A good send-off
14 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the last in the Inspector Lynley series, and I'm sad to see them go. However, the show goes out with a very strong episode.

Lynley and Havers investigate the murder of a teenage girl and the disappearance of another one, this girl a diabetic in need of insulin. Fairly early in the show, they think they have a line on their man -- but how to find where he has stashed the girl and how to get enough proof for warrants becomes difficult. Havers goes to work on the man's wife, a battered wife who won't leave her husband and won't be disloyal to him.

A really good episode, a little different from what the show did in the past, where clues to a murder are found in happenings from long ago. In "Know Thine Enemy," other questions beside that of the identity of the killer are involved and cause friction between Lynley and Havers.

I love Nathaniel Parker and Sharon Small in their roles and also together. They made a terrific team. I'm just sorry it ended.
