Have you been watching the Longmire series on A&E the past three summers? This series is based on the books by Craig Johnson: http://www.craigallenjohnson.com/.
Excellent show and books about a sheriff in Wyoming named Walter Longmire, friend Henry Standing Bear, and Deputy Victoria Moretti. The first book in the series of eight is The Cold Dish and was the basis for the t.v. series.
It looks like the series has been "cancelled" but may be picked up by another network. Fans hope so. The weekly series takes place out west. There are several standing colorful characters each with their own mysteries in their background. Small town. Living and working with the neighboring Cheyenne reservation.
If you are a fan, let A&E know you want it to continue next summer!
