For nearly a decade, Luca Zingaretti has played the gruff, yet very stylish Police Inspector from Vigata on the Southern coast of Sicily. As always, the viewer can expect complex crime detection, some exotic locations, and some unbelieveably good dining. Montalbano has always believed that nothing needs to be rushed so much that a good lunch on a balcony should be missed. Buon appetito!

The tale begins with an imaginary wedding, but more on that later....the first hint of crime is a sad, blind man touring Vigata calling out plaintively for the return of his missing daughter Michela. Her life has been a harsh one, and she ends up working in prostitution. But it seems a relationship with Saverio Moscato will change all that. Meanwhile, Montalbano has become involved with a pair of elderly actors who are rehearsing for a performance of Romeo and Juliet. But are also clearly preparing for their final performance. So two mysteries need to be solved, and in a further complication, Livia's old boyfriend has re-appeared via social media. The madness of love, and the unpredictable behaviours of those in love, is a theme that threads all 3 plots in this excellent episode of Inspector Montalbano. Oh, the wedding? It seemed to be Salvo and Livia... The Merry-Go Round : In the normally quiet town of Vigata, first one, then two, and soon three completely inexplicable kidnappings targeting women who work in banks. They feature cars in common, and a man utilising pads with chloroform yet no-one is harmed. And then, a mysterious fire at an electronics shop owned by a playboy named Marcello di Carlo who has disappeared. Clues are being laid out, but how to put the pieces together? Slowly, the story unfolds, and serious violent crimes are exposed. Inspector Montalbano and his team are challenged at every step in this compelling mystery

Montalbano trova casualmente, in una villa fuori dal paese, il cadavere di una giovane e bellissima donna completamente nuda. Il commissario inizia le indagini e scopre che la morta, Michela Licalzi, aveva di recente acquistato la villa ed era giunta in Sicilia da Bologna per restaurarla. In seguito ad alcuni contrasti tra polizia scientifica e lo stesso Montalbano l'indagine viene affidata al commissario Panzacchi. Quest'ultimo giunge alla conclusione che l'assassino sia un giovane del paese, un ritardato mentale, perdutamente innamorato di Michela e scomparso la notte stessa dell'omicidio. I poliziotti si mettono sulle sue tracce e, per difendersi da un suo presunto lancio di bomba a mano, gli sparano e lo uccidono. Poche ore dopo Montalbano viene a sapere che lo sfortunato giovane non teneva in mano una bomba bensì una delle sue scarpe e che il puerile piano era stato architettato da Panzacchi per coprire la leggerezza dei suoi uomini. Il caso viene riaffidato a Montalbano, il quale proseguendo le indagin
