By Barbara Nadel
While a brutal homicide shocks Istanbul's rundown Jewish area, the Turkish police strength unleashes their most sensible weapon - the chain-smoking, brandy-swilling Inspector Cetin Ikmen, husband to a strict Muslim girl (who disapproves of his ingesting) and loving father of 8 (with one other at the way).
