Troppo is a new Australian drama series set in Far North Queensland and based on the book, Crimson Lake, by Candice Fox. The show features a young woman, Amanda Pharrell (Nicole Chamoun) who was incarcerated at the age of 16 for 12 years.
Amanda Pharrell sets herself up in business as a private investigator, teaming up with a disgraced former detective, Ted Conkaffey (Thomas Jane).
Their first gig is to locate a missing Korean man.
The show is replete with odd balls, crocodiles and snake venom - and a well drawn, non-stereotypical Care Experienced character.
