Storyline

DI Rebus investigates the murder of Dr. Joseph Devlin, a retired obstetrician. The man is found in his home, tied to a chair with his wrists slit. On his lap is a miniature coffin, similar to those found in a local museum, with the smiling effigy of a child inside. Devlin had dined the previous evening with Sir James Hogarth, his closest friend. Rebus and DS Siobhan Clarke get on the trail of David Costello when Phillipa Balfour, a university student working at a local museum, tells them she has once again started to receive threatening e-mails from Costello, who has stalked her in the past. When Sir James' ex-wife is found murdered in exactly the same way as Devlin, it becomes apparent that Costello is seeking some type of revenge. Rebus suspects Sir James has had an incestuous relationship with his daughter but is having difficulty finding the evidence. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Ken Stott is a passionate supporter of Hearts football team. In this episode it is revealed that Rebus is a supporter of Hibernians, the other team in Edinburgh. Hearts and Hibernians supporters are fierce rivals. Ken Stott has said that pretending to be overjoyed when he sneaked into Hibernians' ground late at night with his girlfriend was the hardest thing had ever been asked to so as an actor. Ian Rankin, creator of Rebus, commented: "But he also has played Adolf Hitler. So he finds it easier to get inside the mind of Hitler than to get inside the mind of a Hibernian football fan."

Why do this to my favourite books???
8 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If the makers of the Rebus films are reading this, please take this piece of simple advice.

Instead of trying to take one of the huge Rebus novels and cram it into one and a half hours, use one one of the earlier books which are quite straightforward tales or even take one of the short stories that Rankin has done and film or expand that.

How about writing a new story altogether for t.v? Because between the earlier John Hannah Rebus and now the Ken Stott version (which is better) you are in danger of destroying what could be the new "Morse" or "Taggart" which is a shame.

Oh and Rebus doesn't support Hibs, sort it out.
