Rebus: The Ken Stott Collection
Ken Stott (The Hobbit trilogy, Charlie Wilson's War) was an instant hit (The Guardian, UK) as DI John Rebus in these adaptations of Ian Rankin's award-winning crime novels. Set in gritty, modern-day Edinburgh, these 10 engrossing mysteries show the sardonic hero as he hounds down murderers, haunted by his own shortcomings and the human tragedy he faces daily. His eager and ambitious young partner, DS Siobhan Clarke (Claire Price, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), resents her gruff mentor's unorthodox methods but gradually comes to respect his abilities. And though Rebus's disdain for police procedure and politics earns him the ire of his superiors, no one can argue with his results. Guest stars in this collection include Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones), Julie Graham (The Bletchley Circle), Anna Chancellor (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), and Sam Heughan (Outlander).
