Summary:  "Rebus wakes in the opening scene, troubled by the night's dreams and his hangover. The dreams precurse the story of his colleague, Jim Margolies, a younger cop with everything to live for and everything going for him. Rebus' work takes him to the housing estate where vigilante posses are creating anarchy because a paedophile, Darren Rough, has been housed in their community. Then, there's John's childhood sweetheart, Janice, and her search for her lost son, Stuart...
  Rebus finds feelings within himself which surprise and disturb him, some empathy for Rough, disbelief and grief at what happens to Margolies, and ... what might just be a lasting happiness that will have him sleeping in his own bed again, instead of spending his nights in the chair in the window, drinking, listening to music and drinking.
  Full circle."

My thoughts: This is the third in a series of films adapted from the novels of Ian Rankin. It's based on Rankin's tenth book, Dead Souls
If you've read the books and are interested in discussing them (and the TV series), I invite you to check out the Inspector Rebus club on Yahoo.

Rebus: Dead Souls News: ITV will be running the last three REBUS movies in September 2001.
