Rebus: Set 2
Ken Stott (Shallow Grave, The Vice, Messiah) returns as rumpled, hard drinking detective Inspector John Rebus, hero of Ian Rankin's perennially bestselling novels. Rebus bulldogs violent criminals in modern day Edinburgh, from young toughs and drug dealers to corrupt captains of industry and commerce. his earnest, ambitious partner, Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke (Claire Price, Poirot: The Hollow, The Whistle-Blower) learns plenty of lessons from her mentor - not all of them in the best interest of her career. Although Rebus's disdain for procedure and politics earns him the ire of his superiors, no one can argue with his results.
With his black humor, blacker moods, and relentless pursuit of the truth, Rebus inherits the mantle of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler's hardboiled detectives - with a distinctly contemporary, Scottish twist.
