If you can speak Spanish, I truly recommend for you to try this series. The intrigue of each episode reminds me of old novels by Agatha Cristie. The action is really well combined with relations between people, the platonic love between the main characters spices up the things. It's different than other series because the action it's not only about solving mysteries and following clues, but also the unusual environment. We have corrupted priests, a detective and hot priest, which does good deeds but often does not follow the rules, a priest which kills and a cardinal which has a son. This series is missing the violence and the sexuality characteristic to American series, which is not a flow but a gain. A plus of this series is also the fact that it reveals the politic games within the roman-catholic church. I truly recommend for you to try it.
