Wendy sent me a note (Thank you, Wendy!) telling me something that, well, might bring out the green-eyed monster in some of us. CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) Television aired the two hour movie Still Life last Sunday night.
Most of you know that Still Life is the first of multi-award-winning Louise Penny‘s Chief Inspector Gamache (Three Pines) mysteries. And as if that isn’t enough to make those of us who didn’t have access to this movie utter “Harumph!”, it is set in a beautiful Quebec village featuring the beauty of autumn’s colors. Sorry, Cozy Mystery Readers, but it just keeps getting more Harumph-able: It stars Nathaniel Parker as Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. (Most of you know Parker’s work as Inspector Lynley in that television series. And if you saw the latest BBC Bleak House, you know just how terrific an actor he is.)
So, for all of our Canadian friends up there, I hope Still Life is a terrific mystery movie and also, that you all were able to watch it. As for all of us down here, let’s hope Still Life makes it down our way soon!

(P.S. Wendy actually sent me the note telling me about Still Life BEFORE they aired the movie on television. When I was writing this entry, I thought it was going to air this Sunday night. My mistake!)
