Inspector Montalbano is an engaging hero — honest, decent and loyal, he has his own way of doing things, and his superiors regard him as something of a loose cannon.
One of the strengths of the novels is Montalbano's ability to navigate through a murky world, a world of shady connections and favours owed and owing, without compromising himself beyond what he can live with. There is a great deal of humour in his character, such as his unconditional love for silence while enjoying a good meal, but the primary subtext is hard criticism of the social and political situation of both the Sicilian and Italian contexts.
In fact, Camilleri has said that social commentary " In many crime novels, the events seem completely detached from the economic, political and social context in which they occur. This also allowed me to show the progression and evolution in the character of Montalbano. In fact, a determining factor of his success as a Sicilian policeman seems to be his ability to bridge between different cultures. There is the "northern" force, coming from Rome, Milan that attempts to standardize regulations and increase transparency.
On the opposite side is the particularistic "southern" culture with complex webs of relationships that affect the way things are done. Montalbano excels at balancing between these two, while being true to his principles. In , a statue of the inspector was placed in the centrally located Via Roma, in Porto Empedocle, commissioned by the mayor at the time to Italian artist Giuseppe Agnello , it does not resemble the Montalbano we see on TV at all, picturing him with his hand on a lamppost, wrinkles and a full head of hair, just like described in Camilleri's books.
Since , RAI has been producing a television series based on the novels, called in Italian, Il commissario Montalbano.

Camilleri's writings have enjoyed, and still enjoy, a huge popular success in Italy. It is the thirteenth novel in the internationally popular Inspector Montalbano series.
Complicating the investigation is the strange behaviour of Augello, who has become morose and quarrelsome, thus making hell for everyone at the police station. Meanwhile the investigation into the cut-up body, impossible to identify, becomes more entangled due to a complaint by the beautiful South American Dolores whose husband, a ship officer, has disappeared. A not unimportant fact is. What with the search for the missing husband, Augello's strange behaviour, old mafiosi rituals which recall biblical passages, Montalbano's faith in his closest friends begins to falter.
It has become a tourist attraction due to its mention in Andrea Camilleri's series of detective stories about Commissario Montalbano ; the Scala is formed by a sedimentary rock with a characteristic white color. It lies between two sandy beaches, is accessed through a limestone rock formation in the shape of a staircase, hence the name; the latter part of the name derives from the frequent raids carried on by Moors.

Politically, while the paper kept backing the progressive left, its approach to governmental parties changed: its traditional opposition to Bettino Craxi's line was coupled with overtures to Ciriaco De Mita , one of the leading figures of the left wing of the Christian Democrats ; this seemed to pay off as in la Repubblica sold an average of , copies, about , more than in Ten years the same student is pictured as an adult.

Thanks to his unique professional insight and even more to his feelings as a sensitive man, Montalbano concludes the investigation, moving in between the boundaries set by the world of tradition and that of modernity. In his fifties, examining his life and a future that seems to be saturated with senseless technology and hopeless inhumanity, with corruption and globalisation rendering everything shapeless, Montalbano feels out of place and lonely. Beyond these considerations and uncertainties that increase the reality of the character, author Camilleri continues the "saga" of Inspector Montalbano, confirming the wisdom of his skillful narrative, which combines a charming language reaching out to the Sicilian language, with the suspenseful plot and the vivid characters.
