J. K. Rowling Crime Novels - Television Adaptations

Lovers of the Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J. K. Rowling) mysteries are in for a treat.  BBC will be adapting the three novels which will also be aired on HBO. 

Image result for cormoran strike“The project, Cormoran Strike, will air as three separate event series, each based on a Galbraith book: The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm, and Career of Evil.  Cormoran Strike will star Tom Burke as a war veteran turned P.I. who can crack cases that have eluded the police proper” (http://www.vulture.com/2016/10/jk-rowlings-crime-books-to-be-limited-series.html?mid=twitter_vulture).  

The Cuckoo's Calling will thave hree one-hour episodes. The Silkworm and Career of Evil will each be divided into two one-hour episodes. Filming is set to begin this fall.

I’ve really enjoyed the three novels.  You can see my reviews of them:

Apparently the fourth book in the series will be released next year.
