Plot Synopsis

Based on Petra Hammesfahr's book of the same name, THE SINNER is an eight-episode limited series that follows Cora Tannetti, a young mother and unassuming housewife who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror has no idea why. After she violently stabs a beachgoer to death, the event sparks an investigation by local police and causes sudden confusion in a small town. The driving force for this crime thriller is not the "who" or the "what" -- but the "why" -- as Det. Harry Ambrose finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman's buried motive. Together they travel a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.
On Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, USA Network premiered the final of THE SINNER, as Cora's fate is determined.
