Adnan Syed Case: Best Books to Read on Wrongful Conviction

The first episode of HBO’s new documentary, The Case Against Adnan Syed, premiered this past Sunday, once again bringing the murder conviction of the Baltimore man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend back into the headlines. Syed, the subject of the popular 2014 podcast, “Serial,” is currently serving a life sentence in prison for the 1999 death of Hae Min Lee.

The now 38-year-old Syed has long maintained his innocence, and had been holding out for a new trial, something a Maryland appeals court actually granted him last year. However, the state’s highest court ruled last week, in a 4-3 decision, to reinstate Syed’s conviction and deny him a new trial, arguing that “there was not a significant or substantial possibility that the jury would have reached a different verdict.”

While “Serial” helped to propel Syed’s case back into the courts, it remains to be seen what impact, if any, The Case Against Adnan Syed will have. HBO is airing the remaining three episodes over the next three Sundays (you can also stream it for free online with a free 7-day trial to HBO via Amazon) and critics weren’t given all of the episodes to screen ahead of time.

While you wait for the episodes to hit the air, revisit Syed’s case and read up on four other landmark true crime cases with these best-selling books that tell the story of how the quest for justice isn’t always best served in a courtroom.
