After the caregiver of a twelve year old autistic boy is stabbed to death in her home, DCI Lewis and her team discover she had been participating in a dating service and led an active sex life. There are many suspects, but the key to solving the case lies with the only eyewitness to the crime, the autistic son of two of the suspects, but he isn't talking to Janine... or even his own parents.

Autistic and yet full of love
13 June 2008 | by (Olliergues, France) – See all my reviews

This episode is very strong and powerful from the very start. All the characters are potential killers. They all have a motive and none has an alibi. And the solution that will come out is a little bit easy because of the final discovery of the murder weapon that should never have been found and especially not with finger prints on it if the ultimate outcome is to be believed. That's maybe a weakness among the plot-writers. A Deus Ex Machina coming out of nowhere. The end of the second season. The need of a vacation, or is it a holiday? We'll see in the next series if the weakness has been strengthened enough to enable the series to last some more. But the culprit is unluckily a very difficult case that cannot be depicted in any way, thence the weakness in the plot.
