First Look: A Nest of Vipers

Episode 29
A man arrives at his father’s home to find him dead, murdered with a shotgun while drinking coffee in the kitchen. With no sign of forced entry, it’s clear the victim knew his murderer. Finding locals with possible motives is easy, because he spent a lifetime exploiting young women and making enemies of fellow townspeople. Montalbano also discovers that the victim wasn’t just shot, but had been poisoned hours earlier. It’s as if two murderers had decided that night, independently of one another, to kill him. Directed by Alberto Sironi, 2016.

A Delicate Matter

Cast & Crew

Salvo Montalbano
Nobody rocks the police chief gig like Salvo. He’s decent, honest and hates bureaucracy. He loves Sicily, justice and his girlfriend, Livia. Sicilian cooking leaves him weak in the knees.

Domenico “Mimì” Augello
Vigata’s Latin Lover, Mimì cannot resist women. He’s OK with being number two at the police station, as long as it means working next to his best friend, Salvo.

Giuseppe Fazio
A loyal assistant, Fazio serves tirelessly and anticipates what’s needed for investigations. His exhaustive information gathering can drive Montalbano a little crazy.

Agatino Catarella
If there’s a way to screw up a name or a phone message, Catarella will find it. No one cries more easily, loves more loyally or manages the computers as well as he.

Livia Burlando
An architect and Montalbano’s girlfriend, Livia prefers to live in Genoa. She and Salvo are star-crossed lovers, incapable of staying apart but not quite able to live together in Sicily.

Dr. Carmelo Pasquano
Too many grisly crime scenes have taken their toll on Vigata’s coroner. He lives for his nights out playing cards, which Montalbano invariably interrupts.

Alberto Sironi
The award-winning director of all 28 episodes of Detective Montalbano, Sironi’s superb casting of Sicilian actors for the supporting characters gives the series its authenticity.

Andrea Camilleri
As the author of the internationally popular crime novels featuring Detective Montalbano, Andrea Camilleri is considered a national treasure. At 91, he’s still writing.
