Sadly the current series of Montalbano came to an end last night; but it closed its curtains on a wonderful note with The Goldfinch and The Cat, lovingly sharing with us its humour. I struggled with the first episode as the subtitles moved so quickly when Montalbano was in ‘hissy fit’ mode. However, I stuck with it on the advice of tweeting companions and grew to love it. And the books? I have to admit that Andrea Camilleri is one of those authors I have not got around to yet. But as soon I have the time that will change. The TV productions for this run covered 1999 to 2002 and it was interesting to see how things have changed. Here, we have Montalbano in pictures.
