Dangers of a psychopath’s mind
Mr Mercedes, Fox Showcase, Monday at 8.30pm Qld, 9.30pm NSW
THIS crime drama series, now in its second season, is based on Stephen King’s best-selling Bill Hodges trilogy, with King serving as an executive producer.
A year after his thwarted attempt to perpetrate a second mass murder in the community of Bridgton, Ohio, Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) remains hospitalised in a vegetative state.
Retired detective William ‘Bill’ Hodges (Brendan Gleeson, pictured) has done his best to move on from his Hartsfield obsession, teaming up with Holly Gibney to open Finders Keepers, a private investigative agency.
But when inexplicable occurrences affect hospital staff members attending to Hartsfield, Hodges is nagged by the feeling that Brady is somehow responsible.
