As a Christie fan who was not familiar with this particular story, this feels much bleaker than the average novel by Dame Agatha.It's a competent whodunit, well-cast, well-performed. The second act feels a little slow, all the more because nearly every character is sour, bitter and miserable; they lack a certain variety in tone which could have made the dialogue more lively.Still, it's a solid effort and I was genuinely surprised by the denouement, which I won't spoil.6,5/10
