It’s the penultimate episode and I’m still no wiser than I was at the start of this convoluted, baffling, messy thriller. Just a tiny clue as to what might be going on in the little Scottish town would be most welcome.
Instead we get bluster, lumpen dialogue and a tone that veers alarmingly. Is
cosy crime, like Hamish Macbeth? Or is it Reservoir Dogs in the Highlands? Who knows? The writing is all over the place and none of the characters convinces, notably that flipping maverick forensic psychologist. “Go away, Blake,” a police chief yells at him. Yes, Blake, GO AWAY.
It’s a great backdrop, but viewers cannot live by scenery alone. Sometimes we need plot.
Annie continues her determined investigation into the killer's identity, and reaches a breakthrough when she discovers the weapons that were used in the murders. Seeking help from Quigley, she is finally able to track down the culprit, and the two detectives put their lives on the line to put a stop to the slaughter. However, their relentless pursuit of justice leads them into a dangerous confrontation, as they stalk the armed murderer through the dark corridors of the area's hydro-electric dam.
