SAFE — Harlan Coben has sold over 75 million books worldwide, mostly set in suburban settings where something dark is lurking beneath the surface, two of which were adapted into fun, if a little far-fetched available-on-Netflix adaptations The Five , and now Safe , which featured a welcome return of Michael C. Hall to the small screen. If you enjoyed them — get ready for more — Coben just signed a Netflix development deal where 14 of his novels will be turned into limited series.
The story of six lifelong friends obsessed with smell and power games, faced with a murder of one of their own, is not for everyone, but it holds its own as an audacious addition to this list. LA MANTE — Netflix invested in a number of French murder mysteries to add to their ever-growing repertoire of binge-worthy TV and La Mante direct translation: preying mantis , a rare case of a brutal, smart, gorgeous FEMALE serial killer played with steely resolve by the ever-luminous, former-face-of-Chanel Carol Bouquet and a relationship between her and her son now a police officer as they try to solve a series of copycat murders is one of the stronger ones.
A great cast, but an unfortunate ending. A year-old girl disappears from a small town, and the forest where another young girl was discovered years a go holds the answers.
Best Murder Mysteries to Stream and Binge Watch - Edition
Based on a best-selling novel, the story starts with a discovery of a dead horse atop of a mountain, and descends into a Hannibal Lecter-esque game of cat-and-mouse between the police and a notorious, imprisoned serial killer, who was once one of their own. HIDDEN — Wales is emerging as a strong destination for mystery settings saw Requiem and Keeping Faith join Hinterland and with good reason: the dark, moody landscapes led themselves perfectly to dark, moody secrets, but Hidden is a personal favorite.
A tense, claustrophobic story with Sian Reese-Williams as DI Cadi John trying to solve a case of a serial sex offender who keeps women captive for years at a time, but has deep wounds of his own to contend with, is almost too tense for words. MISSING — A strongly acted, very effective anthology series featuring two separate cases in 2 available seasons — first one focusing on a five-year-old boy, the second one a teenage girl.
Very good, dark stuff. Did the owl do it? The conversation continues. Looming large over them all is Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong , one of the most charismatic, deeply disturbed, but also heartbreaking villains of our time.

A fun crime story, yes, but also an unflinching insight into what havoc untreated mental illness can do, even to the brightest of minds. I still maintain Debra should have known better. JINX — The six part show by Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smerling the team behind Oscar nominated Capturing The Friedmans follows the story of Robert Durst with Durst willingly participating an heir around whom most humans seem to be dying whenever it is convenient for him.
While we often complain about mysteries not wrapping up in one season, Keepers could have used some more room to breathe and investigate. Season two is now available.
Dark Side Of The Moon (Laura Cardinal Series Book Two) By J Carson Black Zip
What makes a daughter kill her mother? What makes a mother be the kind of mother that gets murdered by her own blood? Prepared to be fascinated, outraged, and make sure you have someone to discuss this with after it is over. Watch the original and skip the Maria Bello fiasco American network TV tried to shove down our throats a few seasons back. Which is a shame because the 10 episodes available do it all: offer some truly chilling crimes for our heroine to solve, have a great underlying personal mystery that keeps her going, and villains both far and near to her that are worth the slow burn.
While the third season feels a little stale, the first two were amazing. Gillian Anderson does a great job of creating yet another iconic detective that, if this show takes off after first season and it should , will maybe help us all not think of her as Agent Dana Scully 4ever. Set in Northern Ireland, it follows her as Stella Gibson, trying to track down a murderer and stalker of women before time runs out. The interesting turn here is that we meet the killer as soon as we meet Stella, and while his identity never being in question at least to the viewer could have been a downfall of the show, the cat-and-mouse dynamic that emerges from it is palpably nail-biting.
Fast talking, hilarious and very non-nonsense, she is one of those characters you wish existed on every show. The six episode arc of Final Season 4 was produced exclusively for Netflix. Feel like no crime could surprise you these days? The dynamic between the two seemingly mismatched leads is amazing too. Fourth movie just premiered in Europe, so fingers crossed it is coming our way shortly.
