Default Mr. Mercedes

Anyone else watching? Just started season 3. I am an avid reader of Crime Murder Mystery Suspense fiction . This series is based on a Steven King book Bill Hodges series- Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch.)

Very novel story line with really very little supernatural stuff that keeps me away from King's books. The first 2 seasons were riveting. Great characters and excellent acting. It's on Peacock Premium - free on Xfinity cable. Also available on other streaming services. "Retired detective Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved case of "Mr. Mercedes", who claimed sixteen lives when he drove a stolen Mercedes through a line of job-seekers at a local job fair. Meanwhile, brilliant young psychopath Brady Hartsfield emerges to focus his attention on Hodges." Justine Lube plays a perfect somewhat OCDC Holly. Mary Louise Parker is Bill's love interest in season one, and Bill is played by Brendin Gleeson from The Guard - anoither sleeper must see.

Enjoy - what are you watching on Amazon and Netflix?

Holly Gibney rolls over into the Stephen King book The Outsider and the novella If It Bleeds. Is also one of the main characters of the The Outsider mini-series on HBO.

It is on Peacock Premium which comes free with Comcast, but I think you have to pay to watch it on computer ? So far the show has a small hold-over plot from the second season (Lou Linklatter the red head nerd is awaiting trial for murder but still scared and haunted by some form of Brady Hartfield) but seems to becoming more about a new unconnected to murder. So far so good.
