It's been a while since the movies of this series were playing on SBS but I can still see the actor that plays Inspector Montalbano - he did such a tremendous job of bringing the grumpy, food loving, complicated character to life. Another series that I'm very behind with but I do love the chance to dip into the books when I can.

From the Blurb:

Inspector Montalbano, praised as 'a delightful creation' (USA Today), has been compared to the legendary detectives of Georges Simenon, Dashiell Hammett, and Raymond Chandler. As the fourth mystery in the internationally bestselling series opens, Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim’s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.
