Willful behavior : A young woman is murdered, but Brunetti can find no sexual or financial motive. She was set to inherit a fortune from her grandmother, a woman very much alive and obsessed with clearing her husband's name from the accusation of art theft during the Mussolini years. The case draws Brunetti into a search for lost art and buried secrets from the bleakest days of modern Italian history.--Container
Blood from a stone : Fake designer sunglasses and handbags - reason enough for murder? As Commissario Brunetti investigates what seems to be a gangland execution among rival immigrant African peddlers of knockoff luxury goods, he discovers dozens of raw diamonds in the apartment of an informant. The trail leads to a viper's nest of government secrecy, corruption, and dirty politics ; his boss pressures him to drop the case.--Container

Germans playing Italians, and, specifically, the moody, soulful Venetians, is bizarre.
Never have I encountered such non-emotive, barely humourous Italians. Particularly baffling is why Inspector Brunetti has a reputation as a stellar investigator. I was waiting for evidence of this which would be really intriguing given that he is unarmed, often non-speaking and goes almost everywhere with a uniformed colleague. A shame that an Italian production company didn't make this series. Thoroughly German. Nice scenery, though, and the terrace of the Brunetti family's apartment may take your breath away.

I found this series very engrossing and the characters very likable. German speaking Venetians is no worse than British speaking ones as we so often see in English scripts set at other European sites like Rome ie. Zen.

German actors playing the German idea of Italians in Venice. Horrible!
