Storyline

Banks defies orders by informally speaking to Martin Fleming on his own though he gets no results. Tom Rothwell returns from America for his father's funeral and tells the police he fell out with his father after seeing him with another woman. Pamela identifies her attacker as a rough-looking Irishman named by police records as Arthur Jameson,an arms fan and former client of Norcliffe but Jameson kills himself before he can be questioned. Following Tom's information Banks discovers that the woman in question was not Pamela. The trail leads to a house where all is revealed - including a money laundering scheme which justifies Banks' suspicions. The case closed Helen at last begins to integrate with the rest of the team.

Quotes

[At the murder scene, the SOCOs found a fragment from a pornography magazine, showing a penis and a machine gun, so Blackstone is searching pornography web sites. Banks has suggested to Morton that in order to fit in and get the team on her side she should occasionally try to make her team laugh]

DI Helen Morton..."Shut up and deal"
29 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In part 1 DCI Banks and his team (sans DS Cabbot, who is on maternity leave) attempt to solve the brutal murder of "unassuming accountant" Keith Rothwell (Dominic Mafham) after he and his wife returned home from a wedding anniversary with his status conscious wife. They return home to find their daughter bound and gagged, and then the murderer blows his head off in the garage.

Or does he?

There's a bit of a twist at the end here regarding who was really murdered, and it fits within the narrative of the midlife crisis that some men go through I guess.

The Yorkshire coast is beautiful, and you can feel the cold weather in this compelling and gripping instalment of DCI Banks. We get to see Leeds in all its glory, and the architecture is impressive.

It's good to see DI Morton (Doc Martin's Caroline Catz) being part of the team when she joins her team (DCI Banks, DS Jackman, DC Blackstone) for a poker match at work.
