Review

Piles or pyorrhoea? I still can’t decide what is ailing sour-faced Seville detective Javier Falcón (Marton Csokas), and there are flat scenes where you just want to shout, “Again, please, with feeling!” It’s a shame because the conclusion to this two-part murder case, which brings the threat close to Falcón’s home and family, is otherwise engrossing.

His artist father’s “masterpieces”, The Falcón Nudes – abysmal daubs – reveal their secrets. Fabulous Kerry Fox gets more to chew on as Javier’s sister. Oh, and there’s a bullfight, if you can stomach it.

Summary

Part two of two. Falcon becomes convinced Consuelo is innocent and that the guilt lies elsewhere. After receiving a stream of diary excerpts from an anonymous source, the detective uncovers the existence of a cabal devised by his father - which also included the murder victim. Marton Csokas stars.
