Get ready for a trilogy of dark and gritty police thrillers! Fabel premieres May 21st, 2019 only on MHz Choice!

Premiering May 21st

Based on the best-selling thrillers by Scottish author Craig Russell, the trilogy kicks off with “Murder Is No Fairy Tale” – based on Russell’s novel Brother Grimm. The body of a girl is found near the Elbe River in Hamburg with a message for the police concealed in her hand, and homicide detective Jan Fabel is entrusted with the case. Though still psychologically fragile after a recent, catastrophic police operation, he’s been judged fit to return to duty by the police psychologist, who also happens to be his current girlfriend. For Fabel, the note in the victim’s hand is not only a mystery but also a hint that this could be the beginning of a serial killer’s spree. Sure enough, a couple is later found murdered, again with a message that Fabel now realizes is drawn from the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. But since there seems to be no link between the victims, Fabel and his team are stumped – and the killer continues enacting his deadly fantasies…
