Far more intelligent than any of the popular detective shows out of the USA, this is a fantastic series set in the town of Ferrara in the Po River Valley, famous for its fog and rain. One of the great things is you rarely see a sunny day in this series. The intelligence and dry humor of the detective, the affectionate and comical relationship with his assistant, the romance with the stunningly beautiful blond Italian speaking Russian attorney, the character who plays the coroner. This all may be too subtle for the other reviewer, but the character and plot alone place this series up with Morse.
Each episode is pretty ingenious, raising both moral issues and the perennial issue of the detectives stubborn insistence on getting to the truth above all else....
