Starring the naturally compatible duo of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, HBO’s True Detective is a fascinating journey through two troubled cops’ investigations into the bizarre methodology and sadistic rituals of a Louisiana serial murderer.
Spanning 17 years, season one jumps across numerous timelines, each brilliantly chilling, and all linking intelligently with vigilant attention to detail.
Definitively neo-noir, True Detective’s key strengths are in its suspenseful, eery writing style and incredibly passionate performances.
The plot is wide open for season two, and will be set in California. A must-see for fans of mysterious crime shows with a twist (or several).
