For the first time ever, the great Irvine Welsh—the colossus of Scottish—fiction turns his attention to a television drama series with a story adapted from his best-selling novel. As with his masterpiece Trainspotting, the streets of Edinburgh are the setting for Irvine Welsh’s Crime—the story of a tormented detective in a city on the edge of the abyss.

International star Dougray Scott leads a stellar cast as Detective Inspector Ray Lennox, a man whose clear sight is as much a blessing as it is a curse.

A girl goes missing. A town is in fear. A police department fights with itself. A hero is lost, tortured by his own demons. And all the while—watching, waiting—a brutal killer is poised to strike.

Prepare to enter this dangerous world and the troubled mind of Ray Lennox—a man engaged in his own disturbing battle, all while undertaking serious crime investigations in the glaring light of the public arena.

Joining Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible 2My Week with Marilyn, Batwoman) is Joanna Vanderham (WarriorDC’s Legends of Tomorrow) as DS Amanda Drummond, Angela Griffin (HarlotsWhite Lines) as Trudi Lowe, Ken Stott (The DigFortitude) as Chief Superintendent Bob Toal, and Jamie Sives (GuiltToo Close) as Detective Inspector Dougie Gillman.
