Strike begins filming season 5 for BBC One

Cormoran Strike is back.

Robert Galbraith’s private detective will return for a fifth series – subtitled Troubled Blood – and the news is that it has begun production.

Strike is visiting his family in Cornwall when he’s approached by a woman asking for help finding her mother, Margot Bamborough, who went missing under mysterious circumstances in 1974.

Strike’s never tackled a cold case, before let alone one 40 years old, but despite the slim chance of success he’s intrigued and takes it on, adding to the long list of cases that he and his partner in the agency Robin Ellacott are currently working on. And Robin herself is also juggling a messy divorce and unwanted male attention, as well as battling her own feelings about Strike.

As Strike and Robin investigate Margot’s disappearance, they come up against a fiendishly complex case with leads that include tarot cards, a psychopathic serial killer and witnesses who cannot all be trusted. And they learn even cases 40 years old can prove to be deadly.

Joining Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger are Linda Bassett, Kierston Wareing, Abigail Lawrie, Anna Calder-Marshall, Fionnula Flanagan, Cherie Lunghi, Jack Greenlees, Daniel Peacock, Ruth Sheen, Syrus Lowe, Carol MacReady, Sophie Ward, Robin Askwith, Genevieve Hulme-Beaman, Christina Cole, Ian Radford, Philip Cornwell and Kenneth Cranham.

  2. Good luck t them with this one – I found the book unpleasant.


  3. I haven’t read the books in this series because I generally stick to Nordic books but I do enjoy this series on TV. I think the acting is great in it , enjoy the characters and enjoy the darkness that is in it.
