Regular expression to import books

I have a mobi collection with this structure:

Lippert, George Norman (2007). (James Potter 01) James Potter y la encrucijada de los mayores [3089].mobi


Author (year published). (Serie Serie Number) Title [ID].mobi

What regular expression could I use?

Thanks a lot.

Being a Newbie, too, I've searched the Calibre forums and found this VERY useful post by Penguinaka

There are MANY variations offered up here.

obtw... I'm using a 'freebie' tool (Donations are appreciated) called
Bulk Rename Utility
and the RegEx expressions from Penguinaka (and others) allow me to
do all the clean-up BEFORE I try to add to Calibre.
