MsMcCawber review below mine has it right. The acting of the entire cast is top notch. Add to it that the stories are all very creative, you just can't miss with "Rebus"!

There are two Rebus DVD series and both are darkly entertaining and well done. Ken Stott portrays an older Rebus and John Hannah plays a younger version. Edinburgh is beautiful and a character in itself. Also highly recommend the Complete Rebus Short Stories by Ian Rankin.
If you enjoyed the Rebus series you may enjoy the Wallander series. There are three Wallander DVD series, and each one is brilliant, especially the "Krister Henriksson" Wallander. (BBC's English-language Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh and Swedish versions with Krister Henriksson and Rolf Lassgärd.)
This Wallander endorsement is not meant to detract anything from the weary, lived-in Rebus by any means. There are similarities in both fictional detectives.
Enjoy the dark entertainment and brilliant acting of both Rebus DVD series and, if you have the time, reading the Rebus short stories is time well spent.

Ken Stott is the best Rebus ever - in fact he has more charisma than the character in the books. An excellent show!
