Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Prepare to be seduced by glorious Sicilian scenery, intriguing cases and a charismatic central performance. Luca Zingaretti IS Montalbano, humanity and warmth shining through in every episode. In six feature length investigations he checks out - amongst others - a goldsmith electrocuted, a blind man poisoned, an embezzler missing, old women mugged by a motorcyclist. Often there are surprises, little as it seems.

An early morning swim sets him up for each new day's challenges - he to be unfazed by bosses who try to pull rank, loyal to colleagues, leading from the front whenever there are risks. He genuinely cares for those who have suffered, if necessary bending the rules to give them a break. (Note that moving airport scene in the final episode - not a word spoken, but so much conveyed.)

Admittedly some episodes could do with a trim. (Officer Mimi's prolonged amorous yearnings seem rather obvious space filling and prove extremely tiresome.) Otherwise everything works a treat - many no doubt delighted how easily they cope with subtitles.

In short, a welcome wallow for all who appreciate a slower pace - a leisurely solving of crimes in travel brochure settings.

Addictive.

Saw the series on TV and later bought all of the series, about 19 dvds, dating back from 1999 to 2011. I looked for these in Italy and they didn't have English subtities. But luckily these have. Good, your're in luck! My Italian isn't too perfect but I love Montalbano to bits as you Britishers say, and every so often I take them out and watch them marathon style and refresh my Italian. Camilleri's books are laugh outloud funny in places and are little jewels, but the series brings everything to life. You get, as Donna Leon commented, the magic, the mystery that is Sicily. Enjoy and be enchanted with Italy and Luca Zingaretti (Montalbano).

Great! More Montalbano episodes with English subtitles. When I discovered Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano novels, I felt as though I'd stumbled across a gold mine. I'm hard to please when it comes to fictional detectives, but for me these books are up there alongside such greats as Raymond Chandler's first four novels or Dashiel Hammett's "The Dain Curse". And now we have the TV version, which I rate as highly as John Thaw's Inspector Morse or Jeremy Brett's first few TV series as Sherlock Holmes.

You can't help but compare Montalbano and Morse. Both have the quirkiness of the hero; both have humour; and both have beautiful backdrops, in the shape of Sicily and Oxford. The difference for me is that with Montalbano I love the books AND the TV version, whereas with Morse I love the TV version but I'm not keen on the books.

The character of our flawed hero Montalbano has been adapted well for the screen, although we obviously don't get inside his head as much as we can in the books, and the TV version portrays him as a younger man. Montalbano is selfish and odd, but endearing and amusing - even more so in the books than on the screen. Here is a man who will avoid meeting his girlfriend so that he can savour a good meal in his favourite restaurant without having to talk to anyone. Of course every writer tries to create a detective who is in some way "different" or quirky, or has an interesting relationship with his sidekick, but the Montalbano creation really works and is very refreshing.

The humour, too, is an important element in both the TV version and the books. Camilleri thankfully does not rely on the currently predominant crime story formula of shock, gore and serial killers.

While collection two is yet to be released, please forgive my presumption of creating a review for a product yet to be released! That said I have, like those us who watch BBC 4, and seen some of the episodes to be included in collection two I felt it was time for a review.

Our Inspector Salvo Montalbano, who works in the fictional town of "Vigàta", in the equally fictional district of "Montelusa" in Sicily. Where the Sun is bright and life treads at a different pace, amongst classic bleached white villages and towns that would look out of place in a tourist guide book. In this almost Mediterranean idle there is darkness, decay and at times murder.

He and the members of Vigata's small police force, namely Mimì Augello, Montalbano's second-in-charge, Fazio, Gallo, Galluzzo and the incredibly stupid yet very likeable Catarella, who mans the station's phones, among other minor tasks. While his whole team have suffered from his out bursts, and sometime strange management style he cares for them and in turn they are all very loyal to him, none more so than his girlfriend of 8 plus years. Salvo is a foodie, with a passion, and he rarely permits anything to get between him and good meal, including other social commitments. He is also an avid swimmer; so much so, his apartment is set on the beach front. While his girlfriend, Livia, has to compete with his detective work, we find in the latter series that he will take Livia on a short romantic holiday, although he is using this pretext to further his investigations. He also brings the new love of his life, in the form of a big black shaggy dog. As it turns out, this dog is the key to his latest case.
Luca Zingaretti who plays the major role really brings the detective to life; his characterisation for me is spot on.
