About this show

When Alex Irving, a charismatic and contradictory Indigenous woman, is thrust into the national limelight after a horrific event, Australia's embattled Prime Minister Rachel Anderson, sees a publicity goldmine for her party. In a bold power play, she handpicks Alex for the Senate. But Alex wants to be more than just a political stunt: she wants to make a difference. Intuitive and instinctive, Annika has a weakness for using literary and historical references to help solve her crimes, an enthusiasm that her team definitely doesn't share, but which is often the thing that unlocks the case. The team's cases take them from the depths of Glasgow's Clyde River to the Isle of Bute and picturesque Loch Katrine as they solve a new crime each episode, juxtaposing Scotland's stunning landscapes and urban beauty against the horrific realities of the murders her team must solve.

Unnervingly accurate portrayal of the inner workings of Federal Parliament, the Australian Public Service and the Canberra bubble. Incredibly well written and executed Australian Drama. Gripping and intense from the opening scene of the first episode, yet a very plausible and believable story line. Was completely immersed right up to the very end of the season finale!
