Inspector Montalbano Complete Collection 1-10 (DVD)
If you’re a fan of Murder, She Wrote or Columbo, you’ll love the old-school Montalbano. Based on the Italian detective novels by Andrea Camilleri, starring Luca Zingaretti.
Filmed on location in Sicily, the breezy show follows an affable, hard-working cop trying to keep the peace in a small town where everybody knows each others’ secrets.
Even though it’s been in production since 1999, the early episodes still hold up. Things move slowly in the fictional town of Vigata, so you won’t notice the lack of computers or smartphones. Detective Salvo Montalbano even drives the same banged-up Fiat throughout the series.
