5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 5 Dec 2009
This is laugh-out-loud , thigh-lapping stuff. Whether taken in short viewings per episode, or watching the whole DVD, it makes for original, highly amusing but very human humour.

1.0 out of 5 stars Study the photo and details carefully, 5 Dec 2009
I was very disappointed on receiving this watch. It is a large, heavy piece, a great slab on the wrist, much thicker than I expected, with a wide steel frame surrounding the dial, which is what attracted my attention in the first place. Although it seems to keep time when unworn, I have noticed it running slow at times. Not for those who wish for subtlety, elegance or lightness in a watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Opens a new old world, 5 Dec 2009
Villainy and detection amidst the Burren, a small community on the Atlantic coast of Ireland. What is most attractive in this story is the law that is applied and practised back in that time, so completely different from Roman, English or other law. On occasion, it makes one confront one's own opinions and feelings about the rightness or wrongness of these old laws. They incorporate a detailed value system on property, people's station in life, and marriage. Everything has a price.

The action takes place around a small law school and its surrounding area. Running the school is the local judge Mara, who investigates matters as well. Lovers of crime stories should not be disappointed with the plot, nor the finely drawn cast of characters who avoid being caricatured. This book is about a woman who is empowered and respected, in a very male dominated society. I became aware that is written by a woman, simply through the attention to food, recipes and a feminine view on life. This is not to detract, but to reflect the gentle and quiet way that judge Mara goes about her duties faced with violence, deceit and danger to herself.
