Top of the Lake: China Girl is a crime mystery story that begins four years on from the explosive ending of series one. After the shocking events that rocked her hometown in New Zealand, Detective Robin Griffin, recently returned to Sydney, is trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realises “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin’s search to discover “China Girl’s” identity takes her into the city’s criminal underbelly and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart. 

The series will be shown on BBC First later in 2017. BBC First is available in Australia via Foxtel and FetchTV.
