In this paper, I examine the case of Donna Leonís Guido Brunetti series (1992-). Within the limits of a short presentation I will analyse aspects of the cultural translation practised by the American Leon, a long-time resident of Venice, but also the effects of the seriesí transfer to German television (Commissario Brunetti, ARD/Das Erste (2000-2002: 4 episodes) 2003 (with Uwe Kockisch in lead role)-2013 15 episodes).
