    "Do not let him finish this case. For the sake of his own health and yours..."
    Thorgil was a world-renowned detective. A charming paragon of justice with a mansion, books written about him, and even his own thinking scarf!
    Now he is an old man. Alone in a house too big for him and a world that sees him as nothing more than a cheesy sell-out.
    But when he finds out that he is dying of unknown causes nothing else is on Thorgil’s mind except a mystery to be solved, and a legacy to be rebuilt.
    This new original drama by Frederick Upton takes the iconic murder mystery genre and flips it completely on its head – exploring the dynamics of legacies, role models and swollen egotism- and poses the question of ‘what do we do when we see our old heroes grow too grey and senile for their own good?’
