I've read all of the Commisario Brunettio books and have seen several Donna Leon films in German. I know Venice well, have visited there 2x and spent a cold Feb. week there the lat time, living on Lido and buying unique vegetables and a bottle of wine at a local market at the end of each day. We were there with our two small sons and rode the Vaporetti to rest our feet. I know the flavor of Venice, and I know the flavor of Venice that's presented in Donna Leon's books. I can tell you that the German actors in her films play the Italian roles exceedingly convincingly. Those films give the real flavor of life in Venice, and of the Comissario and his family.
