Interesting how they take the basic plot of the books and completely rework the rest. Not just in this season.
I read that season 7 will be the last.
That has been one of its great strengths. Somehow they managed, of course with the help of Connolly himself, to mash up the books and change whole plots and still keep it very "Boschian." I'd say it's rare to have an author not only allow such major changes, but participate in it. Sounds like I'm going to be disappointed in season six, but I hope the essential LA-ness is still there.
