If Scandi-noir is all about bodies on the slab and troubled cops, Inspector Montalbano is its very welcome antidote, a show full of sunshine and lives lived well.

This short, two-episode series kicks off with Luca Zingaretti’s sturdy cop swimming in the bay by his Sicilian home before he gets stuck into a case of arson and multiple kidnappings – with many a break for coffee, lunch or a glass of wine.

Perfetto!
