The Saturday Play - Rebus – Black and Blue, part 1 of 2
By Ian Rankin, dramatised by Chris Dolan
Rebus investigates the violent death of a North Sea oil worker in Edinburgh and uncovers possible motives ranging from gangland infighting over drugs to eco protests against oil exploration. But as Rebus’s inquiries take him from Edinburgh to Glasgow and then to Aberdeen he finds his investigation overlapping with a major hunt for a serial killer who has struck in all three cities.
From The Radio Times
Prepare to take a mental bruising as this drama opens with a graphic description of how one man met a miserable, messy end. But this is Ian Rankin's DI Rebus: his cases are to random acts of violence what Morse's were to purposeful intellectual unravelment. It's a superbly challenging plot, involving serial killers, eco-warriors, gangland crime and bent coppers. There's not a single wasted word, with subtle clues hidden everywhere. But you'll have to wait until next week for the thrilling finale, when all the layers of deception come together.
