The Black Book
Set 2, The Black BookDVD - 2006
"Ken Stott returns as rumpled, hard-drinking Detective Inspector John Rebus, hero of Ian Rankin's perennially bestselling novels. Rebus bulldogs violent criminals in modern-day Edinburgh, from young toughs and drug dealers to corrupt captains of industry and commerce. His earnest, ambitious partner, Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke (Claire Price), learns plenty of lessons from her mentor -- not all of them in the best interest of her career. Although Rebus's disdain for procedure and politics earns him the ire of his superiors, no one can argue with his results. With his black humor, blacker moods, and relentless pursuit of the truth, Rebus inherits the mantle of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler's hard-boiled detectives -- with a distinctly contemporary, Scottish twist."--Container.
