A first-look picture has been released of Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård (above) in new BBC One six-part drama, River.
Written by Abi Morgan, River focuses on John River (Skarsgård), a brilliant police officer whose genius and fault-line is the fragility of his mind – a man haunted by the murder victims whose cases he must lay to rest.
Spooks and Last Tango in Halifax star Nicola Walker stars as DS Jackie ‘Stevie’ Stevenson, a colleague and close friend of River.
River will air Tuesday, 13th October at 9pm on BBC One.
