easy though as there is no obvious connection between the animals or their owners.

It is a pity that this was the final episode of this all too short series; I can only hope more are made later. The two cases were interesting although the old man's murder was solved surprisingly quickly. That didn't matter though as the animal case was both interesting and bizarre. It may have got a bit silly towards the end but that didn't matter as the story was both entertaining and amusing. The fact that the stories are often amusing is what makes the series appeal to me. Inevitably many of the laughs come from the bumbling Catarella but they are also provided by the womanising Mimi and even Montalbano himself as he becomes jealous when girlfriend Livia goes on holiday without him. As always the acting is solid; the actors really bring the characters to life even though I rely on the subtitles to understand what they are saying.
