Mystery with Aurelio ZEN


You know how some songs inspire?

Well, this is one of those...


ZEN

No lyrics.

Just a oo-ooo, whooo, aha-haaa's kind of thing going with that Bossa Nova feel.
LOVE IT!

Finally finished watching my DVR saved episodes from last month of ZEN starring Rufus Sewell as detective Aurelio Zen.

LOVED THEM!

LOVED HIM!

What does an honest cop do when his bosses are on the side of the lawbreakers? Outwitting prosecutors, politicians, mobsters and run-of-the-mill kidnappers and killers, Detective Aurelio Zen brings justice to modern-day Italy, whether the authorities want it or not, on Zen, a trio of spellbinding cases based on the bestselling novels of by British crime writer Michael Dibdin, airing on Masterpiece July 17-31, 2011.

Rufus Sewell (Middlemarch) stars as Zen, a Roman police detective hailing from Venice, where "Zen" is a local shortening of the name Zeno. Separated from his wife and living with his mother, he is too frazzled by his job to think about romance. That is, until he meets Tania Moretti (Caterina Murino), his chief's new secretary. -per Masterpiece Mystery


IF you like the tv series, Mad Men, you may like this too because it is filmed in that same suave and sophisticated style.

YOU CAN still catch these...

Watch free online until August 31 at Masterpiece Mystery.

AND, available on DVD.

fyi: the series is based on the mystery books by Michael Dibdin. This series is now officially on my WANT list!

  4. Have you seen the 1997 movie Dangerous Beauty? (You must!) Takes place in Italy in the 16th century. Here is a summary: The true story of the woman, a poet and courtesan, who used looks, wit and seduction to defy the conventions of 16th century Venice. Oh, Rufus is one of the key characters.
