Storyline

The police think they have a break in the case when the Bay Harbor Butcher sends a 32 page manifesto to a local newspaper. Only thing is Dexter had a very specific purpose in doing what he did, as the police now go off into every direction imaginable. With Sgt. Doakes having set his sights on him yet again, Dexter realizes that he's going to have to play hardball to protect himself and so takes him head on. Rita comes to the end of her tether with her domineering mother. Lila sells a sculpture for a tidy sum and she and Dexter have a romantic dinner out. When Dexter tells her that he is going to a school event for Rita's son, she takes drastic action to get his attention. Written by garykmcd

Very interesting take on a "serial killer"
3 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the type of series that gets its hooks in, to such an extent, that you hang for the next episode. The cast is great in typical HBO style with depth of character developed for many regular cast members. Unlike most American series with the emphasis on zero character developments for all but the "stars".

With Dexter, his voice over of inner most thoughts, lets you share the drivers seat as he corrects flaws in the Florida justice system.

In my view he may have erred in his choice of lady, as "The Bill's" Don Beech's daughter is minor league compared with the former ice skater. However one can forgive him this minor blemish when considering the entertainment value provided by this excellent series.

This series, in the tradition of "Cracker", "Prime Suspect" and the Danish series "Unit One" and "The Eagle", despite being from a different perspective, provides very enjoyable viewing in the "police/crime" genre.
