The Guardian is reporting that the company that produced the Wallander films, which recently aired as part of PBS' Masterpiece Mystery!, is developing two additional series.
Three scripts have been commissioned based on the Aurelio Zen mysteries, written by the late Michael Dibdin, for BBC1. The Zen mysteries are set in Italy. The novels being adapted are Ratking, Vendetta, and Dead Lagoon.
Another drama has been commissioned for ITV1 based on the 2002 novel Aftermath by Peter Robinson, the 12th in the series featuring Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks.
Both of these mystery series are hoped to become franchises for their respective networks.
