Rizzoli & Isles

Rizzoli and Isles

Rizzoli & Isles features homicide detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) as they solve crime in Boston. The two women are complete opposites, but despite that best friends.

Based on Tess Gerritsen’s Novels

A while back I read The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen. Later I found out that the TV series Rizzoli & Isles, which premiered on TNT in July this year, is based on Tess Gerritsen’s novels featuring Jane Rizzoli. Of course I had to check it out, and I made sure to lock my doors before turning on the TV…

Serial Killer Returns

I have watched a couple of episodes now and the show is ok. Worth watching? Yes. Spectacular? No. The episodes where the serial killer from The Surgeon returns have been the best so far. I also like that the main characters are two smart, strong, competent women.

A Very Different Jane

It is worth noting that Jane in the novel and Jane in the TV series are very different. She is nothing like what I had expected; neither her appearance nor her personality corresponds with the novel’s description.

One comment

  1. Ok… I have seen two parts on Swedish television, and likes it! SO, shall I read the book and risk being irritated over the mismatch, or forget the book and enjoy the series on tv….
