An elderly lady loses her money on an investment; a conjuror is pursued by thugs; and a clairvoyant mentions the name of the richest man in Europe and his mysterious company. Seemingly unconnected events set Sally Lockhart on the trail of an evil far more awful than she could ever imagine.

TV adaptation

A BBC TV Movie adaptation starring Billie Piper as Sally. It aired December 30 2007 on BBC1 in the UK. [ [ BBC - Drama - The Shadow in the North ] ] It also aired in the United States on the PBS station "Masterpiece Mystery!" under the title "The Sally Lockhart Mysteries: The Shadow in the North."

All four books will eventually be adapted for television by the BBC.


The character of Hopkinson/Nordenfels seems to be based on Swedish inventor Thorsten Nordenfelt, particularly his move from Sweden to England, his investment in British railway technology and the development of the Nordenfelt gun which all have parallels in the book.
