Ann Cleeves

I have now read all five DCI Vera Stanhope murder mysteries by Ann Cleeves.
It did take more than one book for me to warm up to this character.
Too bad the series is not showing here in Canada.
According to the author's website, the producer, Elaine Collins, discovered Ann Cleeve's books in an Oxfam bookshop.
Odd how things turn up sometimes.

Vera is played by  award winning actress Brenda Blethyn and from the short clips, I've seen, she appeared to be a perfect choice for the part.
Let's hope that Netflix will wise up and add the series to their line up.

I'm including a short clip I found on YouTube.
Maybe you'll become a fan too.
