DCI Luther investigates the violent kidnapping of Jessica Carrodus by a gang intent on recovering a batch of stolen diamonds. They've given the woman's husband James an hour to deliver the goods and as proof of their seriousness, have already cut out her tongue. Luther, always ready to bend the rules, retrieves diamonds from another case in the evidence locker but the delivery goes wrong. It's also revealed that one of Luther's colleagues was in on the original robbery. In the midst of all this, Luther's wife Zoe has decided to break all contact with him. When he finds her dead on her kitchen floor, he realizes all of the evidence will point to him as the killer and he goes on the run. Written by

John Luther asks his partner to call "Detective Munch, in New York. He works the Special Victims Unit." This is a possible reference to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
(1999) which stars Richard Belzer
as Detective John Munch, a character which has appeared on American television for over 15 years. The character first appeared as a regular in Homicide: Life on the Street
(1993) and later carried over to become a regular on the equally long-running SVU, also an American NBC show. See more
