Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison's investigation of the murder of a Bosnian refugee leads her to one, or possibly two, Serbian war criminals determined to silence the last witness to a massacre a decade before.
A series of brutal sex murders disturbingly similar to the pattern of Superintendent Jane Tennison's first major case leads to the awful suggestion that she may have caught the wrong man the first time.
Fitz returns to Manchester after living 10 years in Australia with his wife and youngest son. He is soon drawn into the investigation of a British soldier who may have been traumatized by his years serving in Northern Ireland.
Tennison on a new beat investigates the killing of a drug runner, with the runner's employer, "The Street," as her prime suspect. Meanwhile, The Street is conducting his own investigation into the killing, with the help of his team of hoodlums and his vicious Rottweilers. And as Tennison rankles that her subordinates accuse her of sleeping her way to the top, she begins an affair with her married supervisor. Written by

Good thriller, terrific performances by O'Hara and Mackintosh
This was the only Prime Suspect movie I saw. The story was good and very intense. Its main attractions are the phenomenal, awesome David O'Hara, a great actor in a good-cop character, and Steven Mackintosh, who was electrifying as a psycho drug dealer. But to put as great an actress as Helen Mirren in that PITIFUL character was just very sad. I don't know who came up with that character, but Tennison's errors of judgment were so lame and plenty that the character herself made me awfully embarrassed of being female. If male chauvinists ever need a proof positive that women ARE the inferior gender, they should look no further. A person like that can't be trusted with boiling an egg, let alone superintending in the PD. If you want to see Mirren in a role worthy of her talent, AND another mesmerizing performance by David O'Hara, go see "Some Mother's Son". But don't get me wrong: this is absolutely worth seeing!
