TV News: Inspector Montalbano & the Hall of Mirrors

The second episode of the latest series of Inspector Montalbano (with Luca Zingaretti) is Hall of Mirrors on Saturday 26th October at 9pm on BBC Four:
A bomb goes off outside an empty store-room in a quiet Vigata street. Montalbano commences his investigation, but is soon disorientated by a series of disparate events, including the acquaintance of an attractive and mysterious woman
Hall of Mirrors is based on Andrea Camilleri's eighteenth Montalbano novel, Il gioco degli specchi, which has not yet been translated into English. The title comes from the film Lady from Shanghai.

I was so disappointed in the first episode of this new series, which I found shockingly bad - wooden acting, no plot and no tension. I love Montalbano, both the books and the tv series, but don't know if i can bring myself to watch the second episode :(

I also find the first programme suddenly corroborate more with the Young Montalbano than with the original series... a disappointment. Also the new Livia looks like Ingrid's sister... very disorientating.
