Detective Montalbano: Episodes 19 & 20

Product Description
Murder, betrayal, office politics, temptation... it's all in a day's work for Detective Salvo Montalbano. With his always loyal and sometimes effective police squad he solves crimes in Vigata, crossing paths with housewives and priests, liars, saints and Mafia dons. He also wages a personal war with his own demons, which fight against his professional ideals and personal commitment to beautiful long-distance girlfriend, Livia. Yet there's always time to indulge a long-standing flirtation with his ultimate temptress, Italian cuisine. The series is filmed in the ancient, sun-washed Sicilian city of Ragusa, and is based on the international best-selling mystery novels by Andrea Camilleri.

When a body is found cut into pieces and wrapped in a plastic bag, all signs point to an old-fashioned Mafia-style execution. The case becomes especially complicated for Montalbano when his friend Mimi starts behaving erratically and insists on handling the investigation himself. His first reaction is irritation until he realizes that his colleague may be indirectly involved in the killing. An old friendship gets tested as Montalbano tries to help his friend get out of the most dangerous predicament of his life.

Montalbano's worst nightmare begins when the father of trusted deputy Fazio reports his son missing. Convinced that he's off on an investigation of his own, which may have gone bad, Montalbano comes across ominous signs of a shootout. A witness reports having seen him captured by two criminals who were talking about throwing him into a dried-up well and the search becomes frantic. Fazio remains missing in action but Montalbano is determined to find his old friend and colleague alive at all costs.
