Crooked House knows what its job is: to set up a tangled web of colourful characters, throw in a few red herrings, set off its dynamite, and make its exit while the smoke is still in the air.

"Crooked House" keeps you guessing, right up to its shocking conclusion (of which Christie was especially proud, naming it a personal favorite among her extensive oeuvre).

All in all, a hugely enjoyable, sumptuous adaptation that, while never attempting to break the Christie mould, imbued the story with a pleasingly contemporary feel.

The superb cast provides mild pleasures, as do some aspects of the elaborate mystery itself.

Succeeds where recent adaptations, such as Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express, failed: the how is just as important as the who.

Irons more than holds his own at the centre of this swirling mystery, and Martini proves an enchanting leading lady, but the real draws are Close and Anderson, who bring a ferocious zest to their over-the-top characters.

A visual treat but a less-than-tantalising mystery.
