Zen on PBS!

That's as in Aurelio Zen, not Buddhist Zen.

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.
