The Lincoln Lawyer – season 1

The Lincoln Lawyer is attorney Mickey Haller, half-brother of Michael Connelly’s mainstay character Detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch.

I like the Mickey Haller character, but not as much as Bosch himself.

They appear together in some novels.

Matthew McConaughey played Haller in the excellent 2011 movie adaptation.

Manuel Garcia-Rulfo is Mickey in the 2022 TV adaptation. MUCH different than McConaughey.

My favourite in the TV show is Becki Newton as Lorna Crain, Haller’s 2nd wife and office manager.

I also like Krista Warner as Hayley, Mickey’s teenage daughter. She’s very natural and believable.

Though reviews have been mixed, I quite enjoyed the acting and the plot lines.

The ending is strong. I’m confident season 2 will get the green light.

I’ve never been much of a fan of courtroom procedurals. BUT both this series and the book I was reading — Full Disclosure by Beverley McLachlin — both have cases with tunnel vision. The police assumed from the beginning that husband killed wife.
