Inspector Montalbano: The Paper Moon

The next and eighth episode in this second run of Inspector Montalbano, at 9pm on 13 October, is Paper Moon, based on The Paper Moon book, the ninth in Camilleri's series.

(Whereas the episodes have been shown in two series in the UK, in Italy they were shown in eight series over twelve years. The Paper Moon is the the last episode in the seventh series, shown in Italy in 2008. The  final set of four episodes were shown in 2011.)

A distressed woman arrives at Vigata police station to report the disappearance of her brother. Soon enough, the man is found murdered in what appears to have been a crime of passion. But Montalbano is reluctant to give too much credit to appearances and digs into the victim's past, talking to anyone who might have had an involvement in the case. Meanwhile, a number of high-profile businessmen and politicians die as a result of cocaine overdoses.
