Storyline

In each story, Venetian detective commissioner Guido Brunetti investigates and solves one or more crimes, usually including murder, in the doges' city, with some help from uniformed sergeant Lorenzo Vianello. Meanwhile both Brunetti's family (head-strong son Raffi and daughter Chiara and wife Paola) and superiors, especially the jurisdiction's "vice-questore" Patta, more an ambitious politician then a law officer, often cause distraction or worse. Written by KGF Vissers

A perfect TV-series
25 August 2010 | by JohnDoes3See all my reviews

I read half of the Donna Leon novels (which I liked) and the series is a very clever and very faithful adaptation of them. The writers/producers/director(s) have been able to add small charming details (of everyday life, such as the special relationship between Elettra and Brunetti) that make it even better, and delete those not absolutely necessary and required.

The series, made by the Germans (and not by the Americans or the Italians)(Italians do not know the novels since they are not translated into their language, oh!) is very well produced : budgets were obviously high, the series was shot in Venice, Italy, which means they have not made fun of the spectators All key players - Germans - not only pass for real Venetians but are simply perfect, especially (Brunetti's) Uwe Kockisch (he seems to be 45 y-o but has actually 20 more, huh!). My faves are ...all women characters/actresses, yes !

Strongly recommended !
