In a community nourished and sustained by myth and bordered by untamed nature, the search for a serial killer becomes a matter of life and death for local detective Annie Redford (Laura Fraser) who is trying to cope with her first murder case. When the body of local man Niall Swift (Jordan McCurrach) is found at the foot of Carn Mohr Mountain, the town’s normality is shattered and the nightmare begins.
Chillingly, the beautiful scenery, undulating Highlands and vast expansive loch becomes a character in its own right adding a haunting depth to the community’s plight. The initial investigation, headed by DCI Lauren Quigley (Siobhan Finneran), produces more questions than answers.
In the second episode, following the discovery of a human heart on the shores of the loch, forensic psychologist Blake Albrighton (Don Gilet) is brought into the team. Chief Inspector Frank Smilie (John Sessions) is sceptical about his theories but, if Albrighton is right, a serial killer is targeting this community.
Also featured are Gray O’Brien, Alastair Mackenzie and William Ash.
