Review

The Welsh tourist board clearly had a word because the Ceredigion countryside has frequently been bathed in sunshine in series two. Happily, the extra vitamin D is wasted on DCI Mathias, who makes his Swedish forebear Wallander seem positively chipper. He still prefers to do his sniffing around in the dead of night with a torch, while suspicious characters lurk in the shadows.

This week's unsavoury case is fished out of a lake and the first mystery is the victim's identity. Mathias believes a missing primary school teacher and her belligerent ex are embroiled, but there are enough twists to keep armchair detectives on their toes.

Summary

When a body is discovered in a remote lake, it leads Mathias and the team to investigate the complicated private life of a missing teacher from a small rural school, which in turn causes them to enter a world of secrets. Crime drama, starring Richard Harrington. In English and Welsh.
