The book's author, José Rodrigues dos Santos, after watching the first episode, told Público newspaper that he was "pleasantly surprised, because there has been a great evolution in Portuguese fiction."
Pedro Lopes told the same newspaper that the aim was "to make a series that was deeply Portuguese, but also Brazilian, and that could reach different audiences, those who like puzzles, those who like action and those who like complex characters."
The book that gave rise to the series was published in 2005 and has sold more than 200,000 copies worldwide.
Codex 632 premieres on October 19 on Globoplay in Portugal and Brazil.
