Darker than dark thrilling, chilling, Nordic-noiresque Canadian crime drama Cardinal arrives on UK DVD on 2 October 2017 courtesy of eOne and we have two DVDs up for grabs.
The most watched new Canadian series for 2017, this gripping, disturbing thriller is adapted from award-winning book Forty Words Of Sorrow, the first in the series of John Cardinal novels by Giles Blunt and recently aired on BBC 4.
Set against the stunning icy backdrop of Northern Ontario, the body of a missing 13-year-old is discovered and troubled detective John Cardinal (Billy Campbell – The Killing) is brought back into the homicide team, after a hunch he wouldn’t let go of and one he almost lost his job over, is proven horribly correct.
Now, as he searches for the murderer in an all-consuming race to stay one step ahead of a brutal serial killer, he must also face his own personal demons, as his family life threatens to unravel, while keeping a watchful eye on his new partner, detective Lise Delorme (Karine Vanesse – Revenge), who he believes may have a secret agenda.
Can Cardinal catch the savage killer in this twisted game of cat and mouse or will it be his downfall in this riveting, stomach churning series?
