One chapter of Masterpiece Mystery!’s summer of intrigue closes this weekend with the final episode in the Zen trio!

In the first episode, Detective Aurelio Zen deals with a politically charged murder and a vendetta-fueled killer who is after him. In the second episode, Zen investigates to find whether a disgraced aristocrat’s leap off a bridge was murder or suicide.

In the final episode, “Ratking,” a wealthy industrialist and political party funder is kidnapped, and the Ministry of Justice wants Zen to get the hostage back alive at any cost. But these kidnappers don’t seem to be playing by the rules: especially when they kill the lawyer who shows up with a ransom payment from the family. And that’s only the beginning.

A disgraced aristocrat jumps off a bridge. Or was he pushed? As usual, Detective Zen gets mixed signals from his scheming bosses: the Ministry of Justice wants a ruling of suicide, while a powerful and beautiful female prosecutor hints that Zen had better start looking for the murderer.

Zen, the latest in Masterpiece Mystery’s! “Summer of Intrigue” shows, premiered last Sunday and was an instant hit, according to all the chatter on Facebook and Twitter. The show, based on a trio of spellbinding cases based on the bestselling novels by Michael Dibdin, was shot on location around Rome, giving vivid life to the colorful settings, gorgeous women, twisted criminals, and a brooding, brilliant hero.
