What is Ragdoll about?

Based on Daniel Cole's popular novel of the same name, Ragdoll is a dark, comedic crime investigation that follows the investigation of The Ragdoll Killer. It explores the gruesome murders of six people who were killed, dismembered and sewn into one body, known as the Ragdoll and the search for the twisted serial killer, who sends the police a list of the next possible victims.

AMC describes the series as a "darkly funny, gruesomely imaginative serial killer thriller, Ragdoll also captures the fascinating but flawed friends struggling with the consequences of institutionalization and trauma."

A synopsis on alibi.uktv.co.uk reads: "Disgraced detective DS Rose (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) has just been reinstated to the London police when he and his colleagues, newly promoted DI Baxter (Thalissa Teixeira) and young American ingenue, DC Edmunds (Lucy Hale) are called to a grim discovery in a block of flats. A 'Ragdoll' hangs from the ceiling, made up of six different body parts. When a hit list is released naming six more victims due to die, the team must race against time with the killer creating ever more ingenious methods to murder their victims. With a suspicious Edmunds looking into Rose's ever increasing erratic behaviour, Rose sets out on a secret investigation to find the killer before it's too late."
