Trivia

Although he is a fan of the show, Montalbano creator Andrea Camilleri has openly stated that Luca Zingaretti's characterization differs somewhat from how he had originally envisioned the character. Camilleri poked fun at this in one of the books, where it's acknowledged that the TV series exists in the Montalbano universe. Specifically, Montalbano himself states that, unlike Zingaretti (who's also 11 years younger), he has a full head of hair. See more »

My favorite non English speaking series.
11 October 2019 | by phlbrq58See all my reviews

Every episode is a feature film. Visually beautiful, great casting, musical language, solid mystery construction, expressive of human frailties. A little creepy with lots of older men with beautiful young women. Sure the formula shows thru after a few eps but I never tire of the country and expressive characters.
