If you're at a loose end TV-wise this evening, BBC4 is starting a ten week broadcast of the Inspector Montalbano series :cool: This is the detective series set in Sicily.

One episode was shown about two years ago, in advance of the BBC's shonky Zen/Zed (I don't recall the name of it now). Let's just say...it's much better than that :thumbs:

I've read four of the books, and they're charming enough.

Here you can go for more information:

BBC - BBC Four Programmes - Inspector Montalbano, Series 1, The Snack Thief

Have set up the Sky Plus to tape all 10 shows.
Looking forward to watching the programme.

I thought Zen was OK.
Yes they did not speak italian or even English with an Italian accent but the stories were good.

Yes, I'll be watching too:)

Saw the previously televised episode(s) and have read a couple of the books too.

Good, fairly light-hearted entertainment with beautiful scenery:thumbs:

Heads up :D

Just watching a bit of Sinatra before Montalbano :thumbs:
:)

in one of the books - but not tonight's episode, though - an Alfa 166 is a key part of the investigation (let's just say...it takes a swim in the sea...)

This book/episode is called The Scent of The Night.
