R.I.P.
The Columbo series was very very popular in Italy (but also in the rest of Europe): the so called "inverted detective story" format (where the perpetrator is known since the begin) worked well only with Columbo. Many others tried to copy that format, unsuccessfully.

I LOVED him in 'Wings of Desire' where it was suggested he was a former angel."I can't see you,but I know you're there.' RIP,campanero.

I remember one episode in which one person tried to kill her by giving her poisoned English muffins, but still never got to see her.
They actually made a series in 1979 called 'Mrs.Columbo' which starred Kate Mulgrew(of Star Trek:Voyager fame).Think it lasted a season.As Mulgrew was only 38 when she started on Voyager in the mid '90s,she would have been in her early twenties then.Weird casting,eh?
