Rufus Sewell is just wonderful as Italian detective Aurelio Zen! “He’s Venetian you see--“ meaning he is different from most of the corrupt venal polizia in Roma, Italia. He’s incredible honest.
I watched these back in 2011 and it never even hit me that “Wait they’re speaking with British accents and it’s a Rome, Italy police dept!” Ha!
Delightfully well done--Sewell has real comedic chops...he’s fun, sexy, and VERY intuitive, intelligent. The woman who works with him is the sexiest Italian actress I’ve seen. Better than Sophia Loren. These two have great on screen chemistry. The view of the Italian countryside, the caves that permeate the hills, the incredible castles. High country robbers, intrigue--all wonderful.
