Episode 4: The Sea Glass

Summary

A fisherman's body is found tangled up in a North Sea trawler's net. Vera and her team investigate with the help of the local harbourmaster, and find the dead man's sons pointing the finger at the owner of a fish market, with whom they have a long-running feud. Retracing the dead man's steps, Vera discovers when he drowned and tracks down a waitress who may have been one of the last people to see him alive. However, the case becomes more complicated when a witness runs away and a boat belonging to the dead man's sister-in-law goes up in flames

Review

A body is caught in a trawler’s nets and brought into a North East fishing port. When Vera lumbers to the crime scene she learns the victim has been missing for weeks.

The last mystery in the fourth series, first shown in 2016, calls on Vera (Brenda Blethyn) to break the bonds that bind a typically tightly knit fishing community, where old enmities die hard. The dead man, a lonely widower, was implicated in a fish-market fire that led to bad blood with another family in the town.

It’s an atmospheric tale of revenge and jealousy, and good use is made of offbeat locations, like the windswept South Gare on Teesside.
