9the Potter's Field0
When a body is found cut into pieces and wrapped in a plastic bag, all signs point to an old-fashioned Mafia-style execution. Why is Detective Montalbano's trusted colleague Mimi Augello suddenly behaving erratically, and insisting on handling the case alone? Could Mimi somehow be involved in the murder? An old friendship is tested as Montalbano tries to help Mimi out of a dangerous situation. Directed by Alberto Sironi, 2011. In Italian with English subtitles.

A series of robberies take place within a singular group of Vigata' s elite. One of the victims is Angelica, a young, magnetic bank manager. Montalbano is bowled over by her; she reminds him of the heroine of Aristo's "Orlando Furioso" - and not just because of her name. He falls to her feet like a schoolboy and tries his best in fighting a difficult battle to resist her. As the investigation continues, he realizes that the robberies are only a cover for something completely different; much more serious and tragic at the same time... Directed by Alberto Sironi, 2013.
