Storyline

The head of the FBI Behavioral Science unit, Jack Crawford, calls on profiler Will Graham to assist them catch a serial killer. The killer has now kidnapped eight women, all similar in appearance and always on a Friday. His most recent victim is Elise Nichols. Graham has been teaching at the FBI academy and isn't too keen on going out into the field. He is particularly empathetic and has a tendency to get far too involved in these types of cases. Crawford arranges for a well-known psychiatrist, Hannibal Lecter, to work with him and ease the stress. It seems Lecter has his own plans for Will. Written by garykmcd

Awesome Start
3 September 2017 | by jetkotSee all my reviews

An excellent and stylish start to the series. I love the character Will Graham and his style of Investigation. He is portrayed beautifully by Hugh Dancy. I never thought that someone could match Anthony Hopkins portrayal of Hannibal Lecter but Mads Mikkelsen does a fantastic job. The show is very fast paced and I really enjoy such shows that do not waste time in slow build up. It has to move fast and keep me entertained. The first episode was brilliant.
