Holly in The Bill Hodges Trilogy

She is the younger cousin of Janey and Olivia Gibney. Holly suffers from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), synesthesia, sensory processing disorder, and she’s somewhere on the autism spectrum. Despite this, she’s very observant, refreshingly unfiltered and unaware of her innocence. She runs Finder’s Keepers as of Bill Hodges’s death.

Holly in The Outsider (TV Series)

Holly is an eccentric savant investigator. She gets hired to backtrack Terry's movements during his trip. While attempting to speak with Terry's father at his nursing home, Holly discovers that a male nurse at the institution was convicted of murdering two young girls around the time of the visit.



  • The character was white in the original work but is black in this adaptation. Price stated that this was due to Bateman wanting a role for Erivo in the series, and that Price originally had the character as a white Lithuanian American.
