"Thorne" (TV miniseries) on Encore centers on the complex and unpredictable Detective Inspector Tom Thorne (David Morrissey) and delves into a pair of spine-tingling, unspeakable crimes.

This adaptation of two favorites in Mark Billingham's best-selling series of novels, "Sleepyhead" and "Scaredy Cat," leads Thorne on an intense chase through chilling crime scenes, deliberately manipulated clues and, ultimately, the darkest depths of London.

In "Thorne: Sleepyhead," the detective is dragged back into the nightmares of his past when young girls begin falling victim to sadistically induced strokes. Thorne knows there are more deaths to come, as the skillful predator enjoys toying with Thorne just as much as pursuing his sick fantasy.

When two female victims turn out to be killed in the exact same way in "Thorne: Scaredy Cat," Thorne finds himself on the hunt for not one, but two serial killers. Are they working together, yet killing separately? The answer will unravel a case that reaches back ten dark years.

Prepare to be thrilled and chilled in equal measure as Encore brings you a new take on crime drama.
