The Sinner is an adaptation of 1999 novel by German crime writer Petra Hammesfahr. Jessica Biel plays Cora Tanetti, a young mother, who's day at the beach with her family takes a sinister twist when seemingly on impulse murders an innocent man by stabbing him in the neck.


But the under-the-radar thriller is a crime series with a difference.

Instead of explaining what happened, the rest of the series focuses on why Tanetti did what she did.
