The Mystery Of The Novel And Then There Were None By Agatha Christie
In a meticulously designed Art Deco drawing room, actors dressed in s formal wear are standing around with cocktails to hand, discussing murder. But is rebooting the classic English murder mystery for the era of Scandinavian noir trying to square the circle? Justice is coming, and justice will be served and it will be painful. The story involves a group of 10 people lured to an island off the coast of Devon by a mysterious certain UN Owen, each of them harbouring a guilty secret. It soon becomes clear, however, that they are going to be picked off one by one by an unknown assailant. Except perhaps a German with a gun. The whole thing is really rather beautifully rounded.
