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.

Episode 23: Angelica’s Smile - A series of robberies take place within the singular group of Vigata’s elite. One of the victims is Angelica, a young, magnetic bank manager. Montalbano is bowled over by her; she reminds him of the heroine of Aristo’s “Orlando Furioso” and not just because of her name. He falls to her feet like a schoolboy and tries his best in fighting a difficult battle to resist her. As the investigation continues he realizes that the robberies are only a cover for something completely different, much more serious and tragic at the same time.

Episode 24: Mirror Effect - Somebody’s trying to confuse Detective Montalbano: a strange villa, a love story right out of Shakespeare, some mysterious explosions and a couple of dead bodies complicate the question of what is real and what isn’t. It’s a tour de force and the game of mirrors culminates in a warning to Montalbano himself. One thing’s certain: behind this strange case lurks something much larger and the detective has to find out what it is. As the investigation gets increasingly difficult, things start to slip out of Montalbano’s control…

Episode 25: A Voice in the Night - When a theft occurs at a supermarket controlled by a powerful Mafia family, Detective Montalbano finds himself having to trap the guilty using unconventional methods. He knows the Mafia inspires fear, especially when it’s allied with politics. So to catch the perpetrator he does something he’s never done before. His rationale: when one’s adversaries aren’t following the rules, you’re authorized to break them yourself. In the end what counts is just solving the case. Which works, at least until the next homicide.

Episode 26: A Ray of Light - Mimi has no problem obliging when Montalbano asks him to be an undercover lothario in the investigation of a female assault victim's alibi. Montalbano's got bigger stuff going on: a farmer has reported trespassing in an abandoned shed and there's evidence to support the presence of an arms trafficking ring. And as if the week isn't busy enough, Livia asks to come visit when she gets hit with an unshakeable sense of depression. Not until the end of her stay do they figure out just what was giving her a heavy heart.
