My mom LOVED Michael Dibdin's mystery books set in contemporary Italy. (Though my very favorite is not of the Zen series, but a stand alone called Dirty Tricks - really entertaining and skillful unreliable narrator.
And now this adaptation airs on PBS. I'm so sorry she didn't live to enjoy. It looks so yummy
I love Rufus Sewall, and frankly he is a bit more glamourous than described in the books (I can't begrudge this change). But much else is the same: Scrupulous integrity is still a slur in the Italian police force.
Can't wait for this series to premiere later this month!
Here is the good looking and tempting preview:
Watch Zen Preview on PBS. See more from Masterpiece.
