The dazzling Guido Caprino stars as Inspector Luca Manara, a dreamy man and a supervisor's worst nightmare. He dismisses procedure and refuses to kowtow to local power players, but he's also without ego and a gifted investigator. When Manara arrives on a motorcycle to head up the police department, his offbeat methods endear him to colleagues and build espirit de corps. He prefers to be called by his first name, doesn't see the need for a warrant, and arrives at crime scenes via motorcycle rather than a police car. Quiet country life in Tuscany drives him crazy, but at least the new job offers a fresh start and the chance to leave broken hearts behind. The fresh start doesnt last long, however; an old female friend from the police academy, Lara, shows up for work minutes after his arrival. She's living with her Aunt Caterina, who's also got a nose for solving crimes. They're an unlikely trio, but between Manara's investigative instincts, Lara's technical prowess and Aunt Caterina's common sense, they get pretty good at cracking the cases.

What a fun, upbeat series without gruesome murders. Interesting plots and very enjoyable characters. Also love the German Shepherd who helps solve crimes. Commissario Manara’s charisma hinders his career somewhat with women falling all over him; it is amusing. He is a pleasure to watch with dazzling smile and stunning blue eyes. Being handsome does not stop him from solving crimes. As a long-time Montalbano fan, this series carries a more modern thread with females incorporated into roles in the police department!

This is a far cry from the Detective Montalbano series which we came to love. None of the cast has any chemistry with each other and worst yet, sex seems to be the domineering topic. To round up, there is always the stereotyped chief who is good for nothing other than trying to bury cases under the carpet.
