For lovers of the books this is a worthwhile purchase, putting more flesh on the bones with this visual treat of murder & mayhem from the police department at Vigata. If you have read the books you will soon see the adaptions work very well for the screen. The actors are true to the book characters, Caterella, what a man, played to the book, slightly bonkers, at times idiotic then giving Montalbano the inspiration to move the case in hand forward, he is always respectful towards the Inspector, standing up & bowing when he addresses him, & he crashes that door open!
The DVD box states that it is region 4 but I tried it without changing the region on our region 2 player & it worked OK. As this volume came from USA it may have been produced for playing anywhere.
I have a volume 1 DVD set from Australia & that will only play in Region 4, so make sure you can change your player to suit.
