Dalgleish exceeds himself!
21 February 2010 | by (Tyler, Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

"A Certain Justice" was a long-awaited novel release by Dame P.D. James and it was worth the wait. Even more worthwhile was the wait for the movie/TV release.

Roy Marsden's Adam Dalgliesh is simply superb: cerebral yet human, captivating, mesmerizing, never a dull moment. James is considered the "queen of the modern mystery novel" and who can argue? In this episode, the irony of the title is not missed, as the film touches on more themes than just murder. A judge is found dead, murdered, with a number of bizarre clues and incidents that relate to the case and it takes Dalgleish (and his team) a while to piece together the puzzle. But viewers need not worry. Every scene is worth watching and never slows down, as it approaches an incredibly suspenseful climax. An A-plus for sure.
