Promo for True Crime Sweden.
Nancy Drew’s keen mind is tested when she searches for Mr. Crowley’s missing will.
Some relevant characters:
Nancy Drew – 16 or 18, depending on the version you read. Blonde, blue-eyed, detective with a razor sharp intuition.
The Turner Sisters (Mary and Edna) – Aunties. Guardians of Judy. Former friends of Crowley.
Judy – 5 years old. Orphaned after her parents die in a tragic boat explosion.
The Hoover sisters – Allison has operatic talent. Grace bakes cakes and brews tea.
The Tophams (Richard, his Mrs., Ada, and Isabel) – Inherited Josiah Crowley’s estate. Totally rude; “bougie af” per Daniel’s take. Daughters Ada and Isabel are the Heathers.
Josiah Crowley – Deceased. Formerly filthy rich. Seems to have promised a lot of people a lot of money.
Carson Drew – Nancy’s handsome father. Well-known lawyer in River Heights.
Hannah Gruen – The Drew’s housekeeper and surrogate mother to Nancy.
Signor Mascagni – Retired professional voice instructor, now gives lessons to the gifted few of River Heights.
