A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder is the smart, gripping crime thriller we can’t wait to get stuck into

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder is the upcoming BBC Three thriller based on the bestselling novel of the same name – here’s everything you need to know about it. 

There’s something about a good murder mystery that just never grows old. It’s the classic kind of sofa-side sleuthing we love to engage in, and shows like Only Murders In The Building and The White Lotus just add to our love of the genre.

Now, the BBC has announced that it will be bringing us a murder mystery show that already sounds like a hit – and it’s based on the page-turning novel of the same name by Holly Jackson. A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder will be a familiar title to any crime thriller fan (it’s been hailed as a hit with fans of Serial and Gone Girl) so we can’t wait to see how the events of the brilliant book will unfold on the small screen.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new series.

What is the plot of A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder?

The new series has been described as a “compulsive teen crime thriller” but if previous shows like Red Rose and even Euphoria have taught us anything, it’s that a show with teenage leads doesn’t mean it’s any less terrifying.

In fact, this show seems a lot more sinister. In the six-part series, we’re faced with a murder that may initially seem like an open-and-shut case, but really, it’s anything but.

According to the synopsis: “Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. Case closed. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it. But Pippa Fitz-Amobi – our insatiably smart, slightly square heroine – isn’t so sure and she’s determined to prove it.

“But if Sal Singh isn’t a murderer and the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pippa from the truth?”
