The Return of Inspector Montalbano

Yes, next Saturday (25th) sees the return of Inspector Montalbano to BBC4 (at 9pm) with the remaining 12 episodes. I have so far watched eight of the first ten and have saved the last two until more news about the "second series" (I do this with books too) and have loved them.

The first episode of the second batch is Turning Point based on the novel Rounding the Mark the seventh in Andrea Camilleri's series.

One of Montalbano's most difficult cases begins during one of his habitual morning swims, when he finds a decomposed body floating in the water. The investigation leads him to uncover the unsavoury realities of international child trafficking.

Montalbano's TV adventures are available in the U.S., but only by purchase from MHZ Networks.

I am moving beyond temptation to a decision to actually purchase the first batch of episodes.
