Coming to Acorn TV starting August 31: Hinterland. What Wallander is to Sweden and The Killing is to Denmark, Hinterland is to Wales: a dark and harrowing detective drama with compelling characters and suspenseful stories. Filmed on location in the starkly beautiful coastal town of Aberystwyth, “the perfect backdrop for a detective story,” (The Telegraph).
This “no-holds-barred gritty thriller” (Western Mail, U.K.) was an immediate hit with viewers and critics, hailed as “groundbreaking” (The Observer, U.K.) and “magnificent” (London Evening Standard, U.K.).
Richard Harrington (Bleak House) is DCI Tom Mathias, a brilliant, brooding loner newly, who possesses the perfect glowering intensity for a detective, arrived in this isolated land of mountainous terrain and close-knit villages after 10 years with London’s Metropolitan Police. Mali Harries (Foyle’s War) is smart, hard-working DI Mared Rhys, a local girl who knows Aberystwyth society inside out. Together they confront a series of mystifying murders that ultimately push Mathias to the edge.
