Killian Scott and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor have both been cast in Dublin murders, a new psychological crime thriller for BBC One, Starz and RTÉ with support from Northern Ireland Screen.

The show is an adaptation of Tana French’s internationally bestselling Dublin Murder Squad novels and each book is led by a different detective from the same team and their signature is an intense emotional connection between cop and crime.

Dublin Murders

This series, set during the height of the Celtic Tiger financial boom of the millennium, will focus on two murder investigations led by ambitious and charismatic Detectives Rob Reilly and Cassie Maddox. The victims – a young talented ballerina who is found dead on an ancient stone altar; and a vivacious free-spirited woman, who is found stabbed in a roofless famine cottage – are seemingly unrelated, but as we will discover, are actually knitted together by powerful shared themes – the macabre ‘red in tooth and claw’ elements of both stories, and their heart-thumping psychological thriller qualities.
