Tom Vaughan Lawlor praises Dublin Murders' 'nuanced and complex storylines'

The eagerly anticipated true crime series is coming very soon indeed.

Tom Vaughan Lawlor has praised Dublin Murders for its "nuanced and complex storylines" and yeah, that has gotten us fairly excited for the series to drop.


The actor, who plays Frank in the upcoming programme, said that he jumped at the chance to be involved in the show.

He also said that he had read the fifth book in the series that Dublin Murders is based on, and that he found it a "total page turner."

"Especially playing a character like Frank: someone who operates in the grey area and who is hard to pinpoint, in an exciting way," he told BBC.

"He's in The Secret Place as a character as well as the novel Faithful Place, in which he is the lead character, so potentially he would go into further series."


The series is based on Tana French's first two books, In The Woods and The Likeness. 

It will focus on two detectives investigating a series of crimes that they believe could be linked to an old case.

Dublin Murders stars Sarah Greene and Killian Scott as the lead detectives, as well as Vaughan Lawlor as Frank, who works in the undercover section of the Dublin Murder Team.


The actor said that his character is "... a renegade, and I suppose he is really an anarchic: he is irreverent and anti-establishment, and his moral code is ambiguous."

Can't wait, tbh.

Dublin Murders will debut on BBC One on October 14, with the second episode airing on October 15. New episodes will air every Monday and Tuesday for four weeks after.

The Irish premiere won't be too far behind either, because Dublin Murders will begin with a double bill on RTÉ One on Wednesday October 16 at 9.35pm.


Exciting times ahead, lads.

Get ready.
