Brace your­selves: sea­son two of The Sin­ner is com­ing


Heat (UK) - - Employee Of The Week -

Sea­son one of The Sin­ner was a big word-of-mouth phe­nom­e­non for Net­flix in the UK (who ac­quired it from the USA net­work), with its eye-catch­ing premise of a bru­tal mur­der com­mit­ted in broad day­light in front of myr­iad wit­nesses by a woman (Jes­sica Biel) who didn’t even seem to know the vic­tim, and then had no me­mory of the crime. Biel also exec-pro­duced the se­ries. And now it’s back for an­other eight episodes, although Jes­sica her­self does not ap­pear. In­stead, the char­ac­ter of de­tec­tive Harry Am­brose (Bill Pull­man) takes cen­tre stage, as he re­turns to his home­town, where he’s asked to help in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of an­other deeply in­trigu­ing mys­tery: the killing of a mar­ried cou­ple by their 13-year-old son. As with the first sea­son, there’s a re­li­gious theme un­der­pin­ning the story, which comes to the fore when it turns out the vic­tims and the boy who con­fessed to poi­son­ing them were part of a cult-like com­mu­nity. Am­brose’s de­tec­tive col­league Heather No­vack (Na­talie Paul) also has a con­nec­tion to the “utopian” com­mune, while the story takes a dra­matic turn at the end of the open­ing episode when the magnificent ac­tress Car­rie Coon, of

Gone Girl and The Left­overs fame, shows up claim­ing she should take charge of the mys­te­ri­ous lit­tle boy who seems to be a psy­cho killer. Once you start, you will not be able to stop watch­ing what is ev­ery bit as grip­ping a crime thriller as the tri­umphant first sea­son. HHHHH Boyd Hil­ton
