I’m so excited because overnight last night, season five of Bosch premiered on Amazon. To quickly recap last season… The Korea Town Killer case was finally wrapped up, although it was slightly anticlimactic because the killer was accidentally killed when he was hit by a car. Crate and Barrel accidentally got the “collar” because they picked up that accident. It was a funny but kind of a letdown that all the time spent showing the killer riding around on his bicycle and killing random people felt like a waste when it ended the way it did. Also, Harry (re-)solved his mother’s murder…for good this time, I think. Of course there was the “case of the season,” the Angels Flight murder, which was done well but nothing outrageous to speak of. But the biggest thing was the murder of Harry’s ex-wife (the mother of his teenage daughter, Maddie), Eleanor. Those of us who have read the books knew it was coming at some point, although this was done differently than the books. But it was emotional and intense and showed some great scenes with Harry and Maddie. And it helped bring Harry and J. Edgar’s friendship back to closer than it had been, so that was an unexpected side benefit. Plus, it will set up more drama and emotion for Harry and Maddie going forward, so I’m looking forward to that.

Season five is based on the 2017 novel Two Kinds of Truth, the 20th book in Michael Connelly’s long-running Bosch series. Fifteen months after the events of season four, an investigation into a murder at a Hollywood pharmacy exposes a sophisticated opioid ring, and Bosch goes undercover in a dangerous move. But the season also involves a case from Bosch’s past that resulted in the conviction of a serial killer but has since raised the specter of police misconduct – which could call his entire career into question.
