An alien visits Earth and casts an evil spell over a poor fisherman who finds her magic book. Since the book makes whoever finds it rich, soon the fisherman finds that several criminals are after him for it.
Superb: the most believable police drama I've ever seen.
Based on a true story, this Australian mini-series is one of the few police dramas I've ever seen which conveys how complicated, frustrating and slow the process of solving a murder can be... and yet manages to be a gripping drama. As an added bonus, it features one of the best depictions of real (sane!) scientists ever put on television - a husband-and-wife team of forensic experts who manage to retain their integrity as scientists despite the political demands of the job. It also boasts an excellent soundtrack, as well as strong performances from all of the cast. Catch it if you can.
