Mark Lawson's in-depth interview with Jones and Larson on Radio 4’s Front Row is currently available on BBC iPlayer.
The man who invented the slow, unsettling style of hit Nordic television thrillers, such as WALLANDER, THE KILLING and THE BRIDGE, is bringing his unflinching brand of screen magic to the city of Nottingham” The Guardian
“MURDER is a bold and taut drama [...] Larsen says the script, by Robert Jones (THE COPS, PARTY ANIMALS), had some of the best writing he had ever come across” Broadcast
“The style of MURDER is far more original than its rather blunt title [...] Utterly compelling” The Independent
"Robert Jones has found a really fresh and innovative way of telling crime stories and in doing so has created a unique format” BBC Exec Producer, Matthew Read
“I can say without exaggeration that it was the best script I have seen since THE KILLING. I was attracted to the fact that it’s written in such a way that the actors talk direct to camera. It feels original and intimate. You’re drawn into their world – you see it through their eyes” Birger Larsen
