The "Dublin Murders" trailer is here and it looks mysterious as hell. The series begins on Starz tonight, November 10.
For fans of Irish-American author Tana French, the TV adaption of the Dublin Murder Squad series has been a long time coming.
The series has just finished up on BBC in the UK and on RTÉ in Ireland and it received rave reviews so naturally, the hype in the US right now is growing by the minute.
Thankfully, our wait is very almost over with the first episode to air on Starz in the US tonight, Sunday, November 10, at 8 pm ET.
As the countdown clock grew shorter, the "Dublin Murders" trailer was finally released some months ago and it definitely lives up to expectations.
What is the Dublin Murder Squad series?
This five-book series by Irish-American Tana French elevated the author to the title of “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years,” according to the Washington Post.
As a child, Rob Ryan was one of three friends to go missing in a local wood but the only one of the trio to be found again. Twenty years later and he is working as a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad when the murder of a twelve-year-old girl in the same suburb where he once lived digs up his past. Ryan works with his partner and best friend Cassie Maddox to solve the case creepily similar to the mystery of his childhood.
An eight-part TV adaptation of the series was first announced in September 2017, to be based on the material from the first two books of the series, "In The Woods" and "The Likeness."
