The Bone Collector (1999)

Film details


Thriller. Four years after a tragic accident leaves New York criminologist Lincoln Rhyme paralysed, he lives out his life tended by his nurse and seeing very few friends. His former partner asks him to work on a current case, that of a multi-millionaire who has just disappeared, along with his wife, after entering an airport taxi on the previous day. The case becomes increasingly bizarre when the corpse of the millionaire is found underneath the subway, with one hand pointing upwards - and with one finger apparently skinned purposely to the bone.
