Detective Montalbano

The Potter's Field

When a body is found cut into pieces and wrapped in a plastic bag, all signs point to an old-fashioned Mafia-style execution. Why is Detective Montalbano's trusted colleague Mimi Augello suddenly behaving erratically, and insisting on handling the case alone? Could Mimi somehow be involved in the murder? An old friendship is tested as Montalbano tries to help Mimi out of a dangerous situation. Directed by Alberto Sironi, 2011. In Italian with English subtitles.

series description

A series of drive-by muggings by a helmet-clad motorcyclist are bad enough—but then the mysterious biker escalates to murder, even a pregnant girl's father goes nuts in a hospital ER, and a local gynecologist turns up missing. Can Montalbano tie everything together? Directed by Alberto Sironi. 2001, color. In Italian with English subtitles.
