Tonight A&E debuts its Longmire series based on Craig Johnson’s books about a Wyoming sheriff. I’m eager to see if his feisty deputy, Vic, retains her edginess in this TV version. If you haven’t read any of the Longmire series, it’s basically Tony Hillerman’s brand of mysteries transplanted to Wyoming. My main complaint about the first book in the series, The Cold Dish, is that at 354 pages, it’s too long. A good editor could have cut 100 pages and made it a better book.
