Rinaldo Pazzi was a corrupt detective and minor antagonist in the novel, movie and adapted TV show Hannibal.
Rinaldo Pazzi, descendant of the Pazzi family, was once a reputed detective among his fellows. One day, he was assigned to the "Il Monstro" case (a serial killer who murdered 16 people). However, Rinaldo Pazzi fell from grace when it was revealed that the man he framed and arrested for his crimes was actually innocent.
In 1990, after several years of non-activity due to his mistake, Rinaldo Pazzi discovered that the Library Curator was actually Hannibal Lecter, an insane yet sophisticated and very intelligent american serial killer who was framed for eating multiple individuals. The latter was actively researched by Mason Verger - the only Lecter's known survival victim - who was willing to do everything to kill the cannibal. In order to get $3,000,000, Rinaldo Pazzi worked alongside Verger and tried to caught Lecter and bring him back to the old pedophile; eventually, the corrupt detective caught Lecter on Dante. However, Hannibal easily beat him and tied him to a chair. After extracting the informations he wanted, Lecter cut Pazzi open and pushed him out of the window; ironically, he was disemboweled in his ancestors' manners.
A collected and wise investigator, Rinaldo Pazzi was once reputed to be a hardworking and exceptionally intelligent detective, able to find many clues and resolve many enigmatic cases. This, however, did not last long as Rinaldo Pazzi quickly became corrupted and downright greedy when he fell from grace due to his own mistake, which led him to work along horrible criminals such as Verger and Cordell. Even though, he remained a calm and thoughtftul individual; despite this, he clearly underestimated Lecter's strength due to his arrogance, which led to his ironical death.
- Pazzi is one of the few Hannibal's victims who was never eaten by the cannibal; instead, he was gutted alive, which is also one of the most painful death punishment Hannibal ever inflicted.
