Punchier, More Engaging Language & Style

Now that flapper sleuth Miss Fisher is well advanced in her second series on ABC television, it's salutary to ponder how her parallel career in crime fiction is travelling. James once happily observed that Inspector Dalgliesh inevitably resembled Roy Marsden after the actor first embodied her poet philosopher hero. Ian Rankin, on the other hand, recalled getting rather drunk on a transnational trip to Australia after watching actor John Hannah, who had just optioned Rebus, in The Mummy during the in flight entertainment. Hannah was simply not the type of Rebus Rankin had in mind when he created his dour detective. Fortunately, Kerry Greenwood had some say in the choice of Essie Davis to portray Phryne Fisher and the actress certainly looks the part, from her ''neat bob'' as ''shiny as patent leather'' to her well turned ankles.

Meanwhile, Phryne encounters an old flame, Dr John Wilson, from her years as an ambulance driver in World War I. Wilson is in Melbourne accompanying the brilliant mathematician Rupert Sheffield. The latter is in Australia to give a lecture, but appears to be the target of an assassination attempt.

of an orchestral conductor who has been stifled with ''quite a lot of sheets of Mendelssohn's oratorio Elijah stuffed down his throat''. Not surprisingly, suspicion falls on the members of the amateur Melbourne Harmony Choir who are about to perform the piece. Phryne's investigation thus affords Greenwood ample opportunity to regale her readers with the inner workings of such choirs, as well as just how Elijah should be performed. The dead conductor, it would appear, was murdering Mendelssohn.

This is where the screen Phryne and the book Phryne part company. The TV Phryne is a flirt; the literary Phryne follows through and has her man, whoever that might be, exactly as she chooses. As a consequence, Phryne's erotic adventures are as much a part of her literary career as the cases she solves.

Like her heroine, Greenwood has never been more confident and confronting, which leads to the cheering conclusion that while we might applaud TV Phryne's onscreen triumphs, the Phryne of the fiction is dancing to her own inimitable tune.

There are, of course, many other pleasures to be had. Like Dorothy L. Sayers, who famously regaled her readers with a treatise on campanology in The Nine Tailors, Greenwood is not averse to some well placed arcane knowledge; this time it's mathematics and music.

While Phryne's libido has always been voracious, on television she is routinely accompanied by the buttoned down Detective Jack Robinson in a flirtatious relationship that can only work as long as it is unconsummated.

Phryne, never one to be outdone, responds in withering kind. Onlooker John Wilson is amused. The brilliant Rupert Sheffield, he notes, may just have met his match. And so he has.

However, there are some significant differences between what we will see Prada Wallet Pink on the screen and read in the pages of Murder with Mendelssohn, Greenwood's 20th crime novel to feature Phryne. For example, there is a sex scene in the book that is highly unlikely to make it onto TV, except perhaps in an R rated cable version. It involves one hitherto ''frigid'' gay man, one (arguably) bisexual male, and the mischievous Phryne.
