As a prison riot erupts into violence, Red comes face to face with the ring leader: the man who once held him hostage and nearly drove him mad. But what they don't know is a killer's amongst them, preying on their weaknesses.
A series of brutal sex murders disturbingly similar to the pattern of Superintendent Jane Tennison's first major case leads to the awful suggestion that she may have caught the wrong man the first time.
Det. Supt. Michael Walker, teamed with DI North and DCI Connor, follow each case from crime committed, through the pursuit of justice, to the law courts where the efforts of the force will be tested - sometimes to breaking point.
I decided to watch this based on the rating here and the positive reviews.
I don't agree with the high rating and the very positive reviews, while this is not a bad mini series it's nothing special either in my opinion. Some compare it to Se7en, that is absolutely not the case.
It is your average,run off the mill, cop vs serial killer scenario, without giving too much away of the plot i can say that it baffles me that the the connection wasn't made earlier (i did and nothing is given away). So i was watching this thinking there had to be another plot twist that i missed, i didn't.
Furthermore, the production is average, the acting is above average but what annoys me with these kind of series that there always has to be something wrong with the "hero". Either a drinking problem, separated, dead child or you name it. Why is that? In my opinion, if you have nothing to do an a rainy Sunday afternoon you can watch this but don't expect anything too much. They tried too hard.
