Kidman will play an Australian mother, Julia, who’s story will intersect Detective Robin Griffin (Moss).
Top of the Lake: China Girl (to give the second series its full name) begins four years on from the explosive ending of series one. Five years after the shocking events that rocked her hometown in New Zealand, Robin, recently returned to Sydney, is trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realises “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin’s search to discover “China Girl’s” identity takes her into the city’s criminal underbelly and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
Look out for it on BBC2 next year.
