First of a four-part dramatisation of Peter May's bestselling crime novel set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Starring Cal MacAninch (HOLBY BLUE, MR SELFRIDGE) and Derek 'Pluto' Murray (MACHAIR and Radio nan Gaidheal), the dramas will go out daily this week.

Detective Inspector Fin MacLeod has been dispatched to the Isle of Lewis to investigate a brutal murder that bears similarities to a case he's worked on in Edinburgh. Born and raised on the island, it's the first time he's set foot there in eighteen years and the investigation represents an uncomfortable journey into his past.

Inquiries are being hampered by the annual guga hunt, in which twelve Island men spend a fortnight on the rocky outcrop of An Sgeir harvesting 2,000 baby gannets. It's a tradition that dates back centuries and the right to carry it out is fiercely defended. For Fin MacLeod, the hunt stirs long-buried memories of a horrific tragedy which, two decades on, still haunts him.

An atmospheric thriller that explores dark secrets and the difficulties of escaping the past.

Detective Inspector Fin MacLeod has returned to the Isle of Lewis, where he was born and raised, for the first time in nearly twenty years. He's been drafted in to investigate a brutal murder with similarities to a case he's worked on in Edinburgh.

Progress is slow: the dead man, Angel MacRitchie, had a reputation as a violent bully; and locals don't want the investigation to halt the annual trip to An Sgeir to hunt for gannets - a tradition that dates back centuries. For Fin, the hunt stirs long-buried memories of a terrible tragedy which still haunts him two decades on.
