If you’re looking for an addictive and murky crime series with questionable characters, look no further than The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair.
Lead character, Harry Quebert (Patrick Dempsey), is a renowned literary professor and famous author. New kid on the block and Quebert’s protégé, Marcus Goldman, has writer’s block and spends his days dodging agents requesting a follow-up to his first mega hit.
Things quickly take a turn for the worst when Quebert is arrested for the murder of fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan, who disappeared in the 70s. Marcus, along with Sgt. Perry Gahalowood, delve deep into the lives of Maine’s townsfolk to discover what really happened in the summer of 1975.
Season 1, Episode 1 leaves watchers asking: “Did Quebert do it?”
As the show continues, the relationship between Quebert and Kellergan begins to unfold and may leave you feeling rather uncomfortable to say the least. The relationship is explored in a way we don’t usually see on screen. When we witness their first interaction, the mutual attraction is obvious. Is it wrong? Yes, but the producers handle it well and it is not used merely as a shock tactic.
Absolutely engrossing culminating in an unpredicted ending.
The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair contains multiple twists and never fails to keep you guessing. The show is a genuine whodunnit. However, in my opinion, the ending fell a little short, but the suspense felt throughout the series is definitely worth the watch!
Stream season 1 of The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair now. Available exclusively on Showmax.
