Open Wounds (Sharp Objects) is a miniseries that arrived on HBO a few years ago, starring Amy Adams and which told a plot very similar to an 8-episode puzzle, in which users had to piece together the pieces of a couple of murders that its protagonist, a journalist, he had to investigate.

HBO is usually a main platform when it comes to telling police stories, investigative stories, and in general any plot related to murders or mafias, as we have already told you with The Sopranos. If you are looking for good alternatives on HBO Spain, these 4 series are the best possible alternative to open wounds.

Sharp Objects is a critically acclaimed HBO miniseries

True detective

Obviously if we're looking for a series that investigates crime investigations, T is one of its greatest exponents. This series where each season brings us different characters and storylines is one of the highest rated and viewed on the HBO platform. In the first season, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are two opposing cops on the hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. In the second season, a strange murder brings together three cops (Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch) and a professional criminal (Vince Vaughn). And finally, the third season, starring Mahershala Ali, focuses on the gruesome murder of two children in Arkansas and the investigation of the case over 35 years.

Little big lies

Big Little Lies is another HBO series that excels when it comes to telling a plot around a murder. Featuring three world-class actresses, this series is one of the greatest exponents of the dramatic and murderous genre. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley star in this HBO series that tells the story of three Northern California mothers whose seemingly perfect lives end in murder.

The Jinx

We took a moment from fiction to bring you what is perhaps the best documentary on real crime to be seen today. The Jinx it's half documentary, half recreating reality through performance, with a final part being a simple interview… which helped solve a crime. El Gafe investigates the crimes allegedly committed by Robert Durst, a person who despite being the biggest suspect of all was still at large. We already warned you, the final part of this documentary is one of the most impressive you can see.

  • Year: 2015
  • Seasons: 1.
  • Episodes: 6.
  • Approximate duration: 45 minutes.


The weird Steven Soderbergh offers us a series based on all kinds of mysteries around a writer. Mosaic is centered on a successful children's book writer and illustrator whose idyllic life is filled with deceit, lies, corruption and death. You can find this somewhat particular alternative to what Open Wounds offers on HBO Spain. Indeed, the hand of the flamboyant Soderbergh makes this series not for everyone, but it certainly has some appeal.

  • Year: 2018
  • Seasons: 1.
  • Episodes: 6.
  • Approximate duration: 45 minutes.
