Weed smoking, foulmouthed Rocco Schiavone is an offbeat Deputy Commissioner of the State Police. For disciplinary reasons he is transferred to the Alpine town of Aosta, far from his beloved Rome.

Dull and uninteresting Police Procedural
I'm a little suspicious of the high ranking for Schiavone. The episode plots are not just worn unoriginal tropes, they are done badly, plot holes abound making the audience engagement with the mystery of the crime utterly pointless. The main character is at times steeped in the most toxic of toxic masculinity, yet then veers bizarrely into low credibility political correctness in the extreme.
