Salerno is a detective for the Albuquerque Police Department. He and his partner were responsible for the investigation into Daniel Wormald, but they were ultimately deterred from pursuing him by Jimmy McGill.

History[]

Better Call Saul[]

Season 2[]

At the police station, Jimmy McGill accompanies Daniel Wormald to an interrogation room where Detective Salerno and another detective are waiting for him. Daniel nervously explains to the two detectives that he no longer needs their help: he personally hired a private investigator who tracked his baseball cards and the dispute was settled, thus eliminating the need for police involvement. Salerno and the other detective attempt to press for more details, but Jimmy encourages Daniel to leave the room and get a little air.

Now alone with the detectives, Jimmy explains that he knows the police have discovered the hiding space behind Daniel's baseboards and are, understandably, suspicious. Jimmy assures them that it is not used for anything illicit, but admits that it involves a private matter between Daniel and his (fictitious) “art patron.” Jimmy lies that the secret compartment in Daniel's living room is used to store “Crybaby Squat Cobbler” fetish videos that Daniel would send to his patron—that is, until the two had a spat and the spiteful patron stole the videos and the baseball cards. Since then, hearts have mended, the art patron has returned all stolen property, and Daniel does not wish to press charges. Salerno and the other detective accept the story but request that Jimmy and Daniel show them one of the videos, forcing the pair to fabricate one. ("Cobbler")
