CBC Commissions Adaptation of Louise Penny's Still Life

Still Life by Louise Penny. A Chief Inspector Gamache Mystery.

CBC has commissioned a made-for-television adaptation of Louise Penny's debut mystery, Still Life. The book, which introduces Armand Gamache, a Chief Inspector with the Sûreté du Québec, was the winner of multiple literary awards, including the 2006 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel, the 2006 CWA New Blood Dagger Award, the 2007 Anthony Award for Best First Novel, and several others.

In the book, Gamache and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it’s a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods, and is soon certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bowhunter.
