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.
DC Anna Travis joins a team on the hunt for a particularly gruesome serial killer. When the latest victim is found and doesn't fit the usual profile of the killer's victims, Travis sets out to prove herself.

Helen Mirren had director approval. She had the the right to look at directors and meet them. She met Tom Hooper and approved him, telling him it had to be his vision and she would protect it. See more »

Just finished watching #6 which was screened in two parts this week on SVT1. Was on the edge of my seat for both episodes.
Mirren is, as always, a joy to watch.
This riveting story is blessed with a great ending. It felt really good after this one. Quite a lot of thriller/police dramas end without one feeling that justice has been meted out. Here, the main antagonists get their just desserts. And I mean everybody. Especially the woman from the secret service. That look she gives her man at the end is priceless.
Beautifully shot and nicely scored. A great bit of telly to be sure.
Top marks here!
