Mystery with Aurelio ZEN

You know how some songs inspire?

Well, this is one of those...

BBC Drama 2011 opening credits
by Adrian Johnston & Terry Davies

No lyrics.

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


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



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...
