I have to agree with some of the comments on the original post that many of these series would offer a problem of scope. As Grant said, action, more specifically battle scenes would come as a challenge... However, many of the series listed wouldn't have that much epic battle scenes with huge armies.
Anyway, let's dream that we could see Glokta slowly making his way toward an interrogation room, doing his click, tap, pain...
