Books turned into TV shows

Reblogged from Jenny Schwartz :
Cocaine Blues - Kerry Greenwood

I'm normally not a big fan of "spoiling" a book by turning it into a TV show or movie. Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is my big exception to this. Somehow, Kerry Greenwood's books didn't work for me, but I adore the TV series. The first episode of the third series aired last night and it was great fun. I think I'm shallow enough to just watch for the glorious costumes.
