Montalbano has to eliminate many possible suspects, and think outside the box to figure out how the murderer was able to get away undetected.

Although the authorities publicly pronounce Luparello's death to be from "natural causes", Montalbano questions the victim's widow and Rizzo; the latter implicates Ingrid Sjostrom, a Swedish former racing driver. As the case is sorted out, it becomes clear that the killer has carefully prepared a series of deceptions to trip up Montalbano, but in the end the commissioner gets at the truth. Inspector Montalbano's men stage the arrest of the elderly Mafia boss Tanu 'u Greco, who has confided to Montalbano that he wished to take refuge in prison because he was repelled by the violent ways of the new, international Mafia that no longer adheres to the older codes of "the honoured society". Combines three short stories: "Come voleva la prassi" appearing in Morte in mare aperto e altre indagini del giovane Montalbano and in English as "Usual Procedure" in Death at Sea by Andrea Camilleri, (S. Moreover, although Montalbano’s director also died recently, that didn’t stop “The Catalanotti Method” episode broadcasted in 2022 from being made, as Luca Zingaretti not only acted but also convinced Rai to direct the episode, and boy, did he know how to do it well!It also created a spike in tourism in Sicily, dubbed the “Montalbano Effect,” that locals worry may now be in jeopardy.

Montalbano, enraged by the interrupted sleep, cannot find his clothes and goes to open in his pajamas, finding himself in front of the commissioner Bonetti-Alderighi who, desperate and crying, asks to be hidden. It turns out that Angelica’s parents, who died several years earlier, were being blackmailed by Pierrera, and it is she and her cousin who have instigated the other thefts to cover up this last and most important one, which they hope will prove his criminal activities. Also familiar is the look in Mimi’s eyes upon the arrival at the crime scene of the new head of forensics, Antonia Nicoletti (Greta Scarano, The Vertical Line, Anti-Mafia Squad).

I never understood why they put such an unatractive actress to play the "third' Livia, who looks almost anorexic and is very nervous (it shows and it's not part of the acting), quite the opposite of the first Livia. When he investigates, Montalbano finds the new door missing, and he discovers remnants of explosives and various armaments in the immediate area.

He discovers that Di Carlo’s girlfriend Silvana has disappeared, which adds to the mystery, since it also turns out that she has also been the lover of Di Carlo’s best friend.Might the key to discovering the identity of the killer be bound up in Catalanotti's disturbing conception of the stage?
