Storyline

A psychiatric patient, Reginald Aitken, who has been hospitalised for the last 18 years manages to escape from hospital. The same night a 17 year old girl, Sadie Carr (Commander Blake's god daughter), goes missing from a night club. Reginald is discovered holding the girl's body and covered in his blood. Reginald is thought to be the killer as his fingerprints were found on the murder weapon, however, the body of an earlier victim is uncovered, and it is proven that she was killed when he was locked up in the hospital. DCI Bridges gets the unsolicited help from a rather rude DI from Amsterdam, Van Hauten, who had similar cases in Amsterdam. Written by Branny

more of a police procedural
4 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

The corruption is no longer the story. DI Carol Browning is gone. This is much more of a standard police procedural. Commander Blake's goddaughter Sadie Carr is murdered while out nightclubbing. Escaped psychiatric patient Reginald Aitken is caught with the body. DCI Mike Hedges quickly assumes that Aitken killed Carr. Police detective Eric Van Hauten arrives from Amsterdam investigating similar murders. Hedges rejects the outsider until he can no longer ignore new evidences.

Blake is pulled back from the dark side but she is still terribly flawed. Hedges continues to be close-minded. Van Hauten is interesting but maybe over-acting a little. There is plenty of over-acting in the Aitken character. He mutters, hangs upside-down like a bat, and walks like a monkey. In total, he's a caricature of a psych patient. Overall, this is a functional standard police procedural with extremely flawed characters.
