  • Dredging up a van that’s been missing for more than 20 years stirs painful memories for Irish police detective Tom Brannick (James Nesbitt, Murphy’s Law, Waking Ned Devine, The Hobbit films). One of the bodies in the van is all that remains of his wife, who disappeared during the Troubles of 1998. The kidnappings had been hushed up for the sake of peace negotiations. But when old police files and the van’s current owner suddenly disappear, Tom goes after “Goliath”—the original, mysterious suspect. Deliciously dark humor cuts through the suspense of this “enjoyably dense and astute thriller” (The Guardian) from The BBC. 4 episodes and 4 hours on 2 Discs SDH
