I love it too !
I wonder why the low rating ? this is a great series. Actors are excellent ,the plots interesting and the stories original.

don't bother
this is NOT a new series - it is in fact edited versions of 90 minute episodes shown back in 2006. i.e. missing around half an hour. Buy the DVDs instead.

artistic licence gone mad
Disappointing waste of time to those who have read the books. I won't be watching any more.

Not the best
Being a huge fan of Ian Rankins Series of Inspector Rebus books, I was disapointed by the tv series - doesnt even come close to the books.
