A Voice in the Night
When a theft occurs at a supermarket controlled by a powerful Mafia family, Detective Montalbano finds himself having to trap the guilty using unconventional methods. He knows the Mafia inspires fear, especially when it's allied with politics. So to catch the perpetrator he does something he's never done before. His rationale - when one's adversaries aren't following the rules, you're authorized to break them yourself. In the end what counts is just solving the case, which works - at least until the next homicide... Directed by Alberto Sironi, 2013.