Inspired by the work of Jon Douglas, David Fincher, who brought us Se7en , Gone Girl , Zodiac and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo knows a thing or two about building tension, and with the series structure he is allowed to spread his wings a little more than with motion picture format restrictions. The Night Of: John Turturro should win one of those Academy Awards for people who did something good enough to win an Oscar but not in a category that qualifies them for one.
Goliath: Billy Bob Thornton won a Globe for his role in this and it is well deserved.

A classic little guy vs. Brilliant, beautiful, and with a genuinely evil glint in her eye, her sparring with Luther walks the thin line between danger and flirtation, as something reminiscent of a friendship emerges. You have to see it to believe it. And then probably re-see it. Much like Wind River , Cardinal is not perfect, but there is plenty of atmosphere and internal turmoil to go around, especially as the complicated relationship between Cardinal and his new partner Detective Delorme, is unspooled.
The show just got renewed for two more mini season each is a six episode arc so look forward to more murder and feelings in Canada.
Available on: Hulu, Youtube, Google Play. River is about interpersonal relations and declining mental health as much as it is about the cases at hand, and Morgan has an ear for dialogue and truly stands by our unreliable narrator in a way that feels very real and therefore more gutwrenching. Only six episodes, so savor it. But the first episode of season 1 takes you by the jugular within the first five minutes and does not let go. In fact, I am still shuddering just thinking about it. The shocks subside as episodes pass, but a very solid offering throughout.
GEORGE GENTLY -In the s, an old-school detective is paired with a potentially shady new partner and has to come to terms with the fact that the lines between the police and the criminals have tentatively been blurred. The novels were terrific and it only seemed natural that a mini-series series was in order. Jason Isaacs is great as Brodie, and while the plot lines never really reach the literary heights Atkinson set us up for, it is still a noble contribution to the genre.
Darkness on the Edge of Town
Read the books though. Olivia Colman confirms her international treasure status as his partner. Second season was underrated and the third and final season is available now.
Over 33 episodes, he solves some seriously grisly crimes in Oxford, a city he once denounced after university, and for whose academic residents he harbors a healthy mix of complete disdain and occasional reverence. Since Morse is pretty hard to handle by himself, the viewer was handed the smart but affable Inspector Lewis as his sidekick, who later got a show of his own which I personally prefer to Morse and a young, intellectual, tortured partner all his own. Tony Hill a psychologist who finds himself entangled in some seriously gruesome crimes and even more gruesome people behind them.
europeschool.com.ua/profiles/ledetem/bar-con-futbolin.php There are six seasons and the first episode of season 1 perfectly sets the tone for just how unsavory these crimes are going to be. The fact that Dr. Branagh has a certain kind of water colored torture permanently imprinted on his face that makes him perfect for the recently divorced, very sad, yet emotionally disconnected detective he plays. The crimes are typically Scandinavian meaning decidedly more creepy than your standard American fare and the villains a little more desperate than usual, but the cinematography is GORGEOUS, Branagh obviously a very intelligent actor and the sum of all parts makes for a good rainy afternoon with a hot toddy viewing.
Season 2 deals with the Brothers Kray, and season 3 is less focused on obvious sensationalist cold cases and therefore, to me, the most effective. A second season is rumored, with a brand new, as-yet-unknown case. It is breezy fare, and the mysteries are not anywhere as challenging as those solved by the Sherlocks of the world but it is done well and harkens back to a simpler time where murders were solved in libraries and green fields, instead of torture chambers and such. If you like the two leads and enjoy your mysteries grittier — we recommend checking out Norton in Happy Valley and Green in the new classic Wire in the Blood.
Bonus: Miss Fisher is played by Essie Davis who is uncannily reminiscent of a young Diana Rigg, a fact that should not be lost of at least some of the men reading this I hope. It sounds hokey, but it is truly dark, wonderfully acted, and heartbreaking from a certain feminist standpoint too. Final season is now finally available. Then, of course, there is Miss Marple. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.
A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg.
