Editorial Reviews

(In Italian with English Subtitles) A passion for solving difficult cases makes Franco Soneri Ferraras best investigator but also its most difficult. At crimes scenes he stands apart, inscrutable, chomping on a cigar and trying to see what others are missing. Hes brusque and irascible but he and his team manage to discover what others would like to keep hidden: addictions, pedophilia, secret loves, and even old injustices left over from World War II. His skill at the job may help him get at the truth, but it takes its toll on his relationship with the beautiful Ukrainian lawyer, Angela Cornelio. Filmed on location in the atmospheric countryside of northern Italy, these mysteries are based on the bestselling crime novels by Valerio Varesi. Episode 1: The Winter Sea - Two senior citizens are found at the bottom of the river in their car. Was it suicide...or homicide? Episode 2: Lost Children - Inspector Soneri offers to take an orphan boy home with him in an effort to solve a murder case. Episode 3: No Sign of Stopping - Inspector Soneri investigates a hit-and-run fatality, and he and Angela discuss the idea of starting a family. Episode 4: A Doll's House - Soneri investigates the brutal killing of a prostitute, while Angela travels back to Kiev for personal as well as professional reasons. Episode 5: Parental Rating A popular teenaged girl from a well-known family is found killed. Inspector Soneri and his team learn that she was making secret trips to Bologna. Episode 6: False Papers Inspector Soneri is all ready for a reassignment to headquarters in Rome, when a case comes up he cant walk away from. A local high-profile attorney is found dead in his apartment, and there seems to be a connection between him and Soneris ex-girlfriend, Angela.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soneri is back: cranky but good! October 6, 2012
By AS
Verified Purchase
Series 2 confirms all the highs and lows of series 1 (please see my other review), but with a few differences. This time, the relationship between Soneri and lawyer Cornelio is mostly strained and confrontational. Cornelio's fiercely independent and secretive nature rubs Soneri's suspicious, dominant personality the wrong way. While still being a dedicated, brilliant detective, Soneri is often cranky and frustrated as his cases seem to take a toll on him. The prospect of him moving to Rome to head an anti-terrorist squad comes up in each episode and is quite tiresome: why not wait until the last two or three episodes to hint that the series as we know it is about to end? Go figure. But when all is said and done, all the good things I loved about series 1 are still there and I can't help but clap my hands and exclaim: Bravo!

4.0 out of 5 stars Foggy characters, foggy town January 13, 2013
I enjoy all of the international mysteries on MHZ, and have sampled most of them. Soneri's character is a believable, dedicated investigator, but his relationship to Angela, his lawyer girlfriend, leaves me cold. I hope he eventually terminates their relationship and moves to Rome where he will be facing the challenges of running a counterterrorism department. The writers could work more on developing the characters around Soneri, such as the forensics doctor, his superior, and his assistant. The rest all seem to blend into the background of fog. Is there really that much fog in Ferrara?
Despite my obvious criticisms, I woud still watch all of the series, as the stories are very unpredictable and interesting. The scenery is great, and the main character, Franco Soneri is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than series 1 October 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
So far, I have watched only three of the six episodes. It is even better than series 1: interesting plots, very good actors, beautiful views of Ferrara and the Po. Note also: The protagonists' private life does not interfere with the investigation (no sex scenes); there is no gratuitous violence (murders of course, but not on-screen); and the dialogue is in good standard Italian (no bad language, no slang) with good sound. Great entertainment that children can watch too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining series. April 26, 2014
Verified Purchase
Great story line. Subtitles can be a pain but I knew that when I ordered the first two seasons. Scenery in Italy is interesting and the acting is very good, except for any fight scenes which can be pretty hookey. Chemistry between Luca and Natasha is fun to watch. I'll be getting series 3.

I am really loving the Fog and Crimes series. Everything is good, dialogue, characters, and location. Although the setting is in a different part of Italy, if you enjoyed watching Inspector Montalbano I am sure you will like Fog and Crimes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sooo.... Italian !! July 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
The main character, Soneri, is apparently the hero of the entire Italian police force !! Incredibly macho but very likeable ! The setting and overall presentation of plots carries one along well and one becomes absorbed in Soneri's "genius!!" I was a little sorry that I came to the end of series having ordered all the DVD's. Yes, would recommend it.
