The Sinner is a murder mystery and psychological drama mini series currently on the usa network, 5 eps out of a total of 8. Starring Jessica Biel.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6048596/epi ... t_eps_sn_1

Cora, a young mother and housewife suddendly stabs a stranger to death during a family day at the lake. A quirky detective starts to unearth why she did it. It soon is apparent that something happened to her and other women that traumatized her and made her murder the young guy.

Starts out interesting, they very well build up viewers' interest in the mystery behind a, on the surface, more than obvious case.

*** This is where the spoilers start ***


However, then the tropes hit. The detective is, as said, quirky, the odd man out in the department, in conflict with superiors, violating procedure, in a troubled marriage etcetc. ... but a genius in his way. And of course there are jurisdicional squabbles with the state police, that hold him back from uncovering the truth. All seen a countless times, yaaaawn. Christian parents are bad and eff you up completely. And the rich murder and rape for sport. I just wonder why they use a small potato drug dealer to recruit the victims. I thought the rich have private military contractor thugs for that?? And they are so full of themselves, they leave their rape ski masks hanging around in the basement of the country club... in an unlocked room. :roll:

******

In a nutshell: generic network crime drivel full of tropes that masquarades as something new and interesting. A bit of Jessica Biel sideboob and a few scenes of her in a bikini are not worth sitting through painful and badly written scenes like e.g. when the detective visits a more semi than professional domina.

Verdict: save your time, go read a book.
