This new year, she'll be making news again, although you might not notice it. Since finishing the Harry Potter novels, Rowling has written three crime novels under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith. This summer, the three Galbraith novels, The Cuckoo's Calling, The Silkworm and The Career of Evil are each being adapted into a 60 minute episode.
The series follows an overweight private detective, Cormoran Strike. He is a spiky and unlikeable character operating out of a tiny office in London's Denmark Street and on the verge of bankruptcy. Despite being down on his luck and wounded both physically and psychologically, he proves crucial in solving three complex cases that have eluded the police.
Cormoran will be played by Tom Burke, who recently starred in BBC’s epic War And Peace as Fedor Dolokhov and in The Musketeers as Athos. We predict that The Cuckoo's Calling is set to be one of the biggest TV shows of 2017.
