Zen is a detective crime story set in Rome, Italy. The title character, Aurelio Zen, is an outsider. A Venetian, he has a reputation for honesty and integrity. This makes him the perfect fall guy, given the machinations of the corrupt Italian power structure. Zen, however, is not as straightforward as they take him to be. The series is based on a series of books by British crime writer Michael Dibdin. The character is played to perfection by Rufus Sewell. This is good stuff. Join us as we take a look into the life of Aurelio Zen.
