  Created by Antti Pesonen, Minna Virtanen. With Krista Kosonen, Sibel Kekilli, Tommi Korpela, Jani Volanen. Kosonen plays the exceptionally gifted undercover cop Mari Saari/10(12). Black Book (or Zwartboek,as it's called in Europe)is directed & co written by Paul Verhoeven (with Gerard Soetman,who collaborated with Verhoeven on many screenplays for films in his native Holland).

As events continue to unfold after Ukraine’s parliamentary elections last Sunday, Taylor-Lind tells the TED Blog about her experiences during those harrowing days.   It’s a series I’ve seen before and am all too familiar with; in fact, one of the images has been the screensaver on my computer for the past year. Landing on that image during that 1 a.m. social media dive, though, was all I needed to book an impulsive ticket overseas to Italy.
