The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair

The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair

Series 1 - Episode 2



It makes no sense. Why would author Harry Quebert bury the body of missing teenager Nola in the grounds of his home alongside the manuscript of his book? He might as well have put up a billboard or a neon sign saying “I murdered her here”.

But despite his protestations of innocence, he is strangely secretive: there’s the box of memorabilia he keeps locked away (but wants burnt) and that moment of anger when his protégé Marcus looked through his stuff. Through flashbacks to the mid-1970s we learn more about Harry’s relationship with the young waitress, while Marcus gets a warning – which he ignores, of course.


Marcus begins his investigation into Harry's involvement in the Nola Kellergan murder, while receiving threats from an unknown source. Patrick Dempsey and Ben Schnetzer star.
