Using the same vivid format as the original BAFTA-winning single drama, and with director Birger Larsen (The Killing) returning to direct one of the films, this new series throws a stark and unsettling light on three very different cases. Rich in forensic and psychological detail, and with a unique depth of characterisation, each of the films picks apart a murder in all its terrible complexity. The story is heard from every angle and casts the viewer as a jury-member, forced to decide on guilt and innocence. Set amongst the moneyed upper classes of London's Belgravia, the picturesque but stifling environs of small-town Scotland and the punishing confines of a Leeds prison wing, all these stories dig deep into character and motive to unearth the hidden truths behind these shocking crimes: the disappearance of a wealthy philanthropist from her lover's home, the riverside killing of a Scottish doctor and the cold-blooded murder of an off-duty policeman. Mixing techniques of documentary with the power, invention and breathtaking visuals of drama, these haunting and graphic whodunnits live long in the mind.
