Detective Montalbano

The Snack Thief

An elderly import-export merchant is found dead; a young Tunisian woman who may have been mixed up with him disappears the same day— and who's been stealing those schoolkids' lunches? Maybe Luca Zingaretti's Montalbano can link all three together. All amid the dazzling locations of Sicily's southern coast; from the novel by Andrea Camilleri. Directed by Alberto Sironi, 1999, color. 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.
