Set on the coast of Sicily, The Safety Net is the twenty-fifth novel in the bestselling Inspector Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri.

***Adapted for BBC4's Inspector Montalbano series***

Vigata is bustling as the new filming location for a Swedish television series set in 1950. In the production frenzy, the director asks the locals to track down movies and vintage photos to faithfully recreate the air of Vigata at that time. Meanwhile, Montalbano is grappling with a double mystery, one that emerges from the past and another that leads him into the future . . .

Engineer Ernesto Sabatello, rummaging in the attic of his house, finds some films shot by his father between 1958 and 1963, always on the same day, 27th March, and always the same shot: the outside wall of a country house. Montalbano hears the story and, intrigued, begins to investigate its meaning.

Meanwhile, a middle school is threatened by a group of armed men, and a closer look at the case finds Montalbano looking into the students themselves and delving into the world of social media.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Camilleri's twenty-sixth Inspector Montalbano mystery novel proves to be every bit as droll, as delicious, and as darkly tough as the first twenty-five . . . The beauty of the Inspector Montalbano novels [is] In addition to the baffling crimes he solves, there's a sense of absurdity that has the reader chuckling by page one * Washington Post *
Among the most exquisitely crafted pieces of crime writing available today . . . Simply superb * Sunday Times *
One of fiction's greatest detectives and Camilleri is one of Europe's greatest crime writers * Daily Mirror *
Montalbano's colleagues, chance encounters, Sicilian mores, even the contents of his fridge are described with the wit and gusto that make this narrator the best company in crime fiction today * Guardian *
