Above Suspicion

TV-Movie | GB 2008 | 75'/47' | OV

In PRIME SUSPECT, Lynda La Plante created a crime film classic 18 years ago for the British network ITV that spawned a total of six sequels. “Above Suspicion” follows in the footsteps of this success: it also revolves around a female police investigator who takes on her first major case, and must use her intelligence to win the respect of the male-dominated murder squad. Anna Travis is part of a team on the trail of a serial killer who slays women, seemingly picked out at random, in atrocious ways. In spite of her fragile appearance, Anna gradually emerges as a tough investigator of a convoluted case.
