From the prolific storyteller comes another adaptation of one of her books. However, this time it involves no wands and spells. Instead, Strike: The Cuckoo's Calling, is the first of her detective novels to make it to the big screen.

Incase you haven't read the book (without giving away too many spoilers), Cormoran Strike is a private investigator who, along with his assistant Robin Ellacot, solves crime in London. Think Sherlock Holmes but with less mystical tricks and more hard, factual crime.

 

 

The Guardian spoke to the TV show's executive producer, Ruth Kenley-Letts who said: "It makes a nice change to have a show where the crimes aren't solved in a clever-dick way but because they put the effort in."
