Detective Inspector Rebus (John Hannah) attempts to solve four mysteries in this collection of episodes from the BBC America show. Rebus always struggles to overcome his own personal failings as he patrols the streets of Edinburgh in search of the criminal element, with Hannah giving a superlative performance as the beleaguered detective.
Description by KOCH Entertainment Distribution:
Rebus is adapted from the novels of award-winning writer Ian Rankin - the UK's number one best-selling crime writer. At the center of each story is Detective Inspector Rebus, an enigma, fighting his own weaknesses, while dealing with the sad consequences of human frailty. He's seen it all before, but his cynicism is redeemed by an unexpected humanity that reveals he is more disillusioned with himself than others. As he scours the streets looking for answers, Rebus is actually seeking the truth about himself. Episodes: The story of a copycat killer from 15 years ago comes back to haunt Rebus in "Black and Blue". He finds himself taken off the case when an official investigation is opened into the death of a convicted murderer, who Rebus helped put behind bars, 15 years ago. True to his nature, Rebus refuses to let the matter lie. He soon finds himself in pursuit of two killers, past and present. "The Hanging Garden" follows Rebus as he pieces together the trail of a war criminal who appears to have gone into hiding in a respectable part of town. After rescuing a young Chechen girl from a local gangster he is drawn into a vicious running battle between rival gangs. But when his daughter Sammy is deliberately run down in the street, it soon becomes plain he will stop at nothing to find the man responsible. Rebus and his colleague catch sight of a known convicted pedophile taking photographs at the zoo in "Dead Souls". It transpires he has been released early from prison, is under police protection and is the key witness in the trial of two suspected abusers. The next day, Rebus' colleague is found dead in the center of Edinburgh in what appears to be suicide. Devastated, Rebus sets out to discover what exactly happened. And in "Mortal Causes", the case of an underworld execution unfolds as Rebus makes a link with racist attacks that raises the chilling specter of terrorism on the streets of Edinburgh.
