Zen and the Art of Murder Detection

Ah, Italia.  Behind a façade of gorgeous architecture and cool sophisticates hides a culture steeped in political corruption.  Venetian inspector Aurelio Zen has earned a reputation for integrity, but he suspects that makes him a target for manipulation.  He’s repeatedly called into clandestine meetings for new orders about high-profile murders, but the information he receives doesn’t always add up.  Based on the books Vendetta, Cabal, and Ratking by Michael Dibdin, the BBC production Zen stars Rufus Sewell as the suave yet self-deprecating detective.  Can he balance the initial sparks of an office romance, the search for truth, and the shadows of power dogging his steps?  Enlightenment awaits with Zen.
