Storyline

Superintendent Jane Tennison, on loan to another jurisdiction, is sent in to investigate a murder of a businessman. It looks like a fairly obvious sex murder, but the facts prove otherwise. Now as Tennison investigates, she uncovers the crime's link to the goings on with the local municipal government and finds something larger and darker there than she anticipated.

Mirren continues to be exceptional
30 April 2001 | by (Newark, NJ) – See all my reviews

In this "Prime Suspect" movie, Helen Mirren continues to show why her Jane Tennison is nothing less than one of the greatest characters in the history of television. "Inner Circles", while not one of the better stories in the series, is still worth watching just to see Tennison confront human darkness once again, this time in an upper-class milieu.
