As this episode opens a man is confronted and shot dead in a restaurant. Afterwards all of those questioned claim to have seen mothering; apart from one man who thought the killer was a woman... it was a man... with a beard. Checking up on this witness it quickly emerges that he has a criminal record and that his lawyer was police woman Alex's brother, Paul. While the police don't know it we see how the killer is deliberately getting Paul into his debt so he can be pressured into finding out what is going on in the police investigation. Back with the police there are more tensions between Alex and Steiner; the latter is also having problems with his marriage and is considering taking a new position away from the team.
This episode was a solid enough conclusion to the current season. There was no mystery as we saw the killer committing the murder then saw how he pressured Paul to get information from his sister. This doesn't mean there was no tension; we see that Paul is mixed up with really dangerous people and there is the question of whether the police will be able to safeguard a witness who has yet to come forward before the killer gets to her. The tensions between Steiner and new boss Alex have dragged on a little too long; hopefully it will all be resolved by the time the next season starts. Beck's role seems to be ever decreasing which is a pity; at least we got a very funny scene with him and his neighbour. Overall a solid enough story; I don't think the series is quite as good as it used to be but it is good enough for me to hope for another season.
