Nicolas Le Floch series by Jean-Francois Parot

For those who are fond of Paris and/or French history, I discovered this interesting mystery series.
Set during the reigns of Louis XV and Louis XVI, Commissioner Nicolas Le Floch solves crime in Paris and its environs. So far, there are 12 books in the series, and there are translations available in several languages.
If you can read French well, the website for Jean-Francois Parotis chock full of background info to the series.
The Nicolas Le Floch series was adapted for France 2 and is available with English subtitles on DVD. Love the show's theme music! I saw some episodes over the summer when it showed on a local channel.

That's interesting - I think 6 have been translated in the Uk so far. I didn't know it had been filmed too, thanks for that info!
