Mondays, on BBC Four
Prequel series set in the early 1990s giving an insight into the private life and early crime-fighting career of the idiosyncratic Sicilian detective Inspector Montalbano.
The year is 1990, and Montalbano is deputy inspector in a remote village in the Sicilian mountains. A local thug with a history of theft is murdered and the evidence points to an elderly shepherd as the killer. In the meantime Montalbano is promoted to inspector and transferred to the seaside town of Vigàta, where he grew up. There he stumbles upon a piece of evidence that solves the case in the mountains, and also unravels the mystery of why a girl attempted to murder a judge.
One feels the urge to create 'atmospherically delightful' crime shows list ,to categorise this show, like perhaps i.e. Partners in Crime. The Young Montalbano bears all fine qualities of Italian values; wholesemeness,Mediterranean sentimentality, great food, pinch of Sicilian lifestyle and gorgeous scenary. Characters are heartwarming and at times show can be genuinely funny. For change of style and scenary, it is a delightful treat.
