It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

Robert Wilson News: Falcón quartet on TV and next novel…

Sky Atlantic HD has announced the start of production for the first two-part FALCÓN story, based on Robert Wilson’s bestselling Javier Falcón novels, which started filming in Seville last week.

The role of Javier Falcón, a Chief Inspector in the Seville police, will be played by Marton Csokas, best known as Elven Lord Celeborn in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy as well as appearing alongside Helen Mirren in The Debt … Joining Csokas in FALCÓN: The Blind Man Of Seville are Charlie Creed-Miles (The Fifth Element, Harry Brown) as Ramirez, Falcón’s deputy in the Seville Police and Hayley Atwell (Captain America, Any Human Heart) as Consuelo Jimenez, the widow of a murder victim who may also be the number one suspect.  Emilia Fox (Silent Witness, The Pianist) will play Ines, the estranged wife of Falcón, whilst Kerry Fox (Cloudstreet, Shallow Grave) is his sister, Manuela.  

Veteran actor Bernard Hill (Titanic, The Lord of The Rings) takes the role of Ramon Salgado, wealthy art dealer and friend of Falcón’s father, the renowned, but now deceased artist Francisco Falcón.  Santiago Cabrerra (Merlin, Heroes) will play Judge Esteban Calderon.  Further details from Sky here.  Find out more about the novels at the author’s site here.

And what of the divine Mr Wilson’s novels?  2012 sees a move to Orion in the UK and his next novel’s details follow in the picture (taken from his agent’s catalogue).

  1. This sounds really good! Not read any of the novels but know you’re a fan Rhian and you have good taste. Could be a while before on TV though.

      Sky’s site says will be on screen in 2012. I, of course, will have to wait for a reasonably priced DVD or crash on someone’s sofa. The Falcon quartet is pure quality crime fiction and the novels set in Portugal include a CWA dagger winner. I am so looking forward to his new one.
