italian w/ english subtitles. set in sicily on the seashore this series has nothng to do w/ organized crime. on the contrary stories include: the snack theif -- elderly import-export merchant is murderd and a young tunisian woman disappears at the same time. is she a terrorist? why is her small son 'the snack theif'? what happens to him?

this first story reveals montalbano humanity w/ an odd sense of justice. the body is found in an elevator. the intrpid sicilian crime-fighter interviews two woman on the fourth floor who found the body, but didn;t report it because they declared they were 'respectable'. next, montalbano interviews an elderly man who had riden up to his apartment on the fifth floor w/ the body dropping a bottle of wine in the process. terrified his wife will find out he begs the cop to retrieve the bottle. montalbano tells his sargeant to pretend to arrest the two woman making a big display to horrify the neighbours and embarress the woman; then he asks him to by a bottle of wine and slip it to the elderly gentleman. he leaves humming to himsle pleased w/ his orders and having a murder to solve.

the first story also reveals montalbno's defiance of authority and his unusual relationship w/ his colleagues not as blatent as the theme in 'zen' series or prime suspect, but politics seem inevitable in the police structure. all this goes together to make a likeable cop and a great series of crime drama.

Story 2: the voice of the vilolin - i couldn't guess this one - montolbano's trusty sidekick speeds and ends the 'daring duo' in an accident next to an abandoned palace. in the palace m finds a body of a beautiful nude female. what does the corpse have to do w/ a rare violin found in the villa w/ the lid open?

I am Canadian, I married a Sicilian and love sicilian culture. I wanted to surprise my hubby with a story set in Sicily...he loves it especially some of the Sicilian dialect that is sometimes expressed! I love the main character...such a wonderful change from American crime drama's...Luca Zingaretti captures this lead character with such passion you feel like you are part of the story. I highly recommend this series...bought the whole set...couldn't resist!

the plots are so complex, they are sometimes difficult to follow, otherwise, reasonably entertaining.
