Meet television’s next great detective, Cormoran Strike (Tom Burke), a war veteran turned private detective who operates out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street. He is wounded both physically and psychologically but his unique insight and his background as an SIB investigator prove crucial in solving complex cases, which the police seem unable to solve. Robin Ellacott (Holliday Grainger) is Strike’s new office temp who is in charge of managing his chaotic life. She soon becomes involved with his caseload and begins to see her true potential. Together they crack some of London’s most intriguing cases.
