It's a crying shame, because the cast is stellar, but the ways in which the adaptation not only cuts out significant chunks of the book but also misses the point of large parts of it is equally parts irritating and telling.

The cast were incredibly frustrated about it, too.

There is a level on which I suspect that I am a very idiosyncratic reader of these novels in that I read them in sequence, I don't care about mysteries per se, and I read them as a sequence.

I read all of the non-Harriet books in whatever order I discovered them in my parents' house, but was then given the Harriet Vane quartet in sequence as birthday or holiday presents by my parents, which I think worked out fine.
