The murder investigation leads them to a strip club run by James Harper - the owner of the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run. Written by
DCI Janine Lewis returns to active duty after her maternity leave, and she's soon up to her neck in murders: an unidentified young woman is found brutally slain in a river; a little girl - a schoolmate of Janine's son - is run over by a car outside her school, and the driver doesn't stop; and one of the two suspects for the hit-and-run incident is found shot in the head. What's the connection between the three cases?
"Hit And Run", the second episode of "Blue Murder", is not quite up to the standards of the first. There are some good plot twists (one, in particular, seems to be inspired by a famous 1990's movie, which I won't mention here), but the episode is a little too grim to be enjoyable. Appropriate for the subject matter, I know, but I probably wouldn't watch this one again. **1/2 out of 4.
