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.
