Review Maelstrom (1985)


Member: Rank 8
A six part thriller series from the BBC, in many ways a homage to Hitchcock.
Writing by Michael J Bird, author of Aphrodite Inheritance and Who Pays The Ferryman.
Set in Norway and about a Catherine Durrell who unexpectedly is left a property in Norway by someone she has never met or even head of, the property belonged to a powerful business tycoon, and his relatives are as puzzled as Catherine as to why she has been left it.
On visiting Norway she encounters hidden tensions, dark motives and murder. It's so like Hitchcock it's obviously deliberate, nevertheless a great story and terrific ending.
Out now on DVD.
