Now it seems we are heading towards the official: the last two unpublished episodes of Inspector Montalbano will be made, and Luca Zingaretti, who has been playing him since 1999, will be there too. Despite the actor’s initial perplexities about the deaths that have affected the cast of the beloved and popular Rai fiction, which has registered audience records for over twenty years, gluing tens of millions of viewers to the screen, even with reruns, it seems there is an agreement. After all, without Zingaretti, who has always played for television the character born from the pen of the late Andrea Camilleri, it would not have been the same, on the contrary. You’re making me write a shitty novel about the story of Riccardino. It’s a pile of horseshit that doesn’t hold together,” the Author tells Montalbano. “‘Do you really mean that?’ ‘I really mean it. You are putting far too many contradictory elements into play and keeping them all on the same level, so that the reader gets lost in the confusion. This mystery is a big hodgepodge that reads like it was written by a beginner.’” Inspector Montalbano was produced and broadcast by RAI to critical acclaim. [1] It premiered on Rai 2, and then, since the fourth season, on Rai 1. Over 65 countries have broadcast the series, including on BBC Four in the United Kingdom, MHz WorldView in the United States and SBS in Australia. [2] In 2012, the series generated a spin-off, The Young Montalbano.

The final episode of the police television series Il Commissario Montalbano was aired last night on Italy's national broadcaster RAI, attracting an audience of more than nine million viewers. In the UK, the earlier episodes are currently available in both a collection and series format, with the series numbering following BBC Four's. These titles are distributed by Acorn Media UK.

Some of the questions frequently asked by our readers and fans of Montalbano who visit Ragusa are whether the two Inspector Montalbano new episodes will take place and when they will be broadcast. Will There Be Any New Montalbano Episodes? When? Carmelinda Gentile as Beatrice "Beba" Di Leo, becomes Mimì's wife (main: season 5; guest: seasons 3–4, 6–8, 12) The accountant Gargano has disappeared and with him all the money that many citizens of Vigata had given him in the hope that he would invest it productively. Together with a young man, Giacomo Pellegrino, who helped him in the business, he has left no trace. The Commissioner can count on two women who worked with the accountant Gargano; the first is a student who had sensed that something was not right, the other is the secretary of the accountant and is convinced of the innocence of the accountant. Montalbano, after numerous clues, find that the accountant Gargano after stealing money and killing his partner went to the house of his secretary, who, feeling sorry for him because he was having a severe mental breakdown after doing what he did, and to spare him suffering, killed him. Montalbano finds his decaying body in a bedroom where his lover put him after shooting him while he slept. a b c d e f g h i j k l BBC Four: "Inspector Montalbano, Episode guide: Series 2". Accessed 30 November 2014Cesare Bocci as Inspector Domenico "Mimì" Augello, Montalbano's deputy and close friend (season 1−15) Camilleri’s British editor Maria Rejt, at Mantle, said: “It’s typical Andrea – he decided he had an idea of how to end the series and how to write Montalbano out of fiction. It’s meta but it works. When he wrote the first one, he didn’t see it as a series, but then, because he got such warmth from readers, he thought ‘maybe I can use Montalbano as a vehicle’. He had total rage against the corruption in Sicilian and Italian society, and he channelled that into the great warmth of Montalbano. But he doesn’t preach at you, he doesn’t stand on his soapbox. I think he just thought, ‘Montalbano is me, and I too am going to dissolve out of life’, so I think the ending is just pitch perfect. Like all authors he wanted to remain in charge.” Take a look at Montalbano Police Station in the second episode of Inspector Montalbano, The Voice of the Violin.

In this episode, the idiosyncrasies of the main characters are further explored, offering glimpses into their personal lives and revealing the depths of their individual struggles. Montalbano's penchant for solitude and philosophical musings is juxtaposed with his unwavering dedication to bringing criminals to justice. Likewise, the lovable Officer Catarella's endearing bumbling nature masks a genuine desire to assist Montalbano at any cost.Throughout this article, you may notice that this post is not only to talk about where Montalbano was filmed but also to mention where Montalbano is filmed nowadays. It’s important to say this because two new Montalbano episodes are still left to finish filming and release. After the blow that the Covid-19 pandemic has given to the cast of Inspector Montalbano, with a change of director and part of the cast, after the mentor’s death, Camilleri, two last books deserve to be brought to the screen. And it is mainly the last book, revealed post-mortem, Riccardino, which brings closure to the police stories of Salvo Montalbano. That is why it is so essential for all the fans around the world. Giacinto Ferro (1943–2016) as Police Chief Bonetti-Alderighi, Montalbano's superior based in the provincial capital, Montelusa (seasons 1, 4–5, 7–9, 11) At the time of the release of episode 37, The Catalanotti Method, Carlo Degli Esposti, founder of Palomar and producer of fiction, took time to discuss the future of Montalbano, who confirmed the decision is made and Inspector Montalbano continues with two more episodes and will conclude with them. Will there be any new Montalbano episodes? Yes! Soon, new episodes of Inspector Montalbano will feature on Rai (an Italian state TV provider). As mentioned in other posts, in 2022, Montalbano’s beach house was used as a filming location for one of the new episodes. Luca Zingaretti was seen many times recently in Ragusa and Punta Secca. There was the usual opera buffa cameo from uniformed officer Catarella and his moustached serial philanderer colleague Mimi but truthfully this leave taking was a knowing celebration of everything the inspector stands for; wry humour, eye-rolling irritation, extravagant passion and of course, a good lunch. It ended with justice served alongside the linguine alle vongole. Body and soul sated.

Despite the recurring reruns of Detective Montalbano in 4K that the Italian TV channel Rai has become accustomed to lately, the appearance of Salvo is always guaranteed success. That’s why everyone is wondering if we’ll ever see the two new episodes that have been talked about for some time now. One episode is taken from Andrea Camilleri’s latest novel, ‘ Riccardino‘, and the other is from the book ‘Il cuoco dell’Alcyon‘, published in 2019. In this two-hour episode of the detective series, the main character, Salvo Montalbano, played by Luca Zingaretti, is woken up by a phone call from his deputy, Domenico ‘Mimi’ Augello, played by Cesare Adolfo Bocci. Mimi tells Montalbano that he found a dead body while engaging in a sexual encounter and is concerned that he may be wrongly accused of the crime. The episode opens with Montalbano's discovery, in an abandoned villa, of the naked body of Michela Licalzi, a young woman who was married to a wealthy and complaisant older man. Michela has been strangled during sex; near her body is a violin case. It turns out that she had owned a priceless Guarnieri del Gesù violin. Montalbano questions Michela's husband and her closest friend, Anna, a local school teacher, who takes a fancy to Montalbano. He discovers that Michela's lover was an antiques dealer from Bologna who is in financial difficulties because of his gambling problem. Montalbano and Livia go to the home Francois (their potential adoptee) has been living, to be safe, and learn that Francois does not want to leave with them and be adopted by them because he has become so attached to the temporary family and their children. This ends the planned marriage of Montalbano/Livia.

Through the words of the director of Rai Fiction, Rai would like to re-propose new episodes of the Salvo Montalbano saga. Maria Pia Ammirati declared: “I sincerely hope this year we will succeed. And we all trust in the desire to return to Luca Zingaretti’s set”.
