Takeshi Kovacs is brought to Earth by wealthy Laurens Bancroft to prove that Bancroft's first mysterious death was murder and not suicide. To do this, Kovacs must be "resleeved" into the body of a disgraced police officer to be on the case. While investigating, he develops a relationship with the police lieutenant who was involved former "occupant" of his body. To solve the crime, he encounters a number of violent characters, including robot killers in settings ranging from virtual paradises to seedy houses of prostitution.

No, you should drop what you're doing and read the book.

It looks like a few bits have changed from the book which at first glance seems unnecessary, but the general aesthetic looks first rate.

Really hope they don’t fuck this up.

They've jacked the price up on Amazon for the book it seems.

Ooh, it's a great sci-fi* book, I hope they don't fuck it up.

*Not a "detective story in a sci-fi setting". You know who you are.

*Waves*

Also, at risk of dragging this up again, Altered Carbon is a sci-fi book. The core plot is anchored around the sci-fi concepts. Unlike, for example, Alien.

Quite strongly disagree. It’s essentially nothing more than
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
a locked room murder mystery
which is a plot as old as Chandler. And it has strong sub-themes of
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
the dehumanisation of extreme wealth and power, the games played by the wealthy to amuse themselves, and the perilous state of normal people caught up in those games
which, again, is 100% classic noir. It’s a predominately noir story in a sci-fi setting.
