Protagonist of a series of detective novels by Michael Dibdin.

Zen is an Italian policeman of Venetian origin who has a strong knack for getting up the wrong people's noses. The books offer a perceptive (although written by a foreigner) and unsentimental view of the way that society functions in contemporary Italy, some way from both the tourist clichés and The Godfather; the books seem strongly influenced by the works of Leonardo Sciascia.
