Inspector Nardone and his squad bring all their forensic and investigative skills to bear on the search for gang lord Bosso. Rizzo reunites with his old flame, and a young woman from Muraro's past shows up. Directed by Fabrizio Costa, 2011, color.
Mario Nardone was a living legend in Milan in the 1950s and 60s. Based on the real-life historical figure who has been likened to an Italian Eliot Ness, Inspector Nardone arrives in Milan shortly after the Second World War, on a forced transfer from Parma where his no-nonsense temperament and innate sense of justice had gotten him into hot water with his superiors. Nardone is ironic, straightforward, persistently stubborn but endowed with a strong moral code and a great sense of humanity as he sets out to form a special squad to fight crime in the industrial capital of a prostrate Italy still under the effects of the war, and now torn asunder by political and economic contradictions. Directed by Fabrizio Costa, 2011. Starring Sergio Assisi, Giorgia Surina, Stefano Dionisi. In Italian with English subtitles.
