Starring award winning actress Gillian Anderson (The X Files), and Jamie Dornan (50 Shades of Grey), this five-part psychological thriller forensically examines the lives of two hunters; one a ruthless serial killer and the other a high-powered detective superintendent brought in to catch him. Set in Northern Ireland, the series follows Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson from the London Metropolitan Police who arrives in Belfast to help with the investigation of a series of as yet unconnected murders. Convinced these crimes are all linked to the same person, under Gibson’s lead the hostile local detectives and pathologist explore the case from every angle, uncovering an intricate web of lives entangled by the murders.
