Both Criminal Intent and its L&O twin Special Victims Unit are precision-engineered procedurals that crank out more narrative satisfaction in an episode than some shows manage in a series. They’re sometimes over-macho, but with surprises. For instance, an intriguing plotline in this episode, about the super-rich going on “pirate safaris”, delivers a major shock.

About this programme

1/16. Part one of two. A tourist yacht cruising off the coast of Somalia opens fire on a boat, killing a sheikh and his wife. Goren and Eames investigate and find a link to a Somali arms dealer at the centre of a federal case, and are shocked to discover that Captain Danny Ross could be implicated. The crime drama returns, starring Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Eric Bogosian.
