Inspector Montalbano

Treasure Hunt

Series 2 - Episode 12 Treasure Hunt



Treasure Hunt is a peculiarly episodic tale, verging on the surreal. Salvo becomes a hero after climbing a fireman’s ladder to deal with septuagenarian siblings – religious crackpots taking potshots at sinners.

He takes custody of two blow-up sex dolls, much to the amusement of his pal Ingrid – will these two ever “get a room”? But things turn nasty when a girl vanishes and a loon starts posting Salvo riddles. They lead to his most compromising situation yet, but charismatic star Luca Zingaretti ensures Salvo never loses his cool.


An elderly, religious couple barricade themselves in their home and begin shooting from the windows, and the discovery of a disfigured inflatable doll inside the house sparks a macabre treasure hunt. Montalbano must work quickly to solve a series of riddles delivered to the Vigata police station if he is to solve the mysterious disappearance of a woman. Drama, starring Luca Zingaretti.
