Storyline

Everyone is affected by Holly Farr's murder. The pathologists find that she was tortured and beaten but died from having her throat slit. The police believe that her death is related to that of Fran Price and the recent leaks of forensic evidence to the press may have led the killer to her. Supt. Barker decides to put armed policeman to guard each of the three pathologists but Harry Cunningham, who saw Barker go into Holly's house, is suspicious of his true motives. When a prominent Russian, Oleg Kolik, seeks asylum in the UK saying he is the true target of the Russian assassins, Harry thinks that Fran Price may have been targeting him in her new book. When Leonid Polyak is murdered while being transferred between prisons, he decides it's time to put his job on the line in the pursuit of justice. Written by garykmcd

Murder turned espionage thriller.
6 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The team have to carry out a PM on Holly. Her death's had a major effect on everyone, Barker is particularly troubled and mistrusted by the team, he gives the team personal protection. Harry attends a press conference put on by Pargeter, Kovic brands Polyak as being responsible for Holly's death. Harry meets Kovic, he discloses Polyak's Kremlin connections, details about Fran's plastic surgeon and asks Harry to plant evidence. Harry's minder proves more useful then expected, it's he that gives a vital clue. The case goes a lot deeper, it has huge international consequences, and a shocking twist.

Scary thought a murderer carrying out their crimes wearing a forensic suit.

I like the developing relationship between Leo and Janet, was he ever more for her then she was for him, no chance.

A real corker of an episode, it's a great concluding episode, the tension in it is smartly created, I love the whole KGB theme. It is definitely at odds with the opener, it begins as a seemingly ordinary murder and transforms into an espionage thriller, it's brilliant.

If Harry jogging a lot is your thing, then this one's for you. 9/10
