The Inspector Ghote in Keating's mysteries is a mild-mannered, intelligent, persistent and dedicated cop. He has an overbearing boss and a wife who loves him but who also knows what she wants. Naseeruddin Shah, a famous Indian actor, does an excellent job as the Inspector. Skarsgard plays the young Swede as enthusiastic, brave and a little callow. He and Ghote eventually develop mutual respect and liking. Some of the crooks involved with the diamonds come to believe that Skarsgard is a diamond thief, too, which causes a number of complications, some amusing and some dangerous.
The plot lines eventually come together in a reasonably satisfying way. The Perfect Murder is a pleasant mystery, interesting because of the local color (it was shot in Bombay and a good deal of the action takes place in Bombay neighborhoods and streets) and the performances of the actors.
This is one of the releases under the "Merchant-Ivory Productions" name. Ismail Merchant was the executive producer. The DVD is better than average, but the image and audio are both a little soft.
