Lincoln on TF1: what is the link between the series and the film Bone Collector with Denzel Washington?

TF1 launches this Tuesday evening on its antenna “Lincoln: in pursuit of the Bone Collector”, a police series unlike any other on a quadriplegic investigator. This incredible story is adapted from a bestselling novel.

This Tuesday, May 4 at 9:05 p.m., TF1 launches the broadcast of Lincoln: In pursuit of the Bone Collector, a new detective series straight from the United States that follows Lincoln Rhyme, a legendary investigator and criminologist who became quadriplegic after falling into the trap of his worst enemy, a serial killer by the name of “Bone Collector”.

When this one reappears, Lincoln will team up, from the bottom of his bed, with Amelia Sachs, a young cop who will help him in his investigations in New York.

Created by Mark Bianculli and VJ Boyd (SWAT), Lincoln: Pursuit of the Bone Collector who is worn by Russell Hornsby (Creed II, Grimm) and Arielle Kebbel (Ballers, Vampire Diaries, 50 Shades Lighter) is actually the adaptation of a successful novel entitled Le Désosseur.

Released in 1997, this book is the first opus in a series composed so far of 15 novels all written by Jeffery Deaver, a prolific author of detective works. Much like the series, the novel follows America’s most famous criminologist, who has the ability to paint a portrait of a killer from just a few clues gathered at the crime scene.

But Lincoln Rhyme, injured during an investigation is now only a sharp mind in an inert body, which has only one obsession, to end his life. But when a body is discovered near a railway line, it will resume service to track down the killer by deciphering as quickly as possible the traces it sows in its path with the desire to cover their tracks. Cynical, scholar and methodical, Lincoln Rhyme will lead a real manhunt from his bed in order to find the criminal.

Lincoln: In pursuit of the Bone Collector is not the first adaptation of Boner. Remember, in January 2000 came out on the French screens Bone Collector, a film directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt) with a dream cast.

Lincoln was played by Denzel Washington and Amelia Sachs (last name changed in the feature film to “Donaghy”, the director being afraid that “sounds too much like sex”) Was played by Angelina Jolie. Banned at least 12 years old, the film had managed to generate more than 150 million euros at the international box office. The series will therefore not be a sequel, but a new version of the Bone Collector.

Find the first two episodes of Lincoln: In pursuit of the Bone Collector from this Tuesday evening at 9:05 pm on TF1.
