Jay Swan takes on new case
Mystery Road, ABC, Sunday at 8.30pm
WHEN Indigenous detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen, pictured) arrives in the remote town of Patterson to investigate a mysterious disappearance from an outback cattle station, he thinks it will be an easy three-day job.
But it soon becomes clear this is not a simple case.
Not only does the missing local Indigenous teenager Marley (Aaron McGrath) know the country, but he would have stayed with his vehicle and not wandered off.
It also appears there may have been force. But by who? And why?
Always a loner, Jay now has to work with smart, tough local cop Emma James (Judy Davis, also pictured).
Born to a wealthy pastoral family and proud of her pioneering history, Emma’s life is embedded in the town.
