|Elisabeth Moss as Robin|
This haunting story focuses on the remote mountains of New Zealand, where 12-year-old Tui is seen standing in a freezing lake. It is discovered that she is pregnant but won't reveal who the father is.
For Elisabeth Moss's detective, Robin Griffin, the case has echoes of her own past. What begins as a statutory rape investigation then turns into possible kidnapping or murder when Tui vanishes.
Word is that this multi-stranded six-part drama is heavily atmospheric, bringing to mind past classics such as Twin Peaks or The Killing in its distinctive feel.
At present, Top of the Lake is pencilled in for broadcast this summer.
