The Sinner season 4: What’s the show all about?

The Sinner stars Bill Pullman as troubled detective Harry Ambrose.

Throughout the first three series, Harry investigated shocking crimes where the perpetrator seemed cut and dried.

But as he delved into each case, all is never as it seems – to say this anthology series feature ambiguous characters is an understatement!

In series one, wife Cora Tannetti (Jessica Biel) seemed to have everything – a good job, a loving husband, a nice home… until she brutally stabbed a man on a crowded beach.

Next, in series two, Harry goes back to his homework to investigate the case of a young boy who seemingly poisoned his parents.

Then, in the last series, Harry looks into a fatal car crash where the driver was killed. In the passenger seat was a college professor – Jamie Burns – and the driver’s old university friend.

But what really happened in all of these cases? Finding the truth almost breaks Harry.

The Sinner season 4: What happens in season 4 of The Sinner?

In this new – and final – eight-part series, Harry is now retired and travels to Hanover Island in the state of Maine to recover from his near-fatal run-in with Jamie Burns in series three.

However, he just can’t leave the job behind.

A tragedy occurs involving Percy, the daughter of the local, prominent Muldoon family – Harry thinks he saw a shadowy figure push her off a cliff edge one night.

And, since he’s in the area, he agrees to help out.

But as the case develops, poor old Harry is propelled into a world of growing paranoia and a case that threatens to tear the whole island – and his own life – apart.

Is Percy really dead?
