[Gerard Etienne's body has been discovered]
Mr Etienne took over the firm fairly recently. Would you say that he was well liked?
[Mrs Demery looks quizzically at him]
Well, he wouldn't have been carried out of here in a body bag if he'd been a little ray of sunshine, now would he, Commander?

The story is interesting and educated with some good character development. My biggest disappointment is weak development of the lead detective. What saved the detective investigation aspect of the film was his two assistants.
It could be they intended the film to focus on the employees of the publishing house. All of which were suspects. It's worth watching but if you are new to the Mystery Series I suggest Prime Suspect, Touching Evil and Heat of the Sun.
