Luther leaves Jenny in his flat to investigate an incident at a service station where a man with a baseball bat killed one motorist,maimed another and destroyed their cars. From CCTV footage it appears that he was rolling dice to select victims. The same man later enters an office disguised as a motor-cycle courier and kills five more people before Luther arrests him though in custody he refuses to speak. As Luther returns home to find that Jenny has killed Toby Kent after his attempted rape of her the dice man's exact double prepares another outrage. Written by don @ minifie-1

Murder at the roll of the dice
28 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode opens with a new murderer appearing on the streets of London; this one is rather strange; he started of straying graffiti on a car at a petrol station then moved on to vandalising another car. When the owners confronted him one of them ended up blind the other was killed. Luther was meant to be having a day off so he could help Jenny find a job but is soon on the case. It doesn't take the team all that long to come to the belief that the killer is deciding what actions to take based off the roll of a die. They also realise that now his twisted game has started it won't end till he is dead or caught. As if this wasn't enough for Luther, criminal Toby Kent is pressuring Luther to help him again saying he will harm Jenny if he fails to do as he is told.

This was another exciting episode; the crime involving the dice-roller was both disturbing and bizarre and Luther's dealings with Toby lead to some particularly tense moments when it looks as if he might get caught. As always Idris Elba does a good job as Luther and Aimee-Ffion Edwards is good as relatively new character Jenny. The end of the episode provided a nice twist that I hadn't seen coming meaning this won't be the one part story I thought it was going to be. The only real disappointment in an otherwise gripping episode was the lack of Alice; I do hope we haven't seen the last of her.
