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 »

very good series - Montalbano
13 September 2017 | by kuzerhdefSee all my reviews

Yes, Salvo is the right toyboy for the ladies and an impatient chief for the police station. I like him and his logic even there is Catarella, the nuisance got a name, and Mimi being the limited officer by his side. Fazio is the bright officer who can follow Salvo's mind. After all this is a film reflecting Sicilian attitude at its best. This is one of the best police drama's I have seen even it can be comical at times.
