As the series continues, sometimes the plots get convoluted and character development stalls. Mimi, for example, continues his wandering eye; good for cheap laughs but not much more. And apparently there's still no auto-arrest policy in Italy for domestic assault/battery. Still, these are generally well-plotted plots within the traditional Sicilian framework--a glimpse into another world where the Mafia is still very much a presence and emotions run high.

A clever and funny Italian detective television series! Very enjoyable and beautiful locations all around Italy. A hit with my family!

The detective breaks my heart (joking) as he finally betrays his girlfriend by cheating with another woman (Angelica). Who, naturally, as the evil temptress, winds up in the hospital. I'll probably continue to watch this series, keeping in mind it depicts another culture--the constant bevy of beautiful women who throw themselves at Salvo is a very male Italian fantasy (no one seems to care about morals or AIDS, etc.)

Detective Montalbano solves his crimes in the town of Vigata. The scenery of the Sicilian city of Ragusa is beautiful and peaceful. I like all of his detective series.

One of my favorite detective stories. It has the Italian flavor, but it also has a real story in each one of the episodes, not the usual car chase criminal stories that are so prevalent now. Each episode is markedly different, and some of them tackle the Mafia, but the present problems that Italy is facing right now (the tremendous influx of people from North Africa by boat).

I like to watch all kinds of detective and mystery movies. Just by chance I found this DVD in the Millbrea Library . Commissario Montalbano had sense of humor and was clam in handling different cases, I begin to like this Italian detective series, also the film was taken in the peaceful and attractive Sicilian city of Ragusa.

If you don't mind reading subtitles, this series is great to watch. The details on the bib record give a good summary. I've always wanted to visit Sicily and now I have a yearning for those sun-kissed shores. The intro scenes are spectacular!
