Detective De Luca

Product Description

DETECTIVE DE LUCA
Against the backdrop of Italy's political upheaval, Fascism and chaos during the tumultuous post-war period between 1938 and 1948, Detective De Luca does the one thing he knows how to do: be a cop. He investigates and solves crimes in the war-torn city of Bologna and along the Adriatic coast with little or no regard for those in power, whoever they happen to be. His solitary and uncompromising character, his magnetic effect on women, and the fact that he's simply too skilled and too honest a policeman not to uncover the truth, all conspire to land him in trouble from time to time. Based on the best-selling crime novels by Carlo Lucarelli, Detective De Luca is a portrait of an iconoclastic detective who ultimately solves his cases, though what he uncovers is a reality that's often disturbing.

EPISODE 1 -  AN UNAUTHORIZED INVESTIGATION
A call girl lies dead on the beach, right in front of the house where Mussolini is vacationing. When the case gets solved too easily, DeLuca follows his own lead, which takes him to the highest levels of il Duce's Fascist society.

EPISODE 2 - CARTE BLANCH
When a wealthy Fascist bachelor is found stabbed in his home, De Luca questions everyone involved in his life including bored socialite wives, young single groupies, the victim's peasant maid and personal friends of Mussolini.

EPISODE 3 -  CLOUDY SUMMER
Posing as rural partisans, De Luca and his fellow policeman get caught in a checkpoint skirmish that ends in bloodshed.  The policemen scatter and escape, and De Luca stumbles into a small mountain village, posing as a government engineer. 

EPISODE 4 - VIA DELLA OCHE
Transferred to Bologna, De Luca finds the city and its people sadly changed by war.  He’s assigned the lowly task of policing the notorious red light district.  When his first murder case points to local politicians and members of the police hierarchy, he has no intention of looking the other direction.
