Storyline

Andy Dalziel is not a happy man. He's been told that he's on his last operational case and will soon be moved to a desk job. He's feeling his age and is worried about his future to the point where he is suffering from severe insomnia. The police have a puzzler on their hands. The autopsy of a man found dead reveals a two-year old bullet from an AK-47 lodged in his spine. When Richard Mattis returns from Russia having successfully negotiated a major contract for the family-owned shoe company, he also brings home his lovely interpreter, Natalia. When Richard is found killed, Andy is convinced there has to be a connection between the two cases. Written by garykmcd

A very solid episode.
13 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

It's a fairly basic, run of the mill plot, with a fairly obvious victim, and fairly obvious killer, but the story is very well delivered, the characters are great, but it's the acting that makes it so watchable.

Andy is normally grumpy and irascible, but he is even worse here, obviously terrified by the thought of getting older and retiring, you really get a sense of the anxiety he is feeling, a particularly great job by Clarke here, Peter was just as grumpy. Well acted all round, Alison Steadman was excellent, as she always is.

So the crime itself wasn't exactly baffling, but the story and character play make this a very good watch. 8/10
