DCI Luther investigates the violent kidnapping of Jessica Carrodus by a gang intent on recovering a batch of stolen diamonds. They've given the woman's husband James an hour to deliver the goods and as proof of their seriousness, have already cut out her tongue. Luther, always ready to bend the rules, retrieves diamonds from another case in the evidence locker but the delivery goes wrong. It's also revealed that one of Luther's colleagues was in on the original robbery. In the midst of all this, Luther's wife Zoe has decided to break all contact with him. When he finds her dead on her kitchen floor, he realizes all of the evidence will point to him as the killer and he goes on the run. Written by garykmcd

Who Has the Real Integrity and Love?
11 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Once again this insanely violent series rises to the top. Luther gets a case of a kidnapped woman who is part of a fraudulent effort to pass off phony art. When a group of villains come to double cross them, the man is sent to come up with diamonds that were given as payment. He goes to the police, but he is crooked and can't be candid. She has her tongue cut out by the bad guys (I said it is violent). Everything goes south, including the fact that Luther's colleague, Ian, is in on the heist, not realizing where it would go sour. Unfortunately, everything leads to a huge price being paid for his actions. Like "Game of Thrones," characters are subject to being erased to progress the plot. While this is excellent cinema, it's very hard to watch.
