Montalbano goes to The Potter's Field

The penultimate episode in this second run of Inspector Montalbano, at 9pm on 3 November, is The Potter's Field, based on The Potter's Field book, the thirteenth in Camilleri's series. The Potter's Field (which I loved) is arguably a perfect crime novel and won the 2012 CWA International Dagger.

As torrential rain pours down on Vigata, a plastic bag containing a body cut into pieces is found in a clay field. All the signs point to an old-fashioned Mafia killing. But why is Montalbano's trusted colleague and friend Mimi Augello suddenly irritable and short-tempered, and why is he insisting that the investigation be assigned to him? Could Mimi somehow be involved in the case?

It is amazing how old the actor playing Montalbano looks now - saw wings of the Sphynx last night & he's positively ancient.
