Mindhunter (Netflix 2017, Jonathan Groff, Anna Torv)

Crime drama series Mindhunter focuses on the work of two FBI agents who are out to discover just what makes crazy crazy. Based on a book Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas, Mark Olshaker the series comes with quite a pedigree – executive producers include David Fincher and actress Charlize Theron.

The lead character played by Jonathan Groff appears to have been named, whether accidentally or on purpose we don’t know, after Australia’s two biggest car brands.
