| If you are fan of crime fiction - this is a must.
For me, city of Edinburgh has always had a macabre reputation: it's history of medical experimentation, it's architecture, it's haunted underground tunnels, and it's famous literary people. Ever since I read Edgar Allen Poe's "How to Write a Blackwood Article" and "The Scythe of Time", I've always been fascinated about this place myself. And this TV drama really lit up my imagination.

At first, the hero Jim Buchan (Alec Newman) himself seems like the archetype grumpy cynical Scottish police inspector. He and his partner Sinead Burns (Nina Sosyana) are investigating a 100-year-old corpse discovered in a sealed-off section of the City's underground; the circumstances are suspicious and next to the body the letters A C I D are etched on to the rock.

But Buchan's haunted character begins to reveal some bizarre twists of it's own as the mystery unfolds. The whole detective story genre is turned over on it's head and the crescendo towards the conclusion is a well crafted piece of a surreal drama in itself.

If you're a fan of crime thrillers - on screen and in literature - then you will be in for a special treat; and a macabre fascination for the City of Edinburgh will probably grow in you as well.
