Montalbano - last ever book and film
Have we seen the last of Montalbano?
One episode has not been shown on British television. This episode is called Beloved Salvo, My Livia. It was shown on Italian television on 8th of March last year, 2020, and viewed by 9 million Italians. It has still to be shown in the UK, I believe.
I’ve got a trailer for this episode in Italian lower down this page.
Montalbano book still to be seen in UK
There may be yet another Montalbano film episode after this “final” episode because the author, Andrea Camilleri, wrote the book he wanted to be his last about Montalbano years before he died. He instructed that it was not to be published until after his death.
In fact Camilleri died in July 2019 and the final book, which was called Riccardino, was published in Italy in July 2020.
The English translation will appear on 14 of October 2021. I hope RAI TV in Sicily will make a film version of this final novel. More details about the book in translation from the Amazon link.
