The Third Secret
5 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode opens rather strangely; Montalbano and Catarella are making their way through a town; then Catarella is shot and starts to sing operatic music as he dies… Montalbano is having a very strange dream! In the morning he gets a call from Catarella; somebody has stolen the notice board containing all the wedding notices in what appears to be an attempt to prevent one of the marriages taking place; the question is which one and why. A second more pressing case begins when Montalbano receives a letter warning him that an Albanian construction worker is about to have a fatal accident; unfortunately due to a postal strike the letter arrived late and the man is dead. Officially it is the Carabinieri's case but he decides they will investigate anyway.

Normally I'm not a fan of dream sequences but this episode's opening was so surreal I enjoyed it; anything involving Catarella is funny and this episode featured more 'Catarella moments' than most; Fabrizio Pizzuto is great in the role. The two mysteries were interesting and it was a pleasant surprise when the standard TV detective cliché of having two separate cases turning out to be linked was avoided. It was also nice to see the cliché of having rival law enforcement agencies arguing over jurisdiction being avoided after Montalbano learns that the head of the local Carabinieri is aware of his investigation… this also leads to a rather touching ending to the one case. Overall this was another fun episode; it is just a shame there is only one more to go in the series… I can just hope that more are made.
