I've watched the DCI Banks TV series starring Stephen Tompkinson and enjoyed it. I only recently discovered it was based on Peter Robinson's books. It doesn't sound like they really appeal to you, though.

They're good police procedurals. I got off on a rocky start with the series but I quite enjoyed the third one (which I read before this second one). I like the narrator in the audiobooks. I think I might have seen one of the TV episodes but I haven't really watched the series.

Ah, that's encouraging. I'll see if Audible has Robinson and try a clip. My library may carry him, too.

We liked the cast in the TV series which helped keep us invested in the show. There are so many police / crime investigation programs that they all tend to blur together after a while, so it's always a plus to have actors that make the characters really memorable.

So far I've been getting the audios from the library, but they only have the first few (about eight in all) and I'm not sure if I'll continue after that or not (my mother has a lot in paperback but I'm having a harder time fitting in non-audio books). I'm going to have to switch to something else after my current one though because I think I need a break from the series (four in a row is a bit much).

I'm mostly looking for a decent mystery in a police procedural, whether on TV or no. Memorable characters can add to my investment, but they can also annoy me if I don't like them.

At this point, I've read and watched so many mysteries and detective / crime shows that I usually have the whodunnit figured out early on. These days engaging characters and atmospheric locals / writing have become more important for my overall enjoyment.
