The Oxford Murders

2008


Alex de la Iglesia
Director

A mathematics professor and and an aspirant student become embroiled with a serial killer who leaves mathematical clues.

Murder mystery packed with the herrings of the red variety. I rather liked the solution to the mystery and John Hurt is always good value, but some of the other trappings fall flat, notably the romantic subplot. Morse, one suspects, would have solved the thing rather more quickly.
