By David Simon, co-creator of the Wire. It's fab, and the origin of much of the stuff in the series - have fun playing spot who the character is based on...

Thanks for this. We just watched whole first series in a TV orgy weekend and I'm totally hooked!

Oh, you have such joys waiting for you! Homicide is a great book - bit disconcerting that so much horrible stuff if actually real, but brilliant reading, nonetheless.

I am reading it at the moment!

As I was watching it, I kept thinking that people actually live that way and I felt like some spoilt middle-class do-gooder. Best thing I've seen for ages with such fully drawn characters. Any other good TV suggestions as we've got a free upgrade for a month?
