Jane Halifax returns to profile a killer no-one can see
This long-awaited return of one of Australia’s most popular drama franchises was a massive ratings hit when it launched on Nine Network and also garnered two nominations (Best Drama and Best Actress) at the prestigious AACTAs. In this gripping new series, forensic psychiatrist Jane Halifax (Rebecca Gibney, Wanted, Packed to the Rafters) returns to work on a difficult case with Commander Tom Saracen (Antony La Paglia, Riviera, The Code, Without a Trace).
It’s been twenty years since Jane worked in the field, but a sniper is terrorizing the city and Commander Tom Saracen urgently needs her assistance. Jane comes to realise that the killer’s invisibility to the surveillance cameras and his sophisticated hacking skills hold the clue to what he wants.
Though Jane dismisses a threatening letter as the work of a crank, other things are not so easy to ignore. And when her partner, Ben (Craig Hall) is brutally murdered, Jane is forced to confront the terrifying possibility: that the killer could be after her.
An eight-part series set in a world where facial recognition and data mining are eroding our personal freedoms every day, Halifax: Retribution brings Jane Halifax back to a world she has never been able to leave: sleuthing her way to the truth behind the cleverest criminal minds.
