Based on the detective novels by Michael Dibdin, this Rome-based mini-series finds our protagonist Aurelio Zen (Rufus Sewell, The Pale Horse) struggling to maintain his integrity amidst political corruption, wealth and aristocracy, and vengeful gangsters. Things only get more complicated when he falls for Tania Moretti (Caterina Murino), the police chief’s married assistant. While only one season was made, the show is the perfect escape to the romantic back alleys of Rome.
