Love Inspector Wexford
16 July 2018 | by brndshounSee all my reviews

The portrayal of the no nonsense copper played by George Baker is so realistic. As usual, this Rendell mystery is well written. It is worth note that this is one of Idris Elba's first acting jobs at least on TV. Not many lines but it is after all Idris Elba.
