I wish I had known that by these episodes Camillerie had forgotten the two qualities that made his hero so appealing, his sharp intelligence and his morality. If you take these away, Montalbano is just an average cop, too dumb to see what the audience can see and jumping like a circus poodle through hoops held up by all too obviously scheming women. This is what he used to save Augello from. It is odd to see his junior officer, Fazio, giving him common sense advice that he doesn't even take. Fazio is now what Montalbano used to be and Montalbano is now proving the adage, "there's no fool like an old fool". Does Camillerie not realise that Fazio is the new Montalbano with all the qualities that made Montalbano special? I find it odd that the author has sabotaged his main character. It isn't as if it has somehow made Montalbano more interesting as a man, he just seems tired. Is Montalbano suffering from short-term memory loss? He doesn't seem to remember that when a beautiful women insists that his body is hers and he has no say in the matter, they are using him as a tool. The plots are becoming repetitive. I would stop at eps. 19 and 20.

DVD's arrived on time and brought a smile to my face. Montalbano is my kind of guy. Just love him and it is set in gorgeous Sicily.

Can't wait to receive these 4 episodes Sept. 14 2013

I haven't received these subtitled episodes yet, but expect them by the end of September. But, I have watched the unsubtitled episodes on YouTube, and own all of the previously released episodes. This is the best detective series bar none, even those from Masterpiece Theatre and it is hard to top those. Luca Zingaretti has captured all of the quirky features of Montalbano (from the Andrea Camilleri novels), and his cohorts against crime are perfectly cast. The Italian/Sicilian is "rapido" so I like to check my understanding with the "sottotitoli" which are very well done and are translated beautifully.

I hope this is not the last of the Italian produced series, as Camilleri is still writing at 86 or so years!!!

Encore plus du Montalbano Sept. 15 2013
By Jane Stivarius - Published on

Episodes 23-25 have just run on French TV dubbed in French. Sicily is still gorgeous, Mimi has a silly mustache, A different but tall, thin and blonde lady plays Livia, the interchanges with Catarello border on slapstick but the series remains completely delightful, although, to me, it doesn't work in French. I've bought all the episodes so far and certainly will purchase these . . . .and be glad for the Italian with English subtitles.

Simply excellent Dec 13 2013

Really different. I don;t like detective stories but these are fun. I think we Americans don't pay attention to the rest of the world much. Watching Montalbano and his crew find the bad guy gives you insight into the European mind.

We love this series of Sicilian murder mysteries! The plots are excellent. There is intrigue, humor, culture, and insight into the daily lives of a very interesting people. We can't wait for the next release!

Gone down hill... Oct. 4 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on

I have watched all of this series. These last two episodes are nearly the same story in both 23 and 24. Both revolve around women seducing Montalbano. It seems the author has given up producing a real story that intrigues and holds interest and is playing around with the attraction of the main Character. Livia is no where to be seen. The other characters are tiny parts. Both these episodes are very disappointing. Not worth buying frankly. No where near the level of the other stories.
