Probably one of the stupidest mystery stories I've seen
27 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's first ignore the fact that you have flashbacks from a suspect, and you can't determine if the suspect is really guilty of murder or just covering up for some buddy from his childhood. The chief character is detective constable Thorne who operates on the basis of instincts and is always arguing with his obnoxious, naturally stupid superiors.

Then there are his two subordinates, of which one is a an Asian woman who is a cocaine addict who does lines every chance she gets. The other subordinate is an African-Brit and when they have a free half-hour in the middle of the night, they have a go at some sex. After the sex, he then goes to the bathroom where he finds her doing lines and her response is, "Don't you knock before opening a bathroom door?" That's the end of that scene.

Later that evening she is supposed to be guarding the key witness, who might be a killer (since no one has established clear evidence, but he confesses to killings presumably because he wants protection from his buddy from 10 years ago who might be the killer of women.) She sends another cop who is to help her guard the suspect for coffee, and while he's gone, she ducks into the bathroom for some more coke. She then hears noises coming from the bedroom and is terrified. Since she's not a judo expert, she tries to escape through a window or door, neither of which will open, and whispers into a cellphone for help which does arrive.

Of course, this being Britain, even cops protecting someone from a killer don't carry guns. I guess that, in the UK, when a killer points a gun at a cop, he or she is supposed to do a flying tackle and hope that the criminal drops the gun. At this point, I couldn't stand the stupidity and confusion any longer and shut it off.
