Series 12 - 3. Bittersweet

Review by:
Jane Rackham

When partially decomposed body parts set in blocks of concrete are discovered on a dump, Sara realises that the MO matches that of an old case in which five teenage girls were kidnapped, raped and chopped up by a manipulative, sadistic woman and her husband. The man’s still in prison but the woman, Gina, has just been released.

It’s become a personal vendetta for Sara, who loudly announces to Gina’s neighbours what the woman did. “I was just taking her temperature,” explains Sara. “Yeah — rectally!” replies DB (Ted Danson) sarcastically.

About this programme

3/22. Nick discovers pieces of a decomposing body in an art exhibit made up of discarded concrete blocks and his colleagues launch an investigation. The case reminds Sara of one involving a married couple who abused and killed girls before disposing of their corpses in similar fashion - and discovers one of them has recently been released on parole. Meanwhile, Greg and Morgan look into the death of a former model who appears to have drowned in a vat of chocolate. Guest starring Chelsea Hobbs (Make It or Break It) and Stacy Haiduk (Prison Break).
